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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Londolozi’s Charm | A Rockstar, a Sanctuary and a Boma

Granite Pool | Londolozi

In 2009 at the age of 73, to the delight and surprise of her fans, Tina Turner announced that she would embark on one last tour. The excitement I felt was almost immediately deflated by a second press release – South Africa was not a destination on her ‘world’ tour (the inverted commas give a […]

My Trip | From the Zambezi to “Ka-ka-na-ka”

Inside Africa

Meet Andy and Fran Browne, two retired American gringos (their words) living in the wild coastal reaches of Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Married for 38 years, the couple had often dreamed of coming to Africa, to explore a wilderness of a different kind. And so, late last year, they did just that. Planning and booking their trip through our senior consultant, Helen, […]
