on Evidence That Nature Makes Us Kinder

I really enjoyed reading today’s blog, Amy. The photos are beautiful.

Thanks Chuck!


Hello Amy, I can tell you that being in Africa on safari makes me a happy person and certainly makes me feel humble . But to generalise all this is, like a lot of these kind of studies , a bit dangerous .Even if some people react the same , a lot will react completely different and they need the city for instance or they get nervous! …Even our own children are not attracted to nature and they went with us on safari to show them how great it is !

Absolutely Dina! Agreed. It is just interesting to see that there is some scientific evidence to back up the feeling so many of us get in nature. Hope that being on safari helped to sway your children a bit. Thanks, Amy


So true Amy. Nice blog. Animals and nature have a very calming influence on our psych. It rubs off on others.

Thank you for this beautifully written article. I am never more serene & happy than when I am on a game drive.


Amy ! First of all , your photography is amazing and your love of Londolozi is witnessed in all you do .
This article truly touched me as I know in myself how being in nature and mostly with animals ; how my heart and soul expands . It is all about the”AWE” factor that we ALL need more of . I feel no guilt and I’ll hopefully get to meet you next week!

Hi Diane! So glad to hear it! Look forward to meeting you soon and wishing you a trip filled with awe 🙂 Best, Amy

The pictures in this article, especially the landscapes and the ones with the elephants, are some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen and really do install a sense of peace and wonder in me every time I see them and others like them. But obviously that sense of peace is heightened tenfold whenever I’m actually out in nature in person!
