The Londolozi Family News Update
The Legends “Heroes get remembered but legends never die” – Babe Ruth
During July we celebrate legendary people and wildlife. We begin with people who have had a significant impact on our lives and those who continue to inspire us. Every year on 18 July we gather in recognition of the birthday of the late Nelson Mandela. This year the festivities included singing, dancing and 67 minutes of service – 67 minutes that symbolise the 67 years that Madiba spent serving his country.
At our bushveld home we have only to look around to recognise the many legendary people who have dedicated their lives to conservation practices. At Londolozi we are privileged to wake each day to explore the bush and its incredible wildlife. While we are able to do this, we also remember that this privilege would not have been possible without a small group of people who have worked tirelessly to bring us the Londolozi that we know today.
Legendary status does not only belong to people and because of this we have devoted a series of stories to Londolozi’s legendary lions and leopards – read our story below about the impressive life of the Camp Pan male leopard. As is the nature of the bush, we are always surprised by the sightings we come across and some of these unpredictable moments are documented below.
