    Africa's Best


    You find Game Lodges in Africa that simply do business - others do it for the passion. Londolozi is situated in the Sabi Sands Reserve adjacent to the Kruger National Park. It consists of several lodges that can accommodate a maximum of 12 guests each.
    Besides pure luxury you will find excellent game sightings accompanied with the vast knowledge of superb game rangers and trackers.
    One important character for me every time I visit Londolozi or one of the sister lodges is the valuable link between nature conservation and development and involvement of local communities.
    Game viewing is spectacular here - Londolozi is home to the Big 5 and Leopard sightings are phenomenal!

    Unique Quality: The lodges offer exclusive and luxury chalets blended into the African bush.

    The overview is:
    Six air-conditioned chalets
    Luxurious en suite bathrooms
    Indoor and outdoor showers
    Private Big Five game viewing deck
    Sparkling swimming pool
    African craft shop

    Safari Lodge offers an unforgettable African safari with the ambience of a family camp and friendly, attentive staff. Each chalet has a private thatched veranda overlooking the riverbed – perfect for viewing game and birds in the surrounding African wilderness.

    Directions: The game reserve has got its private air strip which is reached from both Johannesburg and Nelspruit.
    By road you would travel to Hazyview and then follow signs to the Kruger National Park - the Sabi Sands Private Reserves and Londolozi are indicated.

Driving in and around Kruger National Park

by maveric1974

Hi there,
We are arriving at Kruger Mpumalanga on the 15th and then drive to Punda Maria Rest Camp for a 2 night stay [ I realise the long driving distance]. Can anyone tell me whether we are likely to see any wildlife along the route? Also, we are renting our car from Mpumalanga Airport, but because of distance and time restrictions we have booked to fly out of Phalaborwa Kruger Gateway Airport to Johannesburg. Does anyone know if we can rent our car from Mpumalanga but then drop off our car at Phalaborwa Kruger Gateway? I just have'nt been able to see that on any of the websites, unfortunately..
Many thanks for your help
Rahul and Angela

Yes it is possible to hire a car at one airport, and drop off at another destination. Avis are good, and Hertz too.
You will only really see wild animals inside the park. You may be lucky and spot a buck or smaller wild animals alongside the road, but it is not a common sight.
I suggest that you contact (by email?) Hertz or Avis and ask for more details.

Your 380km (5.5-6 hr) drive will be through privately owned farm and tribal land, and maybe you will see some animals behind a high fence where a private person has created a nature reserve.

Watch out for radar/camera speed traps manned by teams of 2 or 3 people. They will wave you to a stop and are supposed to write out your "ticket", but they are notorious for taking bribes and then not writing the ticket. (When I was caught there a while back, I insisted on the ticket and the particular officer did not even have a pen!)

The Punda gate closes at 17:30 in June. Their phone number is +27 13 735 6870
Sometimes the gates make concessions for latecomers, sometimes there is a fine. There is not a public policy and it depends on your negotiating skills.

Travel Tips for Kruger National Park

Kruger is the best

by NedHopkins

Some people dislike Kruger because vehicles are required to stay on roads -- not permitted to chase and stalk the animals across the fields.

I admire Kruger for that reason. Elsewhere in South Africa -- and in Kenya and Tanzania -- the animals are pursued by jeeps and vans; and if the driver spots a cluster of vehicles or a flight of vultures, you soon join tens or scores of other tourists surrounding a kill or a group of creatures.

In Kruger you don't; but that doesn't mean you miss the action. In two weeks in Kenya I did not see a single lion kill; in three days in Kruger I saw two. It seems lions have learned that gasoline fumes mask their scent; roadside is therefore a good place to lay in wait for prey.

Overall, I saw more game -- from elephants to baboons -- in Kruger than in East Africa.

Use a Qualified Field Guide

by MattTB

If you go with a qualified field guide you won't miss out on anything. They can explain tracks, spores etc and have a great eye for animals! If it weren't for Niel my guide i would have missed a lot!

Kruger National Park enjoys a subtropical climate and is coolest during the winter months of June, July and August. This is also when it is the driest. The days are warm then and the evenings vary from very cool to freezing (0° C, 32° F). You need a range of clothing including warmer clothes for the evenings. I recommend combat-style trousers with zip off legs for all round use. Throw in a few light jackets and long sleeve shirts for diner.

The great thing about visiting in the winter is that it’s a great time to see animals. There is a lot less vegetation to get in your way and animals go to the waterholes to drink in the mornings and afternoons because of the lack of rainfall. This makes it easy for you to see a lot of them in one place.

Summer is a wet season with high temperatures. Highs of 40º C (104° F) or more, though the daytime average is about 30° C (86° F) and it cools to just below 20° C (68° F) at night. The rainy season usually starts in September and can last until as late as May.

The Big Five - The Leopard

by MarioPortugal

The Leopard
Pantera pardus (H: 70 - 80 cm; 40 -70 kg).

The leopard is a solitary and secretive animal. It spends most of its day in hiding. It hunts at night by ambushing its prey, and lives in dense bush, forest or rocky areas
