I love this post, Liam! The soccer field is one of my favourite spots to watch the sun go down, and while I might not enjoy running around on it, I love what it represents to this community. Thank you for a great post.

I really enjoyed this blog post. My husband and I lived in Cote d’Ivoire for 3 1/2 years, and we were able to travel to South Africa. Soccer (Futbal in francophone west Africa) is universal, as are other sports. We witnessed many games played on less than perfect fields, and the enjoyment of the players, whether rivals or teammates, was so open for all to share.
I hope to visit Londolozi on a future trip. We’ve been to Kruger and Madikwe reserve, but Londolozi seems special.
Cheers, Betsy

Great Blog Liam, this patch of ground has special memories for me as it is where I played my last game of rugby with my two sons just as my father did 30 years ago. However I may be tempted for another try at New Year, such is the feeling of an old rugby player who can never hang up his boots. I can still recall James taking an outrageous dummy and scoring.

Great post Liam, fantastic to see how sport continues to be a unifier of people and communities
