Londolozi Founders Camp
Founders Camp - The Founding Essence of Safari Spirit
Founders Camp comprises 6 Superior Chalets, 3 Family Chalets and 1 Superior Family Chalet – giving this camp a modern and vibrant energy that appeals to discerning individuals and modern-day families. Four of these superior chalets have been especially designed to accommodate families on safari with a convertible children’s room.
Also in Founders Camp, one can find the yoga deck, a sanctuary for quiet contemplation, beneath the shade of a 500-year-old ebony tree on the banks of the river, where daily yoga classes are held under the watchful eye of the nyala, bushbuck and monkeys.
Londolozi is a place where, like binary rings of a tree the founders - and each person thereafter - have served and left their mark. Over the years the ripple effect created by Londolozi’s alumni has spread our ethos far and wide across the African continent, and beyond. Founders Camp honours these wild, early beginnings - past guests and staff who have contributed to building Londolozi. It is their efforts that have distilled the legacy of the past 50 years into the creation of the essence of safari spirit.
At Founders Camp, classic meets modern. This Londolozi signature camp is clean and uncomplicated and really comfortable, leaving nothing forgotten. You will get the feeling of all the comforts of a stylish African home that is ideally situated to provide an insider’s view of the secrets of river life. Classy, grounded and timeless - Londolozi’s Founders Camp represents a safari style that is inviting and restful.
Rooted in an ancient ‘wattle and daub’ methodology of building, this earthy design celebrates the natural raw elements of nature. Rock, fire, wood and earth.
Ten bespoke and varied superior chalets repose in the shade of ancient Ebony and Matumi trees along the banks of the Sand River.
Founders Camp is about simple sophistication with clean lines. The simplicity of layered textures creates depth and a sensory experience wherever you go. This fusion of elemental design is completely soothing to the nervous system, allowing for deep rest and relaxation.
Muted and calming within yet vibrant and alive, with connection to the wilderness, without.
