Londolozi Pioneer Camp Location
Pioneer Camp is steeped in history. It is here, right in the heart of the reserve, where over eighty years ago the Varty ancestors arrived after three days of hard travel by rail, wagon and foot. In the falling light they pitched their tents on the banks of the Sand River where it runs cool and clear over vast granite rocks.
They awoke in an illuminated landscape. Unique, beautiful, peaceful and remote, this wild and silent wilderness is still the defining experience at Pioneer Camp. The tents are now just part of the family mythology, replaced by expansive private suites hidden deep in a 500-year-old riverine forest of Water Matumis and Ebony trees. Cresting a gentle rise with elevated views of the Sand River, massive granite extrusions stand sentinel over this elegant bushveld camp. With only three suites, Pioneer Camp offers an intimate experience and is truly a place to indulge the senses. The intimate guest area at Pioneer Camp provides a unique interactive experience with the kitchen, sitting and dining areas all being open plan.
