What a beautiful story! Thank you for sharing this.

I am delighted you enjoyed it, Sandra.

Jess, thank you and the Tunstill family for sharing their wonderful story.

You are very welcome, William.

Unspeakably beautiful! You’ve brought tears to my eyes…nothing more need be said…

I had the same response, Patrick!

A lovely story of family and learning and nature and love!

Thank you, Mary Beth. I am so glad you enjoyed it.

Inspiring story and also heartbreaking to hear you had cancer. May you be truly blessed with good health further, so that your children can come back to Londolozi once again and discover the bush in all it’s glory. The animals in their own environment, and having the Trackers and Rangers drive you around seeing the magnificent paradise of serenity, clean air, stunning animals and being treated to the wonders of the wild.

Thank you for your kind words, Valmai.

Shannon, Thanks for a beautiful reminder of hoe special Londolozi is for children & families! We can’t wait to bring our children and grandchildren next year!

Looking forward to welcoming you all next year, Michael & Terri!

Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful story of a family discovering their wild selves during their stays at Londolozi without consciously knowing how it occurred. The gifts of nature are there to inspire and calm us, once we disconnect from outside distractions.

I am delighted you enjoyed the story, Denise.

Thank you Shannon for sharing Lauren’s beautiful letter. So much resonates with us, especially the last line- I can hear you calling Life. I am here . Two more sleeps.

I hope you had a wonderful stay Jane!

So many beautiful experiences that this young family will treasure for a lifetime. Thank you for sharing your story with us, Lauren.

I couldn’t agree with you more, Chelsea. Such beautiful words.
