A beautiful article Amy. Mother Nature is amazing. You have the prayers of many that you get the much needed rain. In the natural order of life there are many trials and tribulations, however, these are things that only make us all that much stronger and help us appreciate what we are blessed with. What a beautiful spot is Londolozi and what amazing people you are. Thank you.

Thank you for this thoughtful piece. The world seems to be overwhelmed by conflict and upheaval these days. The unthinkable is happening all around us. Climatic changes are impacting politics around the world. Hopefully, we will soon begin to recognize and act in order to preserve our natural resources and the rich diversity that we all love.

Thank you Catherine! It’s true but I think it’s also really heart warming to see countless examples of people making positive change despite the trying circumstances. I think from this place of positivity, the shifts we can make together will be all the more profound 🙂

Thank you Amy for the beautiful words and for updating us on what’s happening in Londolozi. I’m still worried about the white rhinos, that already have to endure the poachers, now also have to face starvation. Boots On The Ground is starting to make what they call “feed drives” and asking for help on their Instagram page.

Wonderful words, superb pictures. You have a knack for writing. Keep it going.
Peter Matthiessen’s “The Tree Where Man was Born” is one of my favourite books. He was a wonderful writer, wasn’t he?
