When I was 25, I spent 15 months in South Africa, in a small town called Harrismith well known to those who drive from Johannesburg to Durban as it is a classic pit stop to refuel. It is then that I first heard ...

The Magic of Londolozi…….once you fall under the spell, you want to keep coming back! Wonderful photos and memories……

Great article on Londolozi. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

Sylvain, What a great depiction of Londolozi. Admittedly for all the reasons you stated plus many more it was, is and always will be the most memorable place I have visited. I follow the Blog daily and even though my last trip was late November 2017 I feel like it was yesterday. I hope to be back soon.

Well said, Sylvain! Your reasons for coming back to Londolozi again and again are like ours – and we just returned home from our 6th visit. It is a very special place and, despite having travelled the world, we keep coming back.

Sylvain, I concur wholeheartedly with your reasons as to why we keep going back to Londolozi. It is such a special place. It encompasses everything you want and need when going to Africa on safari: from the amazing wildlife you experience daily; the exceptionally knowledgeable guides and trackers; the gastronomic delights from the kitchen; the outstanding accommodation; the sense of safety and security you feel while there, and just the total ambience of the whole reserve or concession. Londolozi is a magical place where you feel a strong connection with nature and also yourself. Why would you go anywhere else?

Hello Sylvain! Thank you for your article about Londolozi. It was very nice to read. Beautiful pictures! We also had a lovely time when we visit Londolozi! Thank you for sharing!

Thank you Sylvain! Your post and photos helped remind us of how much we have missed our time at Londolozi, and how we can’t wait to return! So glad you found the magic there too!

These are the same reasons (and almost the same circumstance. We lived in South Africa from 1981 to 1985.) that my heart rests at Londolozi. Every trip back since the 80s has been memorable even if it took 25 years for that first return trip. I yearn for the times we can return and enjoy the special pleasures of Londolozi (and that for me always includes Freddy as tracker.)

Well said, Sylvain, I couldn’t agree with you more….and your photos are terrific. Like you, I don’t normally go back to the same place, but Londolozi is my exception as every game drive is different (and I’m up to 138 now!) and I am just as excited before every drive. I had no idea on our 1st visit that I would come back a further 11 times! Just 4 months to my next visit…

Sylvian thank you for sharing your stunning foto’s and your own experience at Londolozi. The variety of foto’s is astounding. Londolozi is well known for their leopards. The Londolozi team go out of their way to make their guests feel at home, and always try and find the animals that the guests request to see.

We have just scheduled our 6th visit to Londolozi and continuously hear the questions from friends who cannot understand our travel plans. No 2 days are alike–never mind 2 visits. Having had a hectic career experience, I was amazed at how quickly I became so relaxed at our first visit and every visit thereafter. You have captured much of our reasoning. I have written to Dave Varty many times sharing that I thought no visit could ever top the previos one–and then it did.

Well done Sylvain! We COMPLETELY agree with everything you have said and would add that every ranger/guide team we have had at Londolozi has been the best ever! And Kyle & Prof are the top of the list. We’ll be with them next week again!!! Can’t wait!!! Cats & dogs, cubs & pups … here we come!

Thank you for sharing your experience and the wonderful pictures, also for adding the bush babies that are so cute. There surely are intriguing species that pop out at night… the Nhlanguleni female with her cubs are idyllic! It must be a real gift to be trusted by a leopard. A magical experience.

I appreciated your story and images. Like you, I know there are many choices of places to visit in the world that I’ve yet to explore, but once I discovered Londolozi, it became my #1 place to stay. It gives me just what I want, and more!

What a great share! On one of our first dates , 12 years ago (my now husband) asked me, if I could go anywhere in the world where would I want to go. I said “ to Africa to see the animals”…. Needless to say, I fell in love with him that very moment and the very next day began planning our trip. Very good friends of ours lived in Capetown and had told us about Londolozi. The memories we came away with are life long. I think about them everyday… and hope to be back soon ❤️
