Shannon, Your story is brilliant and we are excited that Londolozi has been recognized in so many ways for it’s “forward thinking”. We feel lucky to have seen the progress over the past decade and more. Memories abound of the steps that have been taken to incorporate the Londolozi Conservation Model into the guest experience. We were at Londolozi the day the solar panels were turned on for the first time and were amazed by Chris Goodman as he toured us way behind the scenes! You have provided a huge amount of data for us to digest and we will do our homework to stay current. We loved seeing all of the great staff and family images too! Well done!!!!

Londolozi is indeed a very special and lovely place. It is really satisfying to think that by going on safari there, lots of people get good jobs, can support their families and that nature does not suffer because of the guests. The opposite: animals can thrive and are protected there.

This is such an interesting and informative article and I’m so glad you posted it. I’ve admired the Londolozi model pertaining to their guests, protecting the environment and most of all, supporting the locals in their quest to have a meaningful job and good education for their families. I am really looking forward to going off property to view and meet some of the farmers that are part of the Ripple Fund that I proudly support. See you soon!
