You may also visit a small Shangaan village within the staff village and observe traditional local dwellings and meet the sangoma (witch doctor). Londolozi’s ongoing community projects may also be observed in the neighboring communities of Huntington and Lilydale. A sleep-out is available during the winter months. Built in the branches of a 1000 year old Ebony tree, the raised deck features comfortable bedding and mosquito netting. Waking up at dawn under the trees is the ultimate safari experience.
