Cubicle Dreamin': Land of Londolozi

March 13, 2007 at 9:35 AM | by | ()

Cubicle Dreamin' is a feature in which we ask the hotel mavens to take some time out of their busy work day, surf the Internet, and tell us what hotel they wish they could beam themselves to right that very second--all on the slave driving companies dime, of course. Oh, like these people aren't surfing aimlessly anyway--at least now their purposeless clicking will be cobbled together into useful hotel stories--we hope. Have a destination hotel you are just dying to leave your cube for? Send the story our way.

In this episode, Hotel Maven Annie0007 fantasizes about a luxury safari trip. Enjoy.

March comes in like a lion... on a game preserve...

Let's face it, this month is a long haul. Even with temperatures on the rise and early daylight savings time, there are no federal holidays for a well-deserved break. Plus tax season is right around the corner. So what fabulous hotel can you pay for with that big refund coming?

Go to Londolozi Private Game Preserve, established 1926, a luxury wilderness lodge voted one of Forbes' most expensive and luxurious hotels of 2006.

Five hundred kilometers north of Johannesburg, it sits on the banks of the River Sand in the Sabi Sand Game Preserve near Kruger National Park in the Northeast corner of South Africa, nestled just under the Tropic of Capricorn. It's been run by the same family for almost eighty years, and heralded by Nelson Mandela as a "a model of the dream I cherish for the future of nature preservation in our country."
