What a wonderful story. When we visited Londo in June 2016 we met “Jennifer” and she chased our vehicle for more than 30 minutes. When we heard she had a mate we were thrilled….then came the “little ones” we were overjoyed. We can’t wait to return next year to meet the whole family.

I too always look for the ostriches, sadly we don’t know what happened to the second male?

My son Miles and I were on the drive with Alfred the day the first male was seen by Shadrach. It was the experience of a lifetime. We saw the female miles away layer that day and so glad they found each other.

Sometimes Mother Nature surprises us with unlikely happy endings. Love the drawing of the ostrich family. Did someone there produce it?

Thank you for the most heart touching valentines message. You have spread the love. Just can’t get enough of these ostrich updates, and may they stay safe and together for another year. They have so many people praying for their survival.

I followed the link to this post from James’s bird post! I had no idea that that female was on Londolozi for so long before she had the chicks! Haven’t seen any posts about the chicks’ reaching maturity yet, are they still on the Reserve? That message ‘love is worth the wait’ is really powerful, really needed that right now, thanks so much!!
