A wonderful blog Amy! I read this with tears in my eyes! This is what makes Londolozi such a unique place! – the amazing bonds of friendship and trust between rangers and trackers! How lovely to see those photos of Life having the time of his life discovering Cape Town!

What a great story about the other side of Londolozi life….the people we meet when we visit. Jess was camp manager during our very trip to Londolozi.

Ranger…tracker…together make unbeatable pairs/friends. Aloha to Freddy/Callum/Talley (and ‘retired’ Mike Miller) for showing me these bonds.

Lovely article and friendship. It does remind me about my own daily life and location I take for granted too often and and the joy of sharing with and learning from others. This spirit is so evident at Londolozi.

Reminds me of my grade 9 teacher (std 7, back in the day) taught us, Respect goes a long way…… as friends, family and colleagues, that is why there is such an amazing bond of friendship between Rex and Life

How beautiful & moving a story this is, I am also shedding a tear as we take so much for granted that someone as special as Life was given the opportunity to see what is on the other side of the coin! Well done to Rex & Jess for inviting him & sharing their home with him <3

I believe it’s all in the eyes and Life’s eyes say it all. Unadulterated joy and it appears Rex is having a good time as well!!!! These times are never forgotten. Me – I’m just green!!. Fabulous to view these scenes. Congratulations.

Great piece! I had the pleasure to have this duo as my Ranger and Tracker during my honeymoon 6 years ago to this day. They couldn’t hide their special bond as brothers even if they wanted to. Great to see that Rex values his friendships as much as he does and continues to keep in touch with Life outside of the bush. Rex even cared enough to meet up with my wife and I while in NYC. Congrats Rex! Jen and I wish you many years of happiness and love.

Amy, thanks for doing this article. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall to see Life’s reactions to all these new foreign things that he was seeing. We as human beings take so much for granted in our lives. What an incredible couple Rex and Jess are and I hope their friendship with Life will endure. I too had tears in my eyes reading this. Thank you again for this beautiful story of friendship and love.

Oh this is just Wonderful!!!! My family had the incredible experience of Londolozi with Rex and Life! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I have a lot of favorites of Londolozi BUT Rex and Life touched my heart with their relationship and when they would look at each other with a smile. Thank you.

This is a brilliant article thanks Amy. When we visited Londolozi in November, we had the priveledge of having Life and Garrett as our team …… we realised then, that Life was a very special person ….. I am so happy that he had the Cape Town experience.
