A delicious blog Anna. My mouth is watering just looking at all that wonderful food. You all outdid yourselves. Nice to see pictures of the staff involved and thanks for sharing that. Am sure everyone was fully sated. Beautiful setting also. I wish all at Londolozi a very Merry Christmas and a safe, happy and healthy 2020.

Thank you Leonie!

How quickly a year flashes by since we sat at your wondrous Christmas extravaganza of a dinner last year and from these pictures it would appear that you have exceeded all expectations! Once again it also appears that your elves have done a fabulous job decorating everything from the tables & bars to the room to themselves as well.. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Thank you dear Bob & Lucie – can’t believe it’s been a whole year! Look forward to seeing you again soon for a 1926 burger as well!

Wishing you a belated Merry Christmas Anna and everyone at Londolozi. The food looks as wonderful as ever. Russ and I are finally returning after a three year absence on the 10th January so looking forward to seeing you again !

Hi Karen! I am so looking forward to seeing you again soon! Happy New Year!

Anna, Merry Christmas to you and our Londolozi family! What a beautiful spread you put out! We especially loved seeing you in the Ardmore chef’s jacket!

Happy Christmas Michael & Terri! yes, Ardmore said yes!
