Londolozi Pioneer Camp

Tucked beneath gnarled ebony trees, Pioneer Camp consists of 3 secluded suites linked by covered glass walkways boasting unsurpassable river views. Interiors are contemporary, yet sprinkled with items that invoke a sense of nostalgia, from black-and-white framed photographs to leather trunks and restored gramophones. If you’re travelling with multiple generations of family or with a group friends, this sophisticated camp can be converted into a private holiday home for up to 12 guests.

Each suite features its own personal swimming pool overlooking the bush, by which romantic meals can be enjoyed in flickering lamplight. Guests also enjoy access to a large sundeck where relaxing massages can be arranged. Being a Relais & Chateaux property, Pioneer Camp offers superb cuisine, many crafted using family recipes passed down through generations.

Activities at this luxury safari camp include two game drives a day in open 4X4 vehicles and nature walks with an armed tracker to explore a part of Londolozi’s 34,000 acres teeming with wildlife. Serious photographers might opt to book a specialised photography safari, which comes with an exclusive-use vehicle, an expert guide and access to the Londolozi media centre. Children aged 6 and over are welcome at Pioneer Camp – a dedicated Cubs Den program will keep them entertained throughout their stay.

South Africa Overview

Why travel to South Africa: Described as “a world in one country” South Africa is more than just a safari destination. The wildlife of Kruger and the many private reserves throughout the country are complemented by South Africa’s fascinating history and diverse cultures, the beautiful coastline and majestic landscapes of the Cape.

When is the best time to view animals in South Africa? Gameviewing is best during the dry season (May-Oct); however the summer months are good for general touring and sightseeing.

What is the culture of South Africa? Many different cultures including Zulu, Swazi, Xhosa, Indian, Cape Malay and European. A unique cuisine, as well as distinct music and dance. Elegant Cape Dutch architecture.

What is the climate in South Africa? The inland plateau has a temperate climate (17°-30°C), whilst the coast is subtropical and more humid (22°-30°C). The seasons are the same as Australia, however most of the rain falls in summer. Winters are dry and sunny, but nights can be very cold. The Western Cape is the exception, with a “Mediterranean” climate – cool, wet winters and warm dry summers (17°-24°C).

What can I combine South Africa with?South Africa is easily combined with neighbouring Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique, Zambia or the nearby tropical island of Mauritius. Johannesburg is a very popular gateway to most of southern and eastern Africa.

How to get to South Africa?Many major airlines including South African Airways, Qantas, Etihad, Emirates, Kenya Airways, Qatar, Singapore Airways and British Airways fly into Johannesburg. There are also many regional airlines such as Air Botswana, and domestic carriers that service local cities such as Cape Town and the Kruger National Park area.
