Thank you for such a mindful blog.

Spent quite a bit of my life in Manhattan and continue to enjoy Greenwich Village. (Watching the wide-eyed freshmen from all over on arrival day at NYU is always hilarious!) Although I have spent the equivalent of 3+ weeks at Londolozi, I never made the connection. Thanks, Michael!

Michael: I loved the pictures of the staff – and also what makes a village – you hit the nail on the head!

It is what makes those of us who are fortunate to visit Londolozi feel almost instantly that we have become part of a whole where are welcomed and made honorary members of this larger family. Size of a village is not so important. From ones arrival at the airstrip where you meet your team to your departure at the airstrip hugs are exchanged and your Ranger is standing on the hood of the range rover waving, you have experienced a village.

Michael – what a wonderful perspective….thanks for sharing!
