I have been reading these posts for some time and am always impressed, moved, and often astounded by the stories and the quality of the writing. Each writer captures so much more than just the recounting of sightings, and always gives food for thought. And the photos!!! …. each posting has photos that are “my favorite ever.” I really think the giraffe and rainbow should somehow be used in a national campaign to save Africa’s treasures –
it is one of those photos with depth of cultural meaning as well as being incredibly beautiful – the rainbow, symbol of hope, and the realization that Africa is the proverbial ark carrying the animals that must be saved from humankind’s (not a very true word sometimes) greed. The giraffe – not the most well-known victim of poaching, trophy-killing, and habitat loss, but still an animal at severe risk, as are so many of the lesser-publicized animals, birds, insects, plants. Your readers from far parts of the world, look back with gratitude at our times spent at Londolozi – gratitude for the personal experiences you shared with us, and unending gratitude for the work you are doing to ensure that Africa’s animals and communities have a bright future under the huge African sky.

Fabulous photos and stories to go with them really make feel in some way almost there.

Great Photo’s. Any possibility you could do a blog on the most beautiful area on the londolozi property? Would be great to see more of the property.

Yes the overwhelming choice is the Rainbow & the Giraffe & Impala Sunsets, but we can’t leave out the cute little face of the Vervet Monkey 🙂 Thank you once again

Really love viewing the different photos.
Of course my favourite is leopards, but am envious of the results and I try to do the same.
