Amanda, thank you for the pictures and history of founders camp. It is a most beautiful camp as I can see from the pictures.

Beautiful Decor!!! It’s an updated Londolozi Embrace that I can’t wait to see with my Family beginning July 9th!

Looks pretty blissful to me!

Most impressive, Amanda. While we have always stayed at Tree Camp I’ve toured all the others. I especially appreciate Shan Varty’s perspective and involvement in the refurbishment, as I’ve come to know her somewhat from reading Boyd’s Cathedral in the Wild.

Have been to Tree Camp and the Granite Suites, so far. And in a couple of months I will be enjoying Founders Camp for the first time. I am so looking forward to it. And even more so, now, after I have read your blog and admired the photos of this beautiful camp.
And the hospitality of Londolozi (and also most African camps I have known so far) is just unbeatable – worldwide!

Wow Londolozi, it is outstanding! What a truly fabulous refurb, a calm and different soft colour palette which looks so peaceful and welcoming.

In the 80s the original Bush Camp was my favorite place to be.

Fast forward to 2010 and the 5 camps at Londolozi. Of the three I have had the joy of staying in Founders remains my favorite.

#48 days And Counting!!!!! I can’t wait!

I have to tell you Amanda, that after reading your article, seeing the color palette and viewing the new old spaces, I can hardly wait to book my stay into Founders Camp once again. I think I need to place my reservation now for next year! From the photos displayed, it looks like my home away from home. Well done Shan and kudos to everyone else involved with the renovations.
