Eloise, I saved Elephant🤗

Willem you foto’s are absolutely beautiful. Reading through your story gives us so much insight to your safari even though you got stuck in the mud, your story is filled with appreciation of the Londolozi staff and the wonderful time you had there. The hippo foto’s are unique, I have never seen that before. The eagle about to fly an exceptional foto, not forgetting the lions all the other beautiful foto’s. Good story, thank you for sharing it with us.

Great photos! Thanks for including Cry & Phil–two of our favorite staffers!
We once experienced a flat tire replacement with lions nearby.

Willem, Thanks so much for sharing your story! It was wonderful to see the smiling photo of Cry and Phil, as they are two very special people who enjoy seeing on our visits. We have never been to Londolozi except during the winter months, so it was interesting to hear your perspective during what sounds like a very wet time. Your images were beautiful and it was really fun to see the hippo flipped! Thanks again for the great update!

What a wonderful visit to Londolozi. they never fail to make the trip different and surprising g and fun. We are trying to decide if we will be able to go maybe in the fall. Thank you for the wonderful pictures!! Victoria

How wonderful I do hope we will be free of Covid 19 and join you! I loved the upside-down hyppo it seems it had fun!

What a great time you had on your visit! Thanks for sharing your photos!

Thank you for sharing your exciting safari at Londolozi with Eloise!! Your photos and vivid descriptions are exceptional. I am quite envious of your 15 leopard sitings. When we were there I had no idea that we should keep track of the names (and Dean’s pronunciation didn’t stick after the fact)…except for the evening after chasing wild dog when our vehicle broke down. As we waited for a rescue enjoying our sundowners the Inyathini male happened by and made quite an impression! I’m still smiling from your happy hippo pics!

I enjoyed your photos and story, Willem and will look forward to part 2. Interesting to see Byron is still around, he was our ranger back in 2011 when he was still working for Londolozi.

Willem, how terrific that you and your wife forged ahead during your travels and were able to experience some of Cyclone Eloise’s weather. I’ve not been to Africa during the winter, as you’d not traveled during the summer, so your story has made me think of switching travel seasons, but not not this year- I’m already booked for March/April. Your images are a good combination of exciting moments along with the personal portraits. Wishing you continued great travels!

Great photos and a great story. And Londolozi ist the best – naturally

Isn’t Byron a fun guide to go to Londolozi with? Sounds like you had an eventful and exciting trip!
