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.
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!
Connection, tranquility, family, vision, love.
Would love to visit your Londolozi
Having visited Londolozi three times I can only think of one word that describes Londolozi…”Heaven!”
Commitment or Family or Innovative (love the Creative Hub).
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.”
Caring (in all aspects).
Magical, healing, life-changing, harmony, love.
Wholehearted, values, integration, agape, hope.
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 !
Life-changing-mind-bogglingly wonderful (sorry, Londolozi needs more than one word)
Londolozi, you better hold on to Rich Laburn. He’s a creative genius.
Home. Family. Friendships. Love.
Wonderful!!!! My every-day’s dream when reading the blog, is travelling to Londolozi once in my life.
Energizing; happy-place; blessed; connected
Ames, well done my friend! This is incredible! ❤️
The one word I’d use to describe Londolozi is “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”.
I did not think Londolozi could be reduced to one word, but I have to admit that “Protector” really resonates with me. I once had a conversation with Jean Michel Cousteau. He told me a story from his youth that one night he was standing by the shoreline on a magical starlit night, in a state of near mystical revery, when his father, Jacques came up behind him, put his hands on his shoulders, and said, “You always protect what you love.” I hold the Varty family in the highest esteem that they have made this their life mission.
Londolozi is a place of Wonder.
An amazing GEM in our world. I visited in 2014 and enjoy reliving my time there through this wonderful blog. Hope to return in the next few years.
