Thank you Boyd, for the great blog. South Africa is such a beautiful country, with so many wonderful things to see and do. The highlight of our time there was definitely staying at Londolozi. It is just the most beautiful place on Earth and we can’t wait to return! I also want to congratulate you on your book ‘Cathedral of the Wild’. It is, without a doubt, the best book I have had the pleasure of reading in many years….I laughed (out loud on the chapter of the royal visit), I cried, and in the end came away with a feeling of complete joy. What a well written, beautiful story.

Boyd, I just finished your book “Cathedral of the Wild”, it was wonderful! I couldn’t put it down. I look forward to reading more about your adventures so please don’t stop writing, your humor and view on life is enchanting.

So far I haven’t found anything in South Africa that I haven’t loved, but Londolozi is still #1. We will be back in August and can’t wait.

Am reading Cathedral of the Wild at the moment. Between Boyd and the Blog, my need for an African fix is satisfied each day!!! Thanks for all of it!

Congratulations on your book Boyd, I look forward to reading it soon! Also, a beautiful blog, and while we’ve enjoyed so much of what you list here, reading it leaves me wanting more, and more, and more! Thank you for a great blog!

Great choices here, Boyd, from a country filled with choice. I’m especially pleased that you featured Cape Town, Lion’s Head, the Winelands and great whites – all from my neck of the woods. I’m a huge Kruger and Kgalagadi enthusiast and would love to get a chance to visit Londolozi one day, but for now Londolozi’s YouTube channel keeps me fuelled.

Absolutely wonderful blog! Very impressive! I am more than excited to make the trip to Cape Town, South Africa, and hopefully visit Londolozi during my trip!

Just finished reading your book “Cathedral of the Wild”. I really enjoyed it.
We usually visit Kruger every two years, but maybe a side trip to Londolozi would be great.
We live in Vancouver, Canada (I’m originally from Finland) and we’ll gladly put up with the long flights to come to your beautiful country.
