G&T’s are just one of those lovely African traditions leftover from the Colonial times. There is probably not one book about that era that do not mention Gin and Tonics. As you wrote Jemma, it was considered to be medicinal.

Thanks Jemma! Luckily, due to the determined efforts of long-time Londolozi blogger, Michael Klauber, we can finally enjoy the three Inverroche gins in the US. Another Londolzi reminder here now!

Look forward to trying some of your suggestions during our next visit in July.

Better, a glass of South Africa’s own Merlotage (Sp.?) in the bush at eventide.

Best G&T moment at Londolozi- November 24, 2018 sharing with exceptional ranger/tracker and two other guests, beautiful sunset, the company of two rhino, and then the full moon-priceless!!

Very true! We have enjoyed g & ts on many sundowners . Victoria

My favorite G&T is the one I ask for with my first step on the camp deck after arriving from Joburg. I’m home.

Personally I’m more of a beer person ;)!
