On Friday we celebrated our one hundred and seventy-second Week in Pictures. It’s been over three years since this by now iconic part of the Londolozi Blog was launched and we felt it was time to start up another stalwart post series.
Introducing “Sunday Stories”.
While this won’t be as formal a series as TWIP, and will more than likely be a fortnightly offering, it will nevertheless be a regular feature in the future, and will allow rangers, trackers and other staff from Londolozi to share stories from their time in the bush.
Drama, comedy, tragedy… it is all to be found out here, and in this forum you will be able to read some of the Londolozi family’s often hilariously unorthodox takes on life in wild.
Did ranger Sean Creswell really see Lady Gaga’s face while looking at cloud shapes with his fellow trainees? What happened when Eckson Sibuyi got knocked off his tracker’s seat by a fleeing impala, straight into a pride of 15 hunting and hungry lions? How quickly does one’s sense of humour run dry when having to be pulled out of the mud by a tractor 11 times in 4 days? (very quickly!). Does Matt Evans really have a tattoo of the Dark-Maned Majingilane on his left bicep?
All this and more can be read in the Sunday Stories.
Leopards, laughter, loeries, Lucky Shabangu… the possibilities are endless.
So sign in next week for the first instalment of the Sunday Stories, to gain just a little more of a peek into what life is like out in the African bush.
