Pioneer Camp Accommodation

Pioneer Camp is the most secluded of Londolozi's Luxury camps. The three private suites have superb river views and are perfect for honeymoons and private getaways. Yet this adaptable camp can also be converted into a private bush home for family groups of 6 - 14 people through linking glass sky walkways into interconnected family units.

The bathrooms are classic Victorian with modern accents in the marble, chrome and mahogany finishes. Throughout the camp there is a pervading sense of history thanks to faithfully restored memorabilia of photographs, old suitcases, silver , crystal glass and gramophones.
Everything about Pioneer Camp is deeply personal and provides a romantic backdrop to the adventures of a new generation of sophisticated travellers.
The Londolozi team hails from all around South Africa, and the neighbouring communities of the Sabi Sand Reserve.
This creative melting pot of staff makes for a vibrant atmosphere at the lodges. Service and fun are two top priorities of the Londolozi team.
Let us introduce you to our the Team of Rangers & Trackers, who could be taking you into the heart of the Londolozi Reserve in search of leopards, the Big Five and other wildlife wonders. They will transport you into a world of fascinating fauna and flora, exquisite animal sightings and fill your mind with camp fire stories. Londolozi's rangers enchant guests on a daily basis as they explore Africa's Eden in the heart of Sabi Sands.

Going on Safari at Londolozi:
As the original South African Safari destination, Londolozi over its 82-year history has built up a formidable team of experienced rangers, trackers and naturalists. This diverse team of experts boasts a combined guiding experience of over 350 years.
We have drawn on the considerable wisdom, talent and experience of our guiding teams, and returned to the original spirit of fun and wild adventure of a Safari to Africa. Our emphasis in 2010 and beyond is to redefine the essence of the ‘photographic safari experience’ by creating still greater opportunities for engagement and experience. Furthermore we aim to continually push the boundaries of fun, adventure, excitement and fulfillment throughout your safari adventure at Londolozi.
With over 16 000 hectares of traversing wilderness, no two game drives are ever the same. Trackers sit up at the front of the Land Rover looking for fresh animal tracks, while rangers drive with astonishing skill through ravines and thickets in pursuit of elusive animals. And all the while wowing guests with their outstanding knowledge and unforgettable stories.
Many of the rangers and trackers at Londolozi grew up living off the land and therefore have an incredible knowledge of the area and deep cultural connections to the fauna and flora. In addition Londolozi’s rangers specialise in photographic safaris and where possible will position the vehicle for the guest to get the best angle for photographic purposes.
In every excursion and adventure guests are held in the safe hands of experienced and personable rangers, the conduits through which the lasting Londolozi memories are delivered.

Bear in mind that you should conduct yourself in life as at a feast” – Epictetus (55AD – 135AD)
At Londolozi, superb cuisine is considered an essential part of the experience and a vital component of our philosophy.
Much of the day revolves around specifically crafted culinary delights – freshly baked muffins at sunrise, morning morsels on the game drive, a fortifying breakfast, lunch and indulgent high tea before the next game drive and its sundowner treats and, the grand finale, a traditional fireside banquet or a private dinner.
The choice of ingredients reflects our efforts to establish right relations with the planet.
Every ingredient is chosen with care, favouring home grown organic produce, free range game and herbs from our kitchen garden to create dishes that are irresistibly delicious and healthy.
Our selection seafood is guided by the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative and the number of imported ingredients is kept to a minimum.
Our recipes are a source of great pride as many have been handed down through the Varty family or were created in the Londolozi kitchen by Executive Chef Jaco Myberg. Jaco’s signature style, arises from exploring the continental fusion of Indian, Malay, Dutch, African, Portuguese and British influences in local South African dishes to create exquisite culinary experiences.
