- Fantastic for families
- Year round ‘Big Five’ viewing
- Traditional atmosphere
- Sabi Sands
Londolozi Founders Camp is one of five connected camps all sharing a position above the Sabi river in the Londolozi private reserve, part of Sabi Sands. One of the more reasonably priced options in Londolozi, Founders camp offers a luxury stay and excellent game viewing. A fantastic kid’s programme makes it a perfect base for young families.
Recently renovated, the main areas have a laid back but luxurious feel and the lounge area offers spectacular views. The communal facilities are slightly limited but the camp runs daily group yoga classes and all guests have access to the facilities at the neighbouring Varty camp, which include a gym, pool and library. Londolozi is one of the best locations in Africa to see leopards and 3 hour long morning and evening game drives provide the perfect opportunity. Led by knowledgeable rangers, many whom have grown up in the area, specialist rhino safaris, walking and photographic safaris are all available. The game in the reserve is superb and provides reliable ‘Big Five’ viewing.
The rooms are divided into 10 luxury chalets, 7 of which can accommodate families of four. Nestled along the bank of the Sand River, the en-suite rooms are classically furnished and include all modern amenities such as air conditioning and internet access. Every chalet has indoor and outdoor showers, a large wooden deck with sweeping views over the river and private plunge pools as an alternative to a communal pool. Family suites connected by glass sky walks are an impressive addition to the family friendly atmosphere.
The activities run for children are hard to beat. ‘The Cubs Den’ runs a personal programme for 4-16 year olds that is thoughtfully put together and offers the children a broad choice. Those over 6 are able to join their parents on game drives and there is an option of a private vehicle for families with children under six. All the children’s programmes are run at no extra cost and so for young families this is an ideal choice.
A fabulous and memorable holiday to Africa and a big thank you to Lisa at Tourdust for her in depth knowledge and for designing our once in a lifetime trip.
The original thoughts were to stay in Cape Town and then go on safari. After many discussions and a lot of patience from Lisa we settled on Capetown, a safari in Botswana and Victoria Falls. It turned out to be the most special and amazing holiday that we have been on.
Cape Town accommodation was great, modern, clean, spacious and close to the V&A. The views at the back were of Table Mountain! We opted for guided tours to Cape of Good Hope and whale watching. Our guide called Chris was excellent, he was very knowledgeable and chatted to us alot and was great with my children.
Next was Botswana and Muchenje Lodge. The location was fantastic with views over the Chobe river. Right from the start we were looked after so well and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We went on lots of different safari drives from early morning, late evening and all day ones and my favourite was on the river itself as we were able to get really close to the elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Our guides were brilliant (particularly Rambo) and helped us to find all the animals we wanted to see, even the elusive wild dogs and leopards.
Meals were at set times, which was lovely as it meant we could talk to the other guests and hear about their day and it was nice that some of the guides joined us as well. We also loved the singing and dancing that the staff did after one meal.
Final destination Zambia and Victoria Falls, where we stayed at Waterberry Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi. An amazing location right on the river bank.
We did a guided tour to Victoria Falls and yet again we had a brilliant tour guide.
From our lodge we did a river cruise, saw a magnificent sunset and we tried our hand at fishing which was great fun.
I would love to go back to Africa again to visit some other countries and I will definitely use Tourdust again. Thank you so much Lisa.

We had a fantastic trip thanks to your organisation! No problems encountered at all! Simbavarti were a joy to stay and explore with; the hotel in Capetown perfectly positioned to allow us to walk to the conference, and Camps bay accommodation was just lovely. The flights, transfers and staff we met along the way we're all very friendly and helpful. Having a car at the end was a perfect finale. My 10 yr old daughter came home with new insights on the world.
I had been meaning on my return to email you, but launched straight back into a weekend oncall and business as usual, so thanks for emailing.
I have sung your praises to friends and family!
