It’s difficult to put into words the experience but your words and these photos do a good job. I am forever changed by this experience and I know I will return again and again to this amazing place. Thanks to all for putting this together.

So Beautiful! This reminds me of how much I miss Londolozi. I was so blessed to visit two years in a row and hope to go back yet again somehow, sometime. Much love to you all.

I am reading about many of you and Londolozi in Martha`s latest book. I am a trauma counsellor in Johannesburg and by Martha`s definition a wayfinder. I understand that the STAR adventures support the impoverished community surrounding Londolozi. In the book, I have read how you have asked for help through Oneness. Please may I help. I have only my counselling skills to offer.

Beautifully written Boyd and so true – it was an honour to be on the “outskirts” serving food and listening to the very many wise words and thoughts shared. Thank you.

Ahhhh … I know those tears. Never before have I felt such a connection with animals, nor experienced such soul stirring beauty. The heart of Londolozi is now carried in my own … and my life is forever changed. The messages you imparted as we tracked on foot now lead me on my journey in life. My intent is to share your vision of restoration with others and give back in some small way. Thank you Boyd and Bronwyn, Martha Beck, the beautiful Londolozi family, and most of all the animals. I am deeply grateful … and cannot wait to return!

Would like to know the song and singer in accompanying the video…. Love the words and the music, would like to purchase the song, so I could listen and have it touch my heart… Thank you!

Hi Bruce! I asked Phyllis that same question…Here is her response: The song is called Get Back to Serenity from a band called VARGO- the whole album is great!

I too would like to purchase it 🙂 Enjoy!

Thanks so much Pia for finding out and asking Phyllis for me… I was at Londolozi in Sept 2005, my favorite animal was Maxabene, and I have lots of beautiful images of her… I am going to show some on my photo blog soon, as I am going to write up a post. She was in her prime then, and such a beautiful leopard… I really thought that her spirit was powerful and serene at the same time. I felt a great connection with her; I am glad she is still going strong….

Hi Boyd!!
Thank you for this thoughtful explanation of our experience. I have had so many ask me about my trip and I have struggled to put it into words. I will just point them in the direction of this beautiful article, and let the rest speak for itself.
Still having Londo withdrawals…. what is the remedy?
Love and Admiration,
Connie
