My Trip | You always remember your first time

Londolozi

Do you remember your first time? That feeling? Our clients, Tricia Soogrim and Andre Persad are in the midst of it, having just returned from their first safari. The safari crush comes with an intuition that this will not be your last safari, will not be your last time in Africa. On the flight home you’re probably already planning how to fit […]

The Mindful Approach to Saving Rhinos | World Rhino Day 2014

World Rhino Day 2014

There is a movement quickly gaining momentum at present. While rooted in the East, in Buddhist philosophy, it is rearing its head (or mind) more and more in the West – in our yoga studios, offices, high schools, prisons… Its name is Mindfulness. The creation of a mindful society can only be a good thing – imagine a world […]

My Trip | Africa’s Wild 3

Africa's Wild 3

“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.” These are the words of that fabulous bespectacled storyteller, Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr Suess. The Father of Fantasy, you could say. We consider ourselves Fantasy Creators too. Fantasy Facilitators. A little kinky, yes, but what is more […]

My Trip | A Honeymoon under the African sun

An African Honeymoon

From the penguins wiggling across Boulders Beach to the traditional dancers shimmying in the firelight of the safari boma, our travellers, Marlene and Philip Cunningham perfectly captured what we call the SOP, in their video of their African honeymoon.

Epics such as this six hour battle between buffalo and lion at Londolozi Private Game Reserve are not uncommon in Africa.

Londolozi | Winter’s Secret Weapon

Londolozi | July's Secret Weapon

“What’s the best time of year to visit the Kruger National Park?” As a year round destination, its tempting to answer, “Anytime of the year is magic!” And it’s true but if you push for an answer from anybody who knows the lay of the land their likely favourite will be, “July.” The Kruger is famous for its gargantuan […]

One Man, A Camera & Two Wheels Across Africa

Two Wheels Across

“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” ― Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild […]

My Trip | No place like the African bush…

Londolozi through the binoculars

Our CEO, David, has travelling down to a T. He manages to effortlessly flitter from one locale to another, across ocean or savanna, with unflappable calm. He’s ready to hop on the next flight as long as his iPhone, noise-cancelling earphones and baby, Matthew, are in tow (not necessarily in that order of importance). Luckily, these […]

Welcome to Delaire Graff Estate

Delaire Graff

Smoky, smoky… I detect gooseberry, aromas of cut grass, hints of citrusy tropical fruit. The way people talk about wine is almost absurd. It makes poets of us all. We are utterly seduced by finding the right words to describe the precise flavours that tickle our palates and noses. ‘Wine is sunlight, held together by water,’ said […]

True confidence: Le Quartier Français

Le Quartier Francais

Sophistication tends to adopt a neutral palate. Creams, whites and a whole library of beige have become synonymous with luxury. Some would criticise the trend as dull. It takes confidence to buck the norm and quirkiness to believe that elegance can coexist with the more exuberant colours of the spectrum. Le Quartier Français has just the […]
