Welcome Paul. Thanks for the ride from Skukuza!

You are very welcome Al! See you around camp.

Lovely blog Paul. Londolozi is indeed a special place. Looking forward to many more of your blogs.

Thank you Marinda. I am looking forward to contributing more blogs entries.

Sounds like you’re off to a great start on a new adventure. Enjoy!!

Welcome to the wonder that is Londolozi. I look forward to our eighth visit in a few weeks.

Nice post, Paul! I love posts that describe daily life around Londolozi – stuff that we don’t see when we are enjoying all the wonderful game viewing and sumptuous hospitality. Can’t wait for our next visit!

Thank you very much Henry! I have a few more ideas that i’m working on relating to daily Londolozi life. Watch this space.

I’d have loved to have gone on the birding game drive!!

Welcome Paul to a wonderful journey of a lifetime!

Welcome Paul! I look forward to meeting you in person on my next visit in April.

Thank you Susan! We look forward to welcoming you back to the magic that is Londolozi.

Tell us more about the refurbishment of Varty and Granite!!

Welcome Paul! It will be a pleasure to hear from you. Thank you for your first impressions. They made interesting reading! We are pensioners in our 80’s and so won’t make it to Londolozi except through our daily articles we are being sent – but we feel we have actually been there and got to know the animals and the people – and a very interesting bunch they all are! We are sure you will be kept interested and happy! All the best. Wendy and Neil MacNicol

Thank you Wendy and Neil for your kind words!

Welcome to Londolozi Paul. Please send regards to Andrew when next you see him and enjoy every minute.

Thank you Byron! I will do.

Welcome to the team Paul! We loved reading your first impressions. Londolozi is a magical place in so many ways! We look forward to meeting you on our next visit!

Beautiful post, Paul. Thanks for sharing your opening thoughts. We are happy to have you as part of the Londolozi Family!
