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.

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!!!!
