Londolozi Tree Camp

Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Days 1 - 3: Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Londolozi Tree Camp Location Map

Londolozi Tree Camp comprises of just 6 sumptuous suites furnished in African safari style, situated in the Londolozi Private Game Reserve, a 16,000-hectare exclusive safari destination forming part of the famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

No 2 days are the same at Londolozi and every experience is tailor-made to suit individual preferences and expectations. Game drives are taken by professional, passionate and knowledgeable rangers and trackers. Trackers sit up at the front of the Land Rover looking for fresh animal tracks, while rangers drive with astonishing skill into ravines and through thicket in pursuit of elusive animals, simultaneously wowing guests with their outstanding knowledge and unforgettable stories.

Superb cuisine is considered an essential part of the experience. Much of the day revolves around specifically crafted culinary delights - morning morsels on the game drive, a fortifying breakfast, lunch and indulgent high tea before the next game drive and its sundowner treats and lastly, the grand finale, a traditional fireside banquet or a private dinner.

Tree Camp is a place of connoisseurship, leopards, orchids, lanterns and lead wood trees. With just 6 private suites, guests can spend lazy afternoons on their decks, champagne in hand as they survey the ancient landscape, elephants feeding below in the river.

Elegance and simplicity are the hallmarks of Tree Camp. In every detail and feature, from the private swimming pools and contemplation decks (salas) to the Ralph Lauren wallpaper and chocolate plaited leather beds, this exclusive camp provides a matchless showcase of African excellence.

With views that could rend even the most practised traveller speechless, incomparable service, and a unique sense of Seychelles, it is the combination of location, authenticity and the Four Seasons touch that makes Four Seasons Seychelles not just a resort, but an experience. In this lush castaway sanctuary, days promise barefoot ease as you stroll along the powder-sand beach.

Foodies will be spoilt for choice. Enjoy ZEZ for a hillside breakfast, or enjoy Mediterranean cuisine for a sophisticated dinner. Local Creole and Asian food is the specialty for dinner at Kannel, or enjoy cocktails and snacks at any time of day at Kannel Bar. For freshly-rolled sushi and sashimi, ZEZ Lounge is a must; but if you can’t bear to leave your villa then the In-Villa Dining Service is only a phone call away!

High above the bay, the hilltop spa epitomises the Resort’s sense of tranquility and seclusion. Sip a delicious iced cinnamon and vanilla infusion as you take in the breathtaking view from the relaxation area, before you enjoy one of a range of facial, body or massage treatments in one of the individual and couple’s treatment pavilions. Or indulge in a treatment at the beachside Spa Cabana, where the sea breeze and sound of the ocean will aid relaxation.

Villas are set in the natural amphitheatre of Petite Anse, with interiors that draw their inspiration from a mix of rustic Seychellois and French colonial style. The verandah, day bed pavilion and infinity plunge pool set off unencumbered views of tropical greenery and the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.

Let Kids For All Seasons take care of the little ones while you find peace at a class in the tree-house setting of the open-air yoga pavilion or enjoy a workout at the fitness centre.
