It has taken me nearly a month to come back down to earth here in Darwin, Australia after our Londolozi Tree Camp experience to be able to write this review. Only now am I able to describe the unforgettable time we experienced. Already we have a return visit booked for around the same time in 2014 and are seriously counting down each passing day till we go back. Every day provided highlights beyond our expectation! Game drives with Mark as guide and Bennet as tracker, provided not only many special sightings and scenery but also a level of professionalism that must be acknowledged. Being a novice at photography, I appreciated the advice, patience and on-the-spot tutorials Mark was happy to provide to ensure the images I captured on film were fantastic.
My husband and I now understand the meaning of being part of the "Londolozi family" because that is precisely how we felt. Erin's welcoming manner, Robert's demeanour and attention to detail and personal service at meal times, the friendliness of all other staff with whom we came in contact was exceptional. Duncan's pairing of wines with our special dinner on the first evening was perfect! We were fortunate to experience dinner in the boma on two nights during our four night stay. What a way to end an adrenalin-filled day!
One of the utmost highlights of our visit was the "surprise" lunch in the treetops deck. To be just the two of us, alone for a time, with a gourmet lunch, the river below, the bush and the elephants was overwhelming!!! To be afforded this opportunity made us feel so very special.
Our hut exceeded our expectations in every respect as well.
Time passed too quickly for us, and we are going back. Londolozi Tree Camp experience 2013 is etched in our memory forever. Thank you.
Marg and Dick, Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia.
