Wonderful work done by the GWF. Education is key. It is lovely to see that more South Africans are experiencing our beautiful country and the wild places.

I have such great respect for Londolozi and their team. It is so much more than just a (fantastic) vacation destination – but a philosophy, a goal for the betterment of the people, animals and environment of SA and a vision into what a harmonious reality looks like for the earth. Can’t wait to return.

Loved reading that roundup!! Really great to hear that the Kruger to Canyons Corridor is closer to reality, would be incredible if wildlife could once again migrate between the lowveld and the highlands! Are there are certain areas that have been identified for inclusion in the network?

Thank you Dave for a great overview of 2017. The great work you describe . . . plus a lot more . . . is the reason that Vivian and I continue to return to Londolozi every year.

I think that staying at Londolozi coupled with the sympathetic guiding was the best experience I have had in Africa.

One man, one family, one group of people sharing a vision becomes powerful enough to change the world. Inspiration and hope. We look forward to experiencing the spirit of Londolozi first hand in 2018 and continuing to support GWF.

Bravo Londolozi for taking the lead in not only animal conservation but also to the development of young minds. Our future is going to be determined by these young adults, consequently all learning tools available will justify the means. I look forward to visiting your amazing Reserve in the not too distant future but in the meantime, cheers to a very happy holiday season.

I loved your book and wanted to know more about you and Londolozi. That brought me to your blog which I am enjoying very much. I hope all your continuing efforts for wildlife and people will have great success in the new year.

We love your vision for the future, Dave, both in conservation and education. That vision and your enthusiasm permeate the Londolozi environment, making it the special place it is. While the journey from San Francisco is a long one, we so look forward to our visits and will see you again in 2018. Happy Holidays to the whole Londolozi family!


how wonderful to read your roundup of 2017, and especially to learn that your vision of an elephant corridor may finally be coming to fruition. This is so exciting! a huge well done for your passion, vision and tireless efforts. much love for the year ahead, Fields
