Londolozi Private Granite unassumingly hugs the igneous extrusions that texturise the flowing waters of the Sand River. The granite surfaces that are just a stone’s throw away from the expansive private decks are playgrounds for herds of elephants hydrating themselves in the heat of the day. The Private Granite Suites are set in the inner sanctum of Londolozi’s five camps, in the heart of the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve which is adjacent and open to South Africa’s infamous Kruger National Park, a globally renowned premium luxury safari destination.
Londolozi Private Granite is the most exclusive of Londolozi’s camps and the extraordinarily positioned intimate space is reserved for the privacy of a maximum of 6 guests. The suites can be booked individually or collectively as a private camp, making it ideal for honeymoon couples or small groups celebrating special occasions.
Each of the three expansive suites mould seamlessly into the surrounding environment, emphasizing raw stone walls and natural elephant grey fabrics elegantly elevated with luxurious silver finishes and antique oversized mirrors.
The Private Granite Suites draw much fascination with the bold positioning of their outside baths on each suite’s private deck. Can there be a more idyllic setting worldwide for an evening bathe? From the sumptuous warmth of an outdoor soak it is difficult to distinguish whether what you see in the waters beyond are fireflies or the reflection of the Milky Way.
Matriarch of hospitality
Every aspect of the Private Granite Suites pulsates romance and the loving team looking after you will ensure that every personal request is met and exceeded. The intimacy of the camp invites guests to instantly become part of the Londolozi family and the banqueting style dinner table on the main deck is commonplace for storytelling, wine-tasting and tantalising gastronomic feasts.
Dining in the privacy of your suite can be arranged by your personal butler and each generous mini bar may tempt you to spend the day lounging around your private plunge pool or even indulging in a massage looking out over the river from your private deck.
The Granite Camp manager can escort you on a guided tour of the other camps, or alternatively you can explore the Londolozi Living gift shop, the fitness centre, partake in a yoga class or join in on a visit to the Shangaan cultural village. The day can be choreographed as you wish and the team will ensure your enjoyment of a holistic African experience.
