Well done team on a fantastic tribute to Innocent’s trip from “hungry poacher” to “Custodian of our Wildlife”, you have managed to put the story across with such impact and empathy – well done! In these days conservation disasters, it is so nice to hear of a story like this.
Please relay my message to Innocent … Innocent well done on telling your story, it is fantastic that you have taken control and raised yourself from that hungry young man to a highly skilled tracker who is now a protector of our wildlife. Well done, my man – your father would have been so proud of you. I look forward to meeting you soon.

What a fantastic and inspiring story and so brave to tell it, we were lucky/honored to spend a couple of days with Innocent & Fin last December and hope to have them as our guide/tracker/friends again when we come back in July..

Innocent is an impressive young man! We enjoyed our time with Inno and Fin when we were at Londolozi in May. Africa is an amazing place and Londolozi is life changing! Amy, thank you for this wonderful story!

Thank you Amy and Innocent. What a beautifully told story and one that has such a resounding and powerful message.
Amy your bio does not do justice to you as a person; someone who has the ability to touch a person’s innermost being. Thank you again.

So beautifully told – thank you for sharing your story with us, Innocent. Lovely to hear that you reconnected with your father, sadly for such a short time, but how wonderful that you had that time together and that he helped you to see the path that would change the direction of your life. Truly an amazing story!

A Hunger for Life – Amy Attenborough your story about the life of Innocent Ngwenya is truly inspiring and the narrative and settings inspiring. I congratulate you, all the people involved in the filming of the videos as well as Innocent on a deed well done. I reached your blog following a link from a wonderful author friend of mine – Bianca Gubalke who lives in Africa and is equally close to nature – so I thank her too. I am from India and perhaps shall visiting Africa too one day. Thanks again
