A Good place to work Ashleigh. Myself being out of the hospitality sector, I know it is hard work, BUT if you enjoy it, it makes it so much BETTER & Fulfilling! Tree Camp is a special place! Hopefully ONE day I will be able to visit Londolozi!

Ashleigh was one of the main stars in our 17 day stay in August/September this year. If I could list all the ways she made it special I’d run out of room. Thank you, Ashleigh.

I spent the most wonderful week at Tree Camp in June with my husband, son James and his wife Alex. Ashleigh was an amazing host. Such fun. We have been lucky enough to visit Londolozi on 5 occasions and this was definitely our best trip thanks to Ashleigh and her team.

We met Ash at Founders last July. We look forward to reuniting with her in August when we split our time at Founders & Tree Camp. Also, we hope to see Thoko, our absolutie favorite staff member! Sounds like she’s at Tree Camp! Great!

Vin Beni, the man who perfected the martini!
It will be so special to see you again, both at Founders and at Tree.

Fabulous! You were so lucky as to see otters, I often read Londolozi blog hoping that there may be some news on them or on small cats like servals. The Majingilane were superb, but any lion view is so exciting! And the leopard orchid so rare and delicate, a real treat. Living at Londolozi is likely like being on holiday all year I guess

The leopard orchid is in full bloom as you read this! It is a special sight indeed.

All the camps of Londolozi are so beautiful. And each is also a bit different in its own specific way.
I love staying at Tree Camp, though trying out another one will be certainly great as well.

Ashleigh Chamberlain

Each camp definitely has something uniquely special about it!

I’ve never been to Tree Camp before. I have had the privilege to visit 3 others so maybe Tree is in the future 😊

We look forward to a visit at Tree Camp in the near future, Kara.

Hi Ashleigh! Hope all is well. Great article and interview. It makes us miss Tree Camp even more. Unfortunately we will not be able to visit in 2023 but we will see you in 2024! Take care. Brian and Kitty

Brian and Kitty, so lovely to hear from you. Shaun sends his love.
Only a year or so to go until we see you again.

I enjoyed reading your interesting interview with Ashleigh, and how her work journey has changed since her initial hire. It’s fortunate that Londolozi offers opportunities to all staff members to move from camp to camp as need arises. Continue to enjoy your time at Tree Camp Ashleigh.

Thank you very much Denise! It has been a real privilege to shift from camp to camp and role to role.
