Londolozi Founders Camp Location Map

Situated in a dense riverine forest overlooking the Sand River, Founders Camp offers breathtaking views of the bushveld and African wildlife in the heart of the famous Londolozi Private Game Reserve, a 16,000 hectare exclusive safari destination forming part of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve which adjoins the Greater Kruger National Park.

World renowned as one of Africa’s finest game lodges, Londolozi was the first game reserve in the world to be accorded Relais & Chateaux status, reinforcing its commitment to luxurious accommodation, fine cuisine and exceptional service.

The intimate, enchanting and child-friendly Founders Camp welcomes you into the heart of the Londolozi experience. Explore the reserve and its diverse wildlife on interpretive morning and afternoon/evening game-drives or join a fascinating bush walk in the company of an experienced ranger.

Founders Camp is ideally situated to provide an insider’s view of the secrets of river life. Ten idyllic chalets, repose in the shade of ancient ebony and matumi trees along the banks of the Sand River. 

This is an African safari in the classic style, replete with black and cream ticking fabric and original mahogany beds. Deep leather couches, military chests, compass safari lamps and a riverside lounge sala, create a mood of easy luxury and laid back welcome for discerning families and travellers.
