David! These are amazing. A few shots most guides will never be lucky enough to get.
Looking forward to weeks two and three!

Well done bud. I can tell you that you will be missed out in the field. You added much to Londolozi and touched the hearts of countless guests. Your photography is wonderful. If you are as good at accounting as you are with photography then Londolozi’s books are in safe hands. Good luck with this next episode.

What a great idea!!! The best part is you are staying with the Londolozi family!
One thing I DONT agree with is… there is a little publication called the “Wall Street Journal” lets just say it has quite a few followers ….I feel that your “Bush Street Journal” could get the same kind of follow ship 😉 anyway as you know I am a FAN!

Thank you for sharing your journey with us.. What a special gift to live in the bush. These pictures serve to remind us how very special this corner of Africa is. We look forward to following the “Blog From The Finance Office”. Good luck in your new position.

Wonderful photographs, can’t wait for the 2010 set. You really must be into numbers young man (or not into early mornings!) – Your shot of the giraffe is WONDERFUL and should be released universally to make the whole world smile! All the best for the future, be happy.

So sorry you are leaving THIS aspect of Londolozi, and whoever takes your ‘spot’ certainly has large shoes to fill! However, so glad to hear you aren’t leaving, just continuing on the same path, in a different way. Life is like that…glad you chose this ‘fork in the road’ and stayed on it!
Congratulations in your new post…looking forward to all future ‘posts’ from the office! 🙂
Best of luck! You are an awesome ‘web’guide, by the way!

What exciting adventures you had your first year. The photos are fantastic. Looking forward to reading about your next years. Good luck in your new position and I think any blog from the bush will be well received! Thanks for sharing.

Great photography David! Was the sunrise photo just that small? if it isn’t would you mind uploading it to Photo Sharing services in all its glory? Thanks in advance.

The Vomba female was beautiful even as such a small cub 🙂 And that shot of the Ellie and its mom is unbelievable. A wonderful story, and I hope we will still here from you every now and then from the Finance office. Your blogs have always been a pleasure to read. I have just finished a four year honours degree at UCT in Business Science Marketing. But have a FGASA Level 1 and am looking for a job in the bush – I wonder how my path will end up 🙂 Whether on landies with a group of guests or doing my marketing thing – I know it will be in the bush 🙂 Thanks again, and good luck behind that desk!
