Wow, what a wonderful, inspiring story. It’s taken 10 minutes to collect my thoughts… The concept of “live guided” and trusting your heart and the challenges that go with it comes through beautifully in the video. Congratulations Talley and thank you for sharing your story! Kudos to the media team for presenting such a wonderful video!

My first trip to Londolozi, Tally was my guide. She is one of the reasons I keep coming back to this magical place of people and animals. I was privilege to see the magnificent 7 my first two outings with Tally. Thank you Tally and Freddy, I hope to see you again in November.

Good for you, cousin. A truly lovely story.

What an amazing story and well produced video highlighting Talley’s change of course in her life. There are many of us in the world that set off on a course we believe is the correct one, only to realize that it can leave an empty feeling at the end of the day. It takes guts and bravery to let go of the comfortable known and seek that which will fill your heart with satisfaction and joy. It’s obvious she’s found and acted on her passion and kudos to her for going where few go in terms of a career. Thank you all for sharing her journey.

Great video. We all have something of Africa inside of us. You can never realy leave.

Beautifully done. Does Talley still do guiding?

Hi Jeff,
She does, although not as full time as she used to. Managing the field team takes up quite a bit of time as you can probably imagine!

Thank you for sharing and for following your heart. The video is so captivating as well. How many of us truly take that chance and follow our hearts. Bravo Tally for your perseverance Londolozi and all you work with are blessed to have you. If I truly followed my heart I would have done the same thing after my first visit but for now I’ll just keep coming back for my yearly visit

Thanks for sharing your story Talley. And ‘go you’ for the having the courage to follow your dreams!

Wow…so beautifully told Talley. I am also feeling that pull from life and South Africa; so curious to see each track emerge. And, I love that I saw my first leopard in the wild with you. #mashabalove

“To Live Guided is to follow that something inside of you that’s calling”…I will keep that statement close to heart; to keep focussing on our eventual return to Africa.

One incredibly heartwarming story. “Live guided’ has already started to teach me a number of things too.
