Hi Mike, I am sure you have made the right choice in career change to go from coperate world to Londolozi. As I understand in your blog, there is so much to learn and so much to do at Londolozi paradise. That is a well established lodge and well maintained, each aspect of Londolozi has educated people in there midst and professionals doing the job. Friendly and eco friendly and most of all they care for the ground and wild animals.

Nice first blog, Mike! We Londolozi “frequent flyers” know you’ve made the right choice and envy you the opportunity to work and live in the Londolozi community. We wish you well and perhaps even to meeting you around the campfire one day!

A really nice heartfelt blog Mike. Although I have never been to Londolozi and likely never will, I admire the philosophy of the place and the fact that everyone is one big happy family. I only wish that the rest of the world could adopt that attitude – what a wonderful world it would be. I am sure you will never regret leaving the corporate world to move to a place like Londolozi. I wish you all the very best and say that you are in good hands.

Hi Leonie. The philosophy and values of Londolozi are ones that should certainly be adopted around the world. Hopefully we will see you at Londolozi one day!

In my view Mike you have certainly made the right choice. The corporate world will always be there but a chance to be part of the Londolozi family is one in a million. Wishing you many happy years submersed in eden.

Mike, welcome to the Londolozi family! We loved your story and showcase of all the intricacies of the Londolozi philosophy and experience. We understand that the centerpiece of it is to “tread lightly”. We have enjoyed watching the evolution of the Londolozi experience, not just for us as guests, but the opportunities that are provided for the staff members and the region. We were lucky to have been staying at Londolozi on the day that Chris Goodman turned on the solar panels and lit up the lodges with that power for the first time. He also toured us through the water treatment facility and we walked away incredibly impressed. We are passionate supporters of the Good Work Foundation and are proud to see how that education model has expanded across the region. We hope to meet you on our next visit and we wish you much luck in your new job!
