There was much excitement in the Londolozi village yesterday with staff and guests alike celebrating the wonderful occasion of Women’s day. The festivities were kicked off with wonderful praise and worship lead by Molly, there was spectacular dancing and singing by a few of the ladies followed by a ladies only soccer match. Women’s day, the 9th August, commemorates the national march of women on this day in 1956 to petition against legislation that required African persons to carry the “pass”, special identification documents which curtailed an African’s freedom of movement during the apartheid era. It is a momentous occasion for women and men in South Africa and we do not take the celebrations of it lightly as you can see in the pictures…
We all hope you had a wonderful day and look forward to hearing how you celebrated!

Georgia on the bike is a priceless photo! Thanks. I’m sure it was a grand day for all.
Great post! What fun!
Fantastic photos. Thank you!
LOVE IT!!! Reminds me of a Peter Gabriel song…’Shaking the Tree’. Maybe you could make a video for it (If you haven’t already!)
Lovely pictures Kate, yes I think a video will make it very special for us armchair viewers??
Thanks for sharing
Love seeing so many of the beautiful ladies of Londolozi – love the color – especially the dancer with whistle.
And, Georgia, as always you are a star – running, playing, biking.
