Just waiting until my grandson is old enough…….

It’s definitely worth the wait – a trip he will never forget.

Enjoyed reading about your educational philosophy. Although my students are, in most cases, college-level, my background also includes teaching middle school and high school students. It’s really important to catch the students’ attention, no matter the age. The tactile experience is really important. Good job!

Really well done Jemma, and a subject asked of all of us who have been to Africa. In fact, all of your blogs are so interesting to read, but there is no “bio” telling us about you, the storyteller. Regardless, I plan to page mark this blog to give it to those who ask us this question the next time. Thank you for putting into words why families should bring the kids. The only exception I find, is that kids need to be at least eight to really have a great bush experience. We have also found that giving a child a camera before the trip heightens their overall experience and with the ease of creating a photo album post-trip it becomes an experience that is relived over and over.

Hi Bob and Lucie, thank you for reminding me about my bio – something I’ve been meaning to get to. I’m so thrilled to hear you have been enjoying my blogs. Above the age of 8 is a great age to bring children on safari – and giving them a camera to document the experience is a wonderful idea – a coffee-table book in the making.

I have taken a grandchild on a family safari and he enjoyed it immensely.

Some good advice in this blog Jemma. Londolozi truly is an amazing place for everyone. Thanks for sharing.

Jemma, We loved your blog and wholeheartedly agree with you about how Londolozi is an incredible experience for families. We have taken multiple groups of children (some have been our own!) and parents to Londolozi over the past decade and can honestly agree with everything you said! Now we are looking forward to bringing our grandchildren!
