Luxury Family Safari to Londolozi, Jamala Madikwe & Jabulani

This family had a WOW time at three completely different but equally fabulous safari lodges in South Africa. First stop was Londolozi Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands where close up encounters with the Big Five are practically guaranteed! Then they flew across to the Madkiwe Game Reserve and love the ‘couch safari’ at Jamala! Finally at Camp Jabulani they loved everything especially the cheetah and elephant interactions.
