The creativity and enthusiasm never fail! We look forward to our August visit and can hardly believe we first arrived 10 years ago! While the cast has changed significantly, the culture continues.

Happy New Year to you all. I thoroughly enjoy reading about all that goes on in Londolozi. It transports me from a grey cold England back to Africa – wonderful.

Amanda, what fun! This is a great blog with wonderful pictures of the fun atmosphere of Londolozi. My call sign is _Fire Tree_ thanks for including me!

Looks like one of my old fraternity theme parties….and we spared no design expense or effort and spent months in the planning. Of course at 19 years old, you’re at you creative best….this one looks sensational. Thanks for sharing the event and pics. You guys do good work. We do our safaris in TZ but have to rethink that with all the info we have daily about Lon. Jim

Absolutely brilliant theme for the Londolozi New Year’s Eve bash. I especially loved the leopard “patch”, complete with his/her aviator glasses. It should be offered for sale in the shop – I would certainly buy a print, cards, etc. As I looked through your photos, it appears a great time was had by staff and guests alike! Cheers for a glorious 2023!!

What a lovely New Year’s theme Top Gun. The Londolozi team looked stunning in their sunglasses and the decor on the Varty Deck looked absolutely beautiful. Hope you all enjoyed your New Year’s evening 😊. Reading the emails from Londolozi and seeing these beautiful animals makes everyday so special. Then Fridays the TWIP is such a highlight. Sundays is the ultimate with the video’s, we are truly spoiled with these stunning animals living in their own environment. Thank you so much for the Blog and these special emails.

Amanda, What a great theme! Once again you all have outdone yourselves! We loved seeing the pics. Someday we will try to make it for the holiday – it might be a while though, as we still have a crazy night ourselves at our restaurant! Happy New Year to all and we look forward to seeing you in 2023!

Great shots Amanda but wish you had identified who was who. We think we recognize a few but it would have been fun to see if we were right. LOVE the logo, sunglasses, and flight shirts!

So fun! Do the guests who book for NYE know the theme in advance so they can pack the right costume?

Another amazing theme night! Lovely to see everyone dressed in their Top Gun best and all the familiar faces. Cheers to 2023

I don’t know about “Top Gun.” “Top Lens,” “Top shooter,” “Top whisperer” maybe?
