Situated within six million acres of pristine wilderness, Londolozi has been owned and run by the Varty family for over 90 years. The word londolozi comes from the Zulu language and means ‘protector of all living things’. Endorsed by Nelson Mandela, who described it as “a dream I cherish for a model of nature preservation in our country”, it’s one of the best places in the world to see leopards in the wild. Some of Londolozi’s most popular features are its state-of-the-art photographic studio and its safari Healing House.

Londolozi’s powerful combination of geography and wildlife creates the famous atmosphere that returning guests call the ‘Londolozi feeling’. Wild animals move freely, offering spectacular game viewing and a true wilderness experience. Breeding herds of elephant and buffalo roam throughout Londolozi, while white rhino and lion concentrations are among the highest on the African continent. During their time in Africa, the Varty family has come to believe in safari as a journey that immerses the senses and awakens the spirit. To encounter wild animals in the bush is to discover an essential truth about ourselves and our world.

A first of its kind, the Londolozi Healing House allows guests to rediscover what it means to be connected to nature. In the hurried world of today, true luxury is time. The Londolozi Healing House is a place of remembering, a shift from the world of doing into the world of being. The experience helps guests combine the core safari excursions with artful resting, curated bodywork and yoga in the surrounds of the wilderness.

The Londolozi Healing House offers a range of crafted body work treatments as well as a menu of alternative therapies. From the Biophony Bioresonance treatment that realigns the frequencies in the body and promotes rest, the Body Activation treatment where temperature extremes promote circulation, reduction in inflammation and healing, to the Signature Sound Therapy treatment where a range of techniques are woven together to bathe each guest in the healing powers of sound while immersed in nature — there really is something for everyone.
