The thing I am most thankful for this year is my trip to Londolozi in April. It was absolutely life changing. I can’t imagine ever experiencing anything remotely similar anywhere else. It was magical. I’ll be back for sure. I don’t yet know when, but I’m going to make that happen.

We are looking forward to having you back Chelsea. It’s wonderful to hear that your trip in April was so terrific!

Wonderful photos! I wish Londolozi was not sooo far away! (I’m in California).

If only!

I am thankful that I was able to experience Londolozi with my family! None of us will ever forget our visit. I am also thankful for this blog so I can keep up with all the animals and amazing activities and good works going on!

Thanks for your comment Jody, I’m so glad that your trip here was a memorable one. We’d love to have you back. Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.
