The Valentines Rush

by on February 9, 2011

in Life

In Italy, Valentines Day was once celebrated as a Spring Festival, held in the open air, where young people would gather in tree arbors to listen to music and the reading of poetry. However, over the years, this custom has consistently failed to infiltrate the Londolozi ranging team and as such the lead up to Valentines Day is very different here in the African Wilderness.

The stakes are high, the girl is beautiful and yet there always seems to be just one rose to give. The results are nothing short of cataclysmic for everyone involved…

As in the tradition of Valentines Day, we present the Londolozi Valentines Day Video 2011 for your entertainment…

If you enjoyed this video, please be sure to share it with others who you think might also.

    I may have made a msitake in my career choice in not becoming a game ranger but at least I am not going to make a mistake of where to be next year on february 14!
    thank you – and well done.
    wonderfully refreshing in a world of saccharine and suspicion.

    That comment with the video made me laugh so much, that I got the entire office linked to the site to watch the rugby like attacks on other rangers and then the lovely green dress gets a heavy shove, was just the best ending. Excellent Londolozi!!!!!!!!!!!

      Lyn, I am so pleased you got such a laugh out of it, thanks for sharing with the entire office. Hope they enjoyed it as much as you did. Have a wonderful day filled with much love, roses and possibly a few rangers thrown in there…. xoxo
