Set amongst the dappled shade of 500-year-old ebony trees, Londolozi Pioneer Camp is the culmination of five decades of design experience in the safari industry. Pioneer Camp’s three interconnected luxury suites and generous bush homestead makes this the most secluded and flexible of the Londolozi Camps. The private suites have superb river views and are perfect for honeymoons and secluded getaways. The Camp can easily be converted into a bush homestead for private multi-generational family groups of between 6 and 12 people.
The inspiration for the refreshed look was to weave the Ralph Lauren style into the original safari homestead resulting in the classic layering of signature textures and iconic features which reflect an African heart. Londolozi re-uses, re-engineers and restores the original feeling of an African Safari Camp. Pioneer Camp carries all the elements of authentic bushveld living, clean lines, simple timeless and classic elegance with a touch of crystal.
A sense of history pervades the camp through faithfully restored memorabilia, photographs, leather and a bespoke one-of-a-kind wallpaper that lines the Pioneer Camp bar and tells a story of the lives of safari pioneers from just under a century ago.
Londolozi Pioneer Camp offers guests a diverse range of activities to enjoy, perfect for any type of traveller! View Africa’s most impressive wildlife on morning and evening game-drives in open game-viewing vehicles. Every morning after the game drive, guests are offered the opportunity to enjoy a fascinating bush walk. Explore the Sabi Sand Game Reserve on interpretive wilderness walks led by experienced rangers or expert Shangaan trackers, and learn more about the area’s intriguing fauna and flora. Bush picnics are a romantic treat for couples. Other activities include animal tracking, a sleep-out where guests can enjoy a night under the African stars, stories around a roaring campfire and stargazing.
The wellness centre and spa at the camp incorporates yoga and fitness facilities as well as rejuvenating treatments for the complete safari experience. Spend the afternoon at leisure with a soothing massage or a refreshing dip in the pool. Therapies offered at Londolozi Life include Swedish Massage, Aromatherapy and Reiki. All therapies are also offered in-suite or on your deck. If you are keen for some retail therapy visit the Londolozi Living Boutique, stocked with signature pieces and artefacts that reflect the Londolozi spirit. Peruse sculptures, books and art that you can have wrapped up and shipped home, a wonderful memory of your time here.
