Shannon, thank you for the information and update on Londolozi’s sustainability efforts.

With pleasure, William. I’m glad you enjoyed the read.


Thank you, Bob & Lucie.

I am thrilled with the eco-friendly model that Londolozi presents. I only worry about the negative impacts of my own travel – and that of other guests – to get there, halfway around the world. Londolozi’s efforts certainly offset a good deal of the negative environmental impact, thank goodness. But the issue remains a big one…

I am delighted you enjoyed the read, Mary Beth.

Hi Shannon, this is such a great article and I appreciate the research you did and the details you included. For one, during my last visit I had the opportunity to visit a local farm as well as a GWF campus and it was one of the most special experiences I’ve had. Meeting David, seeing and feeling his enthusiasm for farming and teaching the locals about how important the work is, gave so much more clarity to why the Ripple Fund is so important. I’ve been fortunate to have traveled the world and now I’m just visiting a couple of countries regularly, but my choice in places to stay has become more refined, checking their sustainability footprint before booking. Many travel to Africa for the animals but end up becoming more involved with the philanthropy of the properties visited. Thank you so much and I so enjoyed our dinner get together!!

This is so wonderful to hear, Denise! I’m happy to hear your visit to the communities surrounding Londolozi was so inspiring for you, which we are so proud to be involved with!

Shannon thanks for update on Londolozi and traveling experiences. Londolozi is certainly the leader on Eco systems and also 5 R’s system.

Thank you, Valmai.
