Stunning! It must be one of the best New Years eve parties ever. The decor look lovely. Anna’s menu sound fantastic and look delicious. And all the bubbly. Love it. All the best to the Londolozi family for 2018. It is going to be a great year.
Now this is the Law of the Jungle – as old and as true as the sky; And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk; the Law runneth forward and back – for the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
New Year’s Eve at Londolozi is always the party to be at! The last few years have seen a variety of themes; A Day at the Races, 1920s Tennis and Savannah Nights being just a few. Last night was Jungle Explorer, with Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem forming the undertone for a wild evening fuelled by more bubbly than one could shake a stick at, cucumber tequila (absolutely delicious!) and a mouth watering menu laid on by Executive Chef Anna Ridgewell.
General Manager Duncan MacLarty got the ball rolling with a short welcome speech, after which came dinner, with the evening’s formal entertainment being rounded off by Duncan and his camp manager team performing a rather loosely interpreted dramatisation of the exploits of Harry Kirkman and Princess Alice, who met Harry in the Lowveld in the late 1920s.
All that was left to do was await the countdown, with Kim Drake passing round her traditional 100 glasses of Bubbles to toast in 2018.
Below are a few highlights of the evening, but in the meantime, all of us at Londolozi would like to wish you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.
