‘To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.’
– William Blake
Londolozi Wellness or ‘Londolozi Life’ as it is affectionately known,, is designed to reflect and harmonise with the rhythms and cycles of nature. Londolozi Life offers the chance to create balance – in body, mind and soul – through the understanding that living in harmony with nature promotes healing.
Londolozi Life is integral to our philosophy of facilitating a deep engagement with nature and creating personal journeys of exploration. The Londolozi Life concept is unique, drawing inspiration from ancient healing methods and marrying the philosophies of East and West within an African context.
Londolozi falls squarely within the base area of the Nilotic Meridian, a line running north-south from pole to pole at 31 degrees East longitude – known as ‘the line of first time’ – which ensures that it is a place of great healing, energy and significance.
Yoga means ‘union’ in Sanskrit, referring to the bringing together of mind, body and spirit. Postures practiced at Londolozi include Iyengar, Ashtanga, Jivamukti and Tripsichore. The classes are suitable for beginner and intermediate levels and are conducted on the Londolozi Yoga Deck, a wonderful sanctuary suspended high in the arms of a 500-year-old ebony tree. Inclusive daily classes are held whilst nyala, bushbuck and monkeys abound. On special occasions elephants will move through the riverine bushveld below.

Massage has been practised as a healing therapy for centuries, providing release from stress and promoting increased blood flow and healing. Therapies on offer at Londolozi Life include Swedish massage, aromatherapy and reiki. All therapies are also offered in the privacy of your room or deck.
Londolozi’s fully equipped gym offers running, cycling and rowing machines which allow for a perfect workout, complemented by a daily routine of eating well and relaxing into harmony with nature. The gym is situated overlooking the Varty Camp pool and is open to all guests 24 hours a day.
