With its magical setting, Londolozi Tree Camp is ideal for a romantic safari complete with private pool & fine dining.
Built into the broad branches of giant riverside trees, Londolozi Tree Camp can certainly lay claim to the most dramatic of settings. A camp renowned for its simple elegant beauty, Tree Camp is a perfect choice for honeymooners or romantic travellers looking superlative Big 5 game viewing, personalised service and luxurious accommodation. The camp does not accept children under16 years of age unless the entire camp is booked exclusively for a family.
Frequently topping the Condé Nast Best Safari Accommodation lists, Londolozi Tree Camp is an enchanting destination in its own right. Positioned above the Sand River, the camp has stunning views, plenty of space to relax and its walkways meander through the trees, partly in respect to the most famous residents of the area: the leopards of Londolozi.
Game drives in search of leopards, lions and the other members of the Big 5 – rhino, elephant and buffalo – are conducted by experienced guides and trackers in the early mornings and afternoons. Guided walks and spot-lit night drives add a new aspect to the environment while a visit to a local village provides the human element. Comprising of only six suites, Tree Camp can be booked on an individual suite basis or as a whole, creating an exclusive-use camp for a multi-generational family or group of friends.

Activities at Londolozi Tree Camp
Morning & Afternoon Game Drives
Guided Nature Walks
Night Drives & Stargazing
An early-morning wake-up call starts the day at Londolozi Tree Camp; a morning game drive is one of the best ways to find big cats on the move and your reward for the early start is a hearty breakfast on your mid-morning return. Tea and coffee and biscuits are served on the drive itself. The afternoon drive commences after high tea, and finishes with cold drinks and an African sunset. On your return to camp a spotlight is often used to find nocturnal creatures such as porcupines, bush-babies and eagle-owls.
In between game drives you may like to opt for an additional activity: a nature or bird watching walk with your guide, an animal tracking experience or even a visit to a local community to experience a taste of village life. Evenings are spent around the fire, recalling the events of the day and enjoying a tour through the cosmos thanks to your guide’s astronomy skills.

Our extended family (16 travellers, including 8 children under ten years of age!) went on a wonderful safari adventure curated and organised by Walter Kohrs of Safari Online. It could not have been any better than we experienced. From our time in Cape Town, to visiting Victoria Falls, all the way through Zimbabwe and finally wrapping up at the amazing Chobe Safari Lodge, all the locations chosen by Walter were amazing.
His attention to detail, willingness to fine-tune and excellent responsiveness (over a period of several months!) could not have been better. He took time to visit us personally upon our arrival in South Africa, with lovely gift-packs and shared a wealth of advice, recommendations and tips. I cannot recommend Safari Online (and Walter Kohrs in particular) any higher. Absolutely amazing.
Best experience ever!!
They provide us the most taylored and customized honeymoon possible! everything was much better than we expected. We loved the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere and everyone made us feeling so incredibly special and gave us a unique insight. Over our game drives we managed to see all the big five plus some!!
Exceptional service ensuring a wonderful holiday. Highly recommended
Attention to detail & service provided was first class, from our very first email to the last day of our trip. Walter went above and beyond to ensure that we were notified of any changes, even up to our last day with a change to our flight time, at short notice. The safari was so much more than expected, from the rustic to the exceptional, every camp was different in it’s own way and our highlights are hard to single out just one as each camp was great.

Trip of a lifetime: Five countries, six camps, Vic Falls, Big Five plus more game
In June/July 2016 we undertook a trip to Southern Africa to fulfill a lifelong intention. We stayed at six camps, safari style, and had a great time. All of our expectations were met or even exceeded. For example, we never expected to see honey badgers or sitatunga, given the secretive nature of those species, but we did! All travel arrangements and connections worked smoothly, which is astonishing since we had several dozen transfers and meeting points; all of the connecting personnel were prompt, professional, and welcoming.
The trip was sensational and tailored to our needs. Simply fantastic!
The care by Walter was great from planning to leaving Johannesburg. The accommodations were perfectly chosen. If after a few days you thought it could not be better, you were told otherwise. It was an increase every day, with the 3 days safari in the Kruger, including overnight in tree house, the grand finale.
I would book a trip anytime again at Safari Online.
I was already last year in South Africa and Zambia organized by Safari Online. It was a absolutely gorgeous trip. Everything was perfect. This was the reason I booked this year in May and June an new trip to South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. I got everything I expected. It was a dream again. I know I´m coming back.
Faultless service, attention to detail and quality of accomodations.
The communications and service from Walter was excellent, and we were continuously fully informed. The information package and book received on arrival were excellent. We felt that we had been allocated carefully selected lodges at each camp and every detail met or exceeded our expectations.
The safari tour was wonderful, and a particular feature was the variety offered at each location which combined perfectly
Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.
Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!
We have booked at the Elephant Plains Lodge. We stayed there for a few nights and went on safaris. The lodge, the guide, the food and all the animals we have seen were fantastic. Really an outstanding experience. We can recommend Elephant Plains to everybody. Maybe you will not be as lucky as we were, becaucse we have seen the Big 5! But however you will not forget your stay at Elephant Plains.
We had a wonderful holiday with no hitches, perfectly planned for us and so professional.
Though we live in Australia, Safari online made planning for our family holiday so easy. Walter understood our requirements and nothing was too much trouble. The holiday was everything we wanted it to be and so much more. Every camp was ideally suited for our family and we loved each day, every early morning and evening game drive. Thank you to Walter for his attention to detail and his friendly, professional and caring manner. It was a trip of a lifetime and one that we will talk about forever.
