Thank you Jemma for this comprehensive review on the ways Londolozi has addressed sustainability not only within their property boundaries, but supporting local community involvement as well. The Londolozi family are true pioneers in implementing the various methods of sustainability found throughout camp, from the solar panels to eliminating plastic water bottles, a practice now followed by other safari lodges throughout Southern Africa. Every effort to support sustainability is a win for the planet and ultimately its people. I’m so happy to be one of the 40% of repeat guests on any given day!

Thank Denise for your support – and for being one of our repeat guests helping us make a difference.

Jemma, Congratultions to all on the special recognition from Relais & Chateaus – it is truly remarkable what has been accomplished at Londolozi. We were fortunate to have Chris Goodman take us behind the scenes in 2019 to see the incredible care being taken to expand the Conservation Development Model. Londolozi has truly become inspirational to all who take notice. We look forward to your continued success!

Thank you for the kind words Michael and Terri. I’m so glad to hear that Chris has taken you around – it truly is a magnificent thing to see in action.

Congratulations to Londolozi on the new R&Ch award. You have truly earned it.

Thank you all for doing your part! <3
