Thank you Jemma for the information about the name Londolozi and the origins of its symbol . Sometimes it is nice just to relax and think about what is around you.

Hi Jemma, that fabulous logo photograph was the main reason I first came to Londolozi in 2010 – it was on the cover of your brochure (from some time ago!) when I was trying to decide where to go on safari. That magnificent leopard just kept drawing my attention, saying “come to me”! (but no one seems to know which one it was?)

A wonderful blog, particularly Bronwyn’s beautiful words.

Thank you for such a beautifully written and informative article referencing the meaning behind the name Londolozi, as well as its logo. From the beginning the logo has meant so much to me – seeing the leopard, my spirit animal and how it interweaves with the flora and other creatures in the reserve. I appreciated the quote by Wendell Berry as well.

Hi Jemma such a beautiful name Londolozi and know we now the meaning of this special name. Thank you for enlightening us with this information. Just like Dave Varty, my favorite animal is the leopard. The Leopard Orchid is so beautiful and it stands out.
