Oh Alistair this is sad news as your images always made me long for the bush & its offerings! Your video is outstanding & yes as I may have said before your pictures are really stunning & I hope that we “us” bloggers will be able to keep track of your gems in the future?? Thank you. Good luck & safe travels 🙂

Looking forward to seein what the future holds for you. It definetly seems like you had an absolutely exceptional range of experiences at Londolozi, some of them defying belief!!
