Amanda, i was looking for documentaries on leopards as I had to lecture about them. I was borrowed a famous documentary film but I wanted to know more. Then I came to Varty and Manana ‘s story. It was so moving and incredibly new, in a secon centuries of gap between the species were tied. Naturally. I still watch Londolozi ‘s pictures and video in awe. Thanks

I couldn’t agree with you more, Bronwyn. I think the 1st time you come to Londolozi you’re just stunned to see a leopard in the wild, and then amazed at how they allow you to sit so close to them and how privileged it makes you feel. Once you’ve become addicted to leopards (like me!) after many visits, you have to keep reminding yourself that this is not a usual experience and how spoilt we all are to be there in their presence.

Thank you Bronwyn for the beautiful video and pictures of tree camp and the leopards who reside there.

Tree Camp is a beautiful camp with all it’s furnished furniture and lamps everywhere lighting up the are so beautifully. The mother leopard started the long journey of many years of experience and viewing the illusive cats. So majestic and absolutely stunning to view them them in their own environment. What a privilege Bronwyn you had as a child to grow up on Londolozi and experience all these majestic cats and wild animals that roam there. Londolozi is know a renowned Safari, and guests from all over the globe come to visit and view these magnificent cats.

Thank you for your inspiring thoughts and message as it applies to one of the most sought after animals to view whilst in the wild. To meet a leopard’s gaze, truly one feels a bond, awakening the wild self if it has yet to be experienced. To be in the presence of any wild animals is a gift that should be protected because there is a connection between all living things. It is imperative that humans realize the connectivity in order to save our most vulnerable and valuable resources.

Bronwyn, thank you for sharing your thoughts. From my first visit to Londolozi to my second visit was nearly 20 years yet the pull to come back was pretty constant. My third visit will be in the fall, two years after my last. It is such a privilege to be part of the Londolozi tradition and family. And, to have the opportunity to be in the beauty, the calm, the excitement of the land, and to be among a team at Londolozi who put the land, the flora, the fauna, and guests front and center. See you in September!

The other day, on a flight home, I met guests going to Londolozi and we talked a bit about our experience of Londolozi. It’s magic, they said and I can’t agree more. It’s magic, whether Tree camp or any of the other camps. And the multitude of leopards one can observe there, certainly contribute a lot to this magic. Being out in the bush, next to these amazing animals, is magic indeed.
