You have captured it all. The mixed feelings of serenity and anticipation happen at the first step off the plane,
Being outdoors all day creates an unbelievable experience.

Very nice!

Well said, Amanda. I can’t believe anyone could come to Londolozi and not fall in love with it totally and utterly. It’s my expensive addiction!


Thank you Amanda! Returning to travel is certainly the antidote to the pandemic and doldrums felt by us over the past year and I’m so looking forward to my return to the Classic Londolozi safari. My passport is dusted, my vaccinations completed, bookings confirmed, so all I need is the giant silver capsule to fly me half way around the world. See you all in April.

Indeed, animals, animals, animals and African nature, the great pleasures of the bush as such, walks and the wonderfully big sky during the day and the stars at night, sitting around a fire and making new friends – those are the best things in the world.
I am soooo looking forward to it….

I couldn’t agree more Amanda and it’s not because I am of the vintage age 😉It’s more the fact that I fondly remember the Londolozi that I visited so many years ago in all its simplicity. This is what ‘coming home’ means to me and even though you have moved into a different world of what people expect I will truely be happy just to be there and enjoy what comes my way. Simply being with nature and enjoying every sound, smell and sight will be the icing on my cake 🙏🏻💕

I have photos from 1982/3 of Londolozi that I treasure as much as I love those from the 2000s

i am. it sure there is much if anything one could do to BBC Londolozi to make it « better ». we have visited it 6 times and each time was fabulous and different!! waiting for the time when we can again come and visit!! Victoria

Beautiful video and so many wonderful images!! Dying to get there!!

What more could a person want more than the serenity, open fresh air, animals in their own habitat and wonderful hospitality that you get at Londolozi. Wonderfully said Amanda.

Amanda, it’s always great to see a post from you, because somehow you always end up touching our hearts and inspiring us! There is no doubt in our minds that Londolozi is a classic and it feels like coming home every time we pull in the front gate. Each time we return there are upgrades and additions that are thoughtfully added to the experience. All of our senses are engaged and there is always something new that enhances our stay. The special touches that the Londolozi family provides for the guests our carefully integrated into each guests’ time with you. We still use the Lightroom shortcut template that you gave us when we were training together in the photo lab. There are reminders of our time at Londolozi in our home every day! Cheers to a true “classic” and we look forward to our return and a sundowner with a Gin & Tonic (Inverroche please!). Best regards to all!

Oh my, I would love to be there right now!

Can’t wait to get back!
