The scene: Near Kruger National Park, one of the continent's premier safari lodges. Opened as a hunting camp in the 1920s and converted to game-viewing in the '70s, Londolozi is best known for its leopards, but I also saw elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe and zebra, all within 24 hours. My stay: 2000.
