I can’t wait to come back for another Specialised Photographic Safari – what an incredible way to fully appreciate the flora, the fauna, and the talents and company of the staff! Best of all, I have some fantastic images which I am really proud of. Count me in again!
“We’re out-of-the-box. We’re committed to going beyond what is expected. For the wildlife photographer. For the star-gazer. For the birder. For the couple looking for a little bit more seclusion. We deliver the latest technology, the customised safari vehicle, the expertise, the experience and most importantly, the magic.”
A few years ago, gathered around a winter campfire, the leaders of the Londolozi vision asked a new question: Where do ‘innovation’ and ‘technology’ fit into ‘safari’? In what ways can we thoughtfully deliver our guests a variety of enhanced experiences in the African wilderness?
After a number of pilot projects (which included the development of our first electric Land Rover) we are thrilled to be able to offer a handful of one-of-a-kind, cutting-edge safari experiences.
Innovation is in our blood. You won’t stop us from finding ways to get our guests as close to the action as possible. Here are a few of our latest innovative offerings designed to enhance your safari experience…
The Photographic safari
Wildlife photography and filmmaking are very much a part of Londolozi’s legacy. A number of the most acclaimed animal portraits, documentaries and “dramas” were photographed and filmed on our savannas, high up in our trees, and, on many occasions, right outside our lodge. Sharing this visual feast is a passion of ours. It’s in our culture.
Over and above the natural photographic talent of the majority of our rangers, a small group of our team are highly regarded photographers (you might call it a ‘hazard’ of the trade). Not only do we pair you with one of these photographic rangers but we also bring in a professional photographic guide who is required to be your private photographic instructor and their mission is to deliver an enjoyable adventure that challenges guests to take great pictures in Africa. They are able to guide you out in the field, but are also experts in post-processing and editing.
Londolozi’s Signature Honeymoon Safari Experience
“Unsurpassed luxury. Yes. Exceptional, discreet personalized service. Yes. But what sets this experience apart is the emphasis on creating a ‘space’ – both on the game-drive and in the lodge – where the couple is delivered an uninterrupted and private gateway to the African wild.”
It might be a honeymoon. It might just be a romantic getaway. Both are important.
Both warrant a personalized itinerary that allows the couple to walk at their own pace. Time spent in the bush deserves utmost quiet, privacy and tranquility. Candle-lit dinners on a private deck. Picnics spread out in a shady spot miles from camp.
The Londolozi signature honeymoon safari comes with a short-wheelbase Land Rover, outfitted with a sumptuous safari couch for two. The safari also comes with one of the most idyllic suites in Africa.
The Relais & Châteaux, award-winning ‘Private Granite Suites’ are positioned in ultimate seclusion along the famous Sand River. From each of the suite’s elegant rooms, the views stretch across the river and onto the grasslands to the north of the lodge. Featuring a glass-encased en-suite bathroom, an outdoor shower, a heated swimming pool and, quite extraordinarily, a private outdoor river-view bath, this is a bush sanctuary that is ‘home’ for the duration of a honeymoon safari.
