Photography is a way of expression. It is a medium for story telling and it is an extremely important part of our job out here at Londolozi. There is something special about taking photographs and sharing them with friends, family, and hopefully, through this blog, some of the world. It allows us as individuals to relive the moment, remember the past and cherish the now. It also allows Guides to interact and reconnect with past guests and encourage future guests to come and share the magic.
This blog is for the new guys. Some new additions to our Londolozi Guiding team and it is also to show off some of their favourite photographs and highlights in their time here so far. This is a collection from 4 of our 6 new Guides. They were asked to put together 5 of their photographs and have the opportunity to share them here first. We hope you all enjoy them and we all look forward to seeing more of this magic on the blog in the future. Well done to them all on some amazing photos.
