I had the honor of traveling to Londolozi with Kristine on this, her second journey. I too have fallen in love with the people and the animals. I too, want to come back.

Thank you for this post … my family and I have shed an ocean of tears as we’ve waved goodbye to our Londolozi family. The magical sense of connection to the people and the place has changed us … has become a part of our daily conversation … we count the days until our next visit … home.

Well Kristine, you can say thank you to being able to “fly-in” because that is what the Bush does to you, it gets into your very soul, your pores and trust me the smell of the bush is something I wish that I could have a “whiff” of as it is 4yrs since I was in the Kruger NP and miss it like crazy! Just keep the dream alive & you and your husband will be touching down again! Happy Dreaming 🙂

You have put into words what most can only feel.. I am waiting to have my heart broken and my life forever changed.
Thank you Ms Dong for sharing.

Kristine. We know exactly how you feel. We shed a tear when we last departed Londolozi and like you, vowed to return. Next May we will return. Londolozi is the most special place we have ever visited.

Your first paragraph captured my heart and it only got better from there … like you were reading my mind. A beautiful reflection Kristine. Through tears of joy and sorrow, I got on that plane in June of last year knowing my return will be soon.

The countdown clock on my pc says: 77 days…7 hours…52 minutes till I leave Honolulu for Londolozi. So far away but those 30+ travel hours each way are worth it. First at Londolozi in the 80s when we lived in South Africa. Took 25 years to return in 2010 but am not about to be there for the 3rd time. Keep thinking I’ll find the pieces of my heart left there but, no, I just keep leaving more pieces. Londolozi is so very special in all ways.

So glad I’m not the only one that felt that way about saying goodbye on Saturday afternoon. It was my first visit – a dream come true in itself – and I can still well up now thinking about it!

Kristine,
You have so eloquently put into words what I feel about Londolozi. In a way, my journey is the opposite of yours- I visited Londolozi this summer to help heal my soul after a heartbreaking divorce- but the connection and emotions I felt mirror yours. It was a privilege to be there and I am fervently hoping I can return soon.
