A deeper connection to nature, a return to wholeness and an overwhelming sense of well-being are what epitomises the Londolozi Healing House experience.

Within an oasis situated on a private, 15,000-hectare wilderness, Londolozi pairs the unforgettable safari they have perfected over nearly a century with an immersion in relaxation, solitude and the curative power of nature. As the wildlife of this rich terrain traverses the vast plains, you should mirror their ancient rhythm by slowing down, being present and allowing mother nature to do her restorative work. Londolozi’s team of experts will be on hand to guide you on your journey, from an unforgettable discovery of majestic wildlife to a sweeping awakening of your consciousness through various healing treatments that tap into the intelligence of nature.

Londolozi has become synonymous with staunch conservationism and restoration and now welcomes the weary to experience the healing medicine of the wild.

At Londolozi, a private game reserve in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, returning to basics and honouring ancient ways is therapy. With Healing House, guests are offered an opportunity to unwind and embark on a guided journey of body reactivation, meditation, remembrance and more. By combing the classic safari they pioneered and mastered with a curated selection of rejuvenating transformation activities, they are able to provide the transcendent experience many journey to the wild seeking.

“We believe healing and happiness happens naturally when in the right environment. Every offering is carefully curated to illuminate the links that help us remember that we belong to all things… we are all connected” – Boyd Varty, 4th generation custodian.

The Experience

Londolozi’s guiding is the stuff of legend. Even as I write this, I remember time slowing down and the unbelievable calm that overwhelmed me as the pressing demands of modern life fell away. Each Londolozi tracker and guide undergoes a rigorous training and selection process that tests intimate knowledge of the land and respect for all its inhabitants. And so here, the wilderness experience was all-encompassing – from the unhurried exploration of the terrain to the leisurely and always respectful discovery of each species in this exhaustively rehabilitated land. In pairs, these skilful guides decoded the language of the Earth in search of its hidden creatures as we waited, in anticipation, for the secrets of the animal kingdom to be unveiled.

Then there was Healing House and the dedicated wellness practitioners who continue nature’s restorative work. While submerged in a tranquil haven overlooking the Sand and Manyelethi rivers, situated under the shade of ancient Ebony Trees, a true transformation began.
