First time was September. Second time was March. Third time will be September. Each day was spectacular-especially when a rhino was sighted. However, if it was up to me, I would be in Londolozi every day of the year, forever!

After experiencing the magic of Londolozi last April during our 10th anniversary, the right answer is “anytime” is the right time to be at Londolozi. We cannot wait to plan a trip back in the future 🙂

I can’t pick a particular time which I’d say is best, I love winter as game viewing is great, I love spring when everything starts turning green and all the migratory birds come back, I love summer when everything is lush and beautiful (and gin and tonics flow freely) and I love autumn when the bush starts turning, the evenings start cooling and red wine becomes more palatable in the scorching hot Lowveld.

Lovely blog.

Thank you Karin, it is gorgeous at this time, we had some wonderful rains in March this year and now spectacular sunny days!

I have been in March. August, September and November. Hot in March but mating leopards and all kinds of activity near the river. The climate is gorgeous in Aug/Sep and in Sep we had had a couple of rainshowers which meant the bush had greened up a bit. But November!….wow. The Impala were carpet bombing the bush with their young and the predators were extremely active. The bush was green but not too high so we could see the game. The weather can be an issue; we went out on a cold, rainy horrible day…indeed I think only about 4 vehicles were out in the whole camp. We saw very little for a couple of hours and then big well done to Lucian Beaumont as he got us onto a live wild dog hunt….absolutely the best sighting in 4 visits to Londolozi and a great reward for braving the weather.

Amazing to see a wild dog hunt – Lucian gets full points for that! I’m looking forward to the lambing season and to seeing the newborns take their first steps.

Love this! If I had one final day to live and it was a rainy, cold, dark day – I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else other than Londolozi!

Kate Collins

I would join you! Thanks Kristine, I hope to meet you on your next visit.

Borrowing from Arden: ” However, if it was up to me, I would be in Londolozi every day of the year, forever!”

I have thought it would be great to be there in July and celebrate our wedding anniversary (we were married in Evander in 1981) but I know I wouldn’t like the winter weather so I return in November (for a birthday trip) as often as possible. But, yes, I would be in Londolozi every single day of the year if I could.

November is going to be a special month not only with the impala lambs springing up but also with your birthday! I hope to meet you in November.

I reckon the best time to visit Londolozi is always the next time!

Trying to determine either a late June or late December trip. Any advice?

Typically how many rainy days do you have during December?
