Best of luck Adam. Been great reading your posts for Londolozi as well as to going out on game drives with you when we visited a few years ago – was a wonderful experience and we thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality.

Good luck to you in your future endeavors.

I’ve only seen Londolozi through the camera and words of you and the rest of the staff at Londolozi yet because of this great blog I have felt like I was there in person. I thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with us and hope that will continue with wherever you end up in the future.

Adam, very few people will truly understand the mix of emotions you are going through. Londoz gets into your soul. Thanks a mill for all the blog posts and all the best for what the future holds for you.

The only thing that made this farewell tolerable (almost tolerable) is having the pleasure of seeing some of your favorite memories. Best of luck in whatever life has in store for you.

Sad to see you go but I’m am sure your next chapter will be just as exciting. Has been an absolute pleasure working with and I am sure we will see you back here soon.

We were privileged to have come to Londolozi last year as a 50th birthday surprise and lucky to have had you and Solly to be our Ranger and Tracker. I will miss your blogs like many others but am so fortunate to have my first hand memories and photographs to relive my experiences.

For me my personal favourites with you were our mad off road journey (some of which I videoed) to see the 2 Mapogo at the giraffe kill with the watching leopard, our Majingilane sightings and your stories about them (I love the lions best too) my walk in the bush with Paul, you and Solly enjoying the little creatures, (so special), our silent 15 minutes on our first night on the runway with Janet in her “net outfit” listening to the bush and watching the stars (emotional and indescribable) and the morning we sat in the jeep with you in the river bed as Camp Pan walked up to us stopped, looked up then carried on and we could hear his footprints in the sand as he walked (a life’s magical moment).

Whatever you will be doing Adam and wherever you may go good luck

Carpe Diem x

Go well Adam, your blog was fantastic and was a welcome break during the dreary Joburg work day.

Is your father Anthony Bannister? One of my first wildlife books I got as a young boy was done by him:)

Cheers
