Our Londolozi airstrip, a place where many of our guests’ safari experience begins upon their arrival, is situated within minutes from our camps. From the moment guests step off the plane, there is an immense sense of excitement for what’s to come.
With some recent guests, on our first-afternoon game drive, we got to witness an incredible sighting of lions mating on our Londolozi Airstrip.
As explained in another blog, when a pair of lions unite ready to mate, they will remain together for a period of three to five days, initially mating every 15-20min with rest intervals increasing as the days go on. In this particular sighting on the airstrip, we sat with these animals for over an hour and luckily got to watch them mate three times. Sitting at the airstrip witnessing these majestic animals on the tarmac and watching the afternoon light start to fade was something very unique.
The Memorable Moments!
So it got me thinking about what other memorable sightings the Londolozi team has had at the airstrip, and boy oh boy have we witnessed some remarkable sightings recently! I hope you enjoy this collection of images below…
So if you happen to land at our airstrip on your next visit, who knows what magic we’ll get to witness right behind camp during your stay!
