on A Family Safari In South Africa ~ 10 Reasons Why You Need To Go

Join the conversationJoin the conversation

Jemma, Thanks for your great post about families at Londolozi. We could not agree more that a family visit to Londolozi is incredible! We have had our family on safari at Londolozi and can attest that it was the best trip ever and we continue to recommend it to all the families we know!

I agree 100% with you, Jemma, a family safari IS something wonderful and children learn so much about nature and will certainly appreciate it for the long rest of their lives. I have been on safaris with some of my grandchildren and we all enjoyed it immensely.
However, there is a little but important “BUT”: a “normal” family can never ever enjoy such a thing as a private family safari, which is a pity, because it is way too expensive.

I recommended a stay in Londolozi to a friend who was celebrating a big birthday and so she booked to include her husband and son. Due to Covid it was postponed a year, but they made it at the end of last year. In spite of the constant rain, they went out on every drive except one and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I was so excited to hear they had seen Ximungwe female And her son in the same tree – a highlight for sure! So yes, family vacations are special at Londolozi offering unique bonding experiences as well as self care activities.

Hi Jemma, the pandemic restricted us from going anywhere with our families and we feel cheated on time. Londolozi is the perfect place to spend time with the family and friends if all could afford it. The scenery and wild animals make up for time spend in captivity for 2 years. I would personally love to visit Londolozi and see all there is to see in such a stunning environment and breathe in the fresh air. Staff are well trained and always friendly and I just love getting my email each day packed with beautiful foto’s of the leopards and other wild animals.
