Today we celebrate World Ranger Day, 24 hours each year in which we pay tribute to the men and women across the globe who dedicate their lives to protecting the world’s natural heritage. Londolozi’s rangers and trackers spend a great deal of their time and energy educating their guests and enjoying this piece of wilderness with them, and we want to thank them for the zeal they add to this team.
It must be said however that there are also heroes out here who are not and cannot be seen, photographed or known on social media. Teams that spend their days and nights physically protecting this land and its precious creatures, at a time when Africa’s wildlife is facing its greatest poaching threat in decades. Thank you to those men and women who put their lives on the line daily, proving how valuable these tracts of wildernesses and their inhabitants are.
To the rangers and trackers of Londolozi, past and present, thank you! This one is for you:
