What a special family you are!!!

Oh how I wish I could “come visit”! It’s just a short drive from Jozi to you but it’s a dream away. I’ve followed you since John’s wonderful first videos came out and sent me on a leopard-love life, and after recently reading Dave’s book I know that you have gone back to what you do best. THAT’s what creates a family like this! We’re the distant-cousins-once-removed, by economic circumstances that leave us comfortable but not Londolozi-comfortable. So we watch you from afar, and always wish you well.

Lovely! We will be back as guests, but for now, we send our daughter to S. Africa to help in a school. She is most excited and a dream come true for her…one she only just realized last year while visiting Londolozi and meeting Gogo Mo! So many doors you open, for SO many people, on each side, so they may pass through and experience a new life, a different life, a BETTER life! Thank you, and WILL BE BACK!! xx

That is wonderful to hear Geri, its amazing to know that her dream is coming true owing in part to a meeting with Gogo Mo and a trip to Londolozi. We hope to see you both back here and that her time in South Africa will be incredibly fulfilling! rich

What memories!
It’s been almost a year, but the feeling of Londolozi lives on, even across continents and oceans.
Great video!
Hope to return soon,
Chuck

Chuck, it is always reassuring to hear that the feeling of Londolozi lives on, over a year later and continents away!! It is actually inspiring and brings about a huge desire to continue with our mission and work, so that more and more people will get to have the opportunity to be a part of our extended family and embrace that same feeling which has travelled home with you. Thank you and we hope to see you back at Londolozi in the very near future. rich

We felt like part of the “family “the moment we arrived for our first visit. After 10 days we felt we were home. Now, we are looking forward to rejoining the “family” in March & being enveloped with the warmth of Londolozi.

As the father of the “girl from Chicago that never left”, I have to say thanks for the glimpse of my wonderful daughter. The number one thing on my bucket list is to visit Londolozi. Her mom and I are getting some things together in hopes that we can make the trip soon. Our son Steve spent 6 months down there and enjoyed every minute.
You have a wonderful thing going. The place that dreams are made of. We hope to see you soon.
Take good care of my little girl…

Good to know our gal from Chicago is still there. Hoping the Seigels get to visit Londolozi soon so they will better understand why it is hard for their daughter to leave.

If I were 30 instead of 70 I’d be applying for a job as camp manager. May have to join Gogo Mo at the school. We will be back again for two weeks next May. Passing this on to the friends we are bringing with us. Brought tears to my eyes this a.m.

Love to all the family from Fred and Jo Lynne

Okay, I want to join the family! Once a year at Londoz is simply NOT enough!

We’ve been so many times I feel like we should have been in the video too! Great video though, and Duncan .. love the umbrella.

Love to all of you and hope to see you very soon for another family get together. x

This is a land that takes hold of you in an indescribable way. Seriously, there are few places so spectacular and where you truly feel you are greeted as family. Londolozi was a ” bucket list” trip for me. Now I am doing what I can to make it a once a decade experience. Do what you can to get there; “disappointment” is not a concept in the bush.

Love this Boyd! Well done!
How I long to be back…

WOW! Love the new ad and the “family”… Remember my first visits to the rondavels and a few festive New Years… My love affair with Africa will never end, even if it is a little more than a hop, skip & a jump from Melbourne. You all continually raise the bar and it is so wonderful to see all the new “littlies”. The passion comes through loud and strong! What an incredible legacy. Not many family establishments work this well… Keep celebrating this awesomeness!
