Hugh, every safari is a different experience, and Londolozi will never dissipoint.

Hugh, these were great photos🤗! I love elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes, hippos, rhinos – let’s hope the poaching stops!

Hugh–great humor and storytelling!
Bar is set higher after each visit–that’s why we just registered for our 5th!

Seems you’ve been infected with “the Londolozi Effect” but don’t worry – there’s no cure but to return as often as you can. Just keep in mind the 3 Rules listed by the guest contributor Al Kaiser…… have a great time (and pack a corkscrew 😁!)

Londolozi tops my expectations each time I’m able to be there….and, as you know, no need to bring a corkscrew. It’s all there for you.

What a fantastic blog Hugh, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and the pics were truly superb. Loved the words of wisdom that were so appropriate to each emotion. I hope you and your family will have just as fantastic experience that you had on prior visits. Thank you for sharing with us. Safe travels.
