Jemma, Thanks for the reminder of how special Pioneer Camp is! We loved our family stay there in 2015 and hope to recreate it on 2025 with our grandkids! Your passion about the Londolozi experience you are having is inspiring.

While staying at Founders, we had the opportunity to have dinner with friends at Pioneer. It was truly a unique experience, wonderfully hosted by Jordan.

Great interview Jordan. I loved your answer on what was your favourite thing about working at Londolozi. Sounds absolutely amazing to work there.

I would love to visit Pioneer Camp one day. Though I guess that all your camps are great. have been to Tree Camp and Granite Suites so far, tried to do Founders – fully booked. You say, Jordan, that winter is your favorite time. Which time is the one with the fewest number of guests?

I appreciated this interview with you by Jemma, as it’s apparent you love your job. Not only do you have camaraderie with all of the staff members , but you are fortunate to meet guests from all over the world, all the while enjoying nature at every turn! Keep enjoying!
