Dave, thank you for this update. Londolozi is just a part of our world albeit a part the shows us that we are “Stronger Together”. Congratulations to the national rugby team and to Londolozi for showing us the way.

Inspiring as ever, Dave. Your messages of progress and interconnectedness always bring me hope for the future of our world.

I am truly inspired Dave by your yearly “round-up” and only wish that your post was more widely available to readers other than the Londolozi blog. You’ve touched on a theme that the world needs, especially now, of people working together, highlighting our similarities and not our differences. Our core values desire the same things in life, and somehow we need to find the strength and compassion of working together to achieve our needs and dreams. May everyone find the Ubuntu within themselves this season and let it thrive in the coming years.

Londolozi is a magnificent place of peace, serenity and rich in wild life. Thanks to the Varty family and not forgetting JV and Elmon who tracked the mother leopard at first. Your message Dave goes a long way, and if only all would adhere to your words, it could change so many different things in life. People need each other and must forget the past and reach out to new inspiring adventures together. Making life a better place to be in surrounded with beautiful wild animals, nature at it’s best, together with all is a winning combination.

What you have achieved (and continue to achieve) is truly astonishing. Londolozi is the most wonderful example of what can be created when vision + passion + hard work come together.
Oh, and congratulations on your rugby world cup win – are your fingernails beginning to grow back yet?

The seasons greeting video message is simply brilliantly done and very moving – as always seems to be the case with everything at Londolozi.

You have achieved so much regarding conservancy and protection of this beautiful environment of yours.
Fantastic that there are still places in our busy and overcrowded world where one can find peace and quiet and wonderfully intact nature.

BRAVO!!! Love this site and planning to visit you all some day! Really impressed by everything you do and the experience you offer. Thank you!
