She’s the first true connection you ever made. She’s been your confidant when you couldn’t share your secret with anyone else. She’s the one who quietly gives you the advice you need just at the right moment. She whispers to you in the wind and speaks to you in stillness. Her hand is always on the small of your back, guiding you when you might have lost the next track. A nurturer, a provider, a healer, a guide, a warrior, a confidant, a protector, a friend, a home… she is Mother Nature.
Being a family business for so long, celebrating the nature of mothers and motherhood has been in our DNA for over 90 years. The matriarchs within the Londolozi Family have shaped our culture, how we behave and who we have become for many years, and so we wanted to share what motherhood really meant to the Londolozi Family.
Mother, Mumsie, Mom, Maki, Mother Dearest.
Mom, Mama, Mummy, Ma.
From the human mothers and mother figures in our lives to the nurturing elephant matriarchs, the strong, independent lionesses, the Mother Leopard herself, and all the animal mothers who share their instinctive gift of mothering with us all, we acknowledge that Mother Nature is the greatest mother of all, having taught us everything we know about what motherhood really is.
Wishing all Mothers in all forms, biological and otherwise, a Happy Happy Mother’s Day this coming Sunday. Thank you for all that you do and all that you are.
