If you could describe Londolozi in one word, what would it be?

Adventure, fun, love, family, home, peace…???

Londolozi is made of people. It lives in people, comes to life through people and dwells in people. It is through our shared relationship with the land and the animals that this place finds meaning.

Because people are at the heart of Londolozi it seemed only right that they be given a chance to express themselves in a way that is truly human, through the shared word.

We therefore asked a number of our guests and staff to describe Londolozi “in a word” and from a million possible choices a pattern emerged, demonstrating a profound belief in a shared humanity unified, connected and with a deep sense of belonging. The feelings expressed would suggest that Londolozi has become more than a safari destination. It is a feeling or a movement driven by a shared oneness – called Ubuntu……“I am because of you”.

It’s a collection of 90 words capturing 90 years of history that show the profound heart and humanity of this place in  90 seconds…

What word would you choose? We’d love to hear it in the comments section below.

Just Beautiful.
Never been to Londolozi in real life but I follow your blog (great photography, leopards, lightroom tips).
It’s my daily dose of beauty, wilderness and wonderful story telling.
This post actually brought tears to my eyes…You’re doing a great job – on all fronts. Thank you all so much!

The one word I would use is Harmony. Everything blends together while working separately. Truly magical.

Hi Guys, you all said a lot of “one words” which I fully subscribe as a frequent flyer to Londolozi, but I missed one and that is: LEADING ….by a mile and in a lot of aspects

I would say everlasting because once you have been to Londolozi it is a part of you and because the wildlife and the land are timeless.

Love this post, and love all the words used to describe Londolozi. As the Londolozi family have become such an important part of our lives, I would add the word: “life.”

The one word I never heard used from the video was LOYALTY- to each other, to the land, to the wild life, to the earth & to Londolozi. Well done !
