Londolozi is one of the initial pioneering Private Game Reserves of the ecotourism industry in South Africa. The root of the name is found in the Zulu phrase for protect and means “protector of all things alive” – an inspiring conservation ethic that Londolozi endorses in its appreciation to the natural world. In total Londolozi has 5 beautiful lodges, each of which i would be covering extensively over the next few days. However, i would begin with the Founders camp, simply because it was the first on the list, not because it’s superior to the others.
Founders Camp is mesmerizing, cosy and child friendly. It is excellently placed in a way that it provides an insider’s perspective of the secrets of river life. Seven picturesque chalets and three luxury suites, resting within the shadow of ancient ebony and matumi trees lining the shores of the Sand River.
Founders Camp is an African safari designed in the classic bush bohemian style, complete with cream and black ticking fabric and original mahogany beds. Deep cream couches, military chests, compass safari lamps and a riverside lounge sala, creating a mood of easy luxury.
I cant help but picture myself spread out across this sheet very gracefully if i may add. . . . except (thinking), i would have to be peeled off it because i doubt i will willingly get off it.
