Community, Devotion and Happiness: A Promise For 2016
As we enter a new year and a new chapter these sorts of issues become pertinent and in looking back on what we have built as a Londolozi family over the years and what we’re striving to create in the future, I found so many of the above themes common to Londolozi life.
The great sense of community we share was so apparent in our beautiful Christmas Eve festivities and the way in which Londolozi celebrated as one family throughout 2015. This devotion also extends beyond our immediate community and onto our guests who have added to our friendship circles that continue to grow across the globe. Ryan James’ blog on Reconciliation Day reminded us of how far South Africa has come in recent years and how intricately the Londolozi story weaves in with this bigger picture. It is stories like this one that inform our 2020 Vision, which only goes from strength to strength.
As 2016 approaches, we recommit ourselves to the values of community, openness, happiness and devotion. Devotion not only to each other but also to the land and the wildlife that we so care for. Londolozi, as the protector of all living things, would like to encourage you to join us in our 2016 journey where we continue to strive towards creating a life that gives us purpose and meaning.
Below is a selection of stories from our blog over the last month. We invite you to join us as we wrap up 2015 and look towards an exciting and happy new year.
