Lovely blog Josephine. It is realy not about the big 5. It is all about the little things. It is so much more fascinating. To me it is the overall bush experience. Interesting facts about rhino’s.

It is so interesting how all of nature works to try to protect itself and flourish…down to the tiny tadpole. So much can be learned from the slow observation and I appreciate all the insights you shared in this blog.

What a joyous walk in the bush you had – so much of interest and such a privilege with a knowledgeable Tracker. It’s like walking with a story book!

I always feel so alive whenever I’m walking through the bush, it’s an experience that never loses its magic.

Hello Ms. Jo,

Lovely Blog Post. My daughter Grace still talks about the amazing adventures that she had with you last fall. You made such an impression on her that her primary teacher commented that she was a “changed” child. Please keep up the good work…hope that you received our photo from the wedding.
