I visited Londolozi in 2015 and for the year before I went and ever since, I have made reading the Londolozi blog part of my daily routine. I look forward to the day that I return to Londolozi. Amy, you write so eloquently with so much knowledge and insight and I will truly miss your work. I hope you will continue to use these gifts in your future endeavors and wish you all the best. Thank you for brightening my day and teaching me so much about wildlife and myself.

Thank you Teresa. What fabulous words to be taking with me on this new journey. I hope your return to Londolozi comes soon. All my best!

Amy I have followed your blogs since Trev & Erin worked alongside you. Am sorry but I don’t remember if you were at Erins bachelorette but want to wish you Gods blessings on you for wherever you are headed but I believe there’s not too much that can beat the wonderful camaraderie and friends made at Londo’s. We will miss you…..

It’s true Alice, they’re friends that last a lifetime! Thank you for the kind words. Love to you and Trev and Erie too!

Amy, your blogs have been one of my favorite and most welcomed happenings in my e-mail box. truly. Such great images, wonderful stories and a terrific sense from you of belonging to what you were ensconced in. Godspeed to you and best wishes in everything you do. You will be missed.

A perfect story Amy!!! So sorry to hear that you’re leaving Londolozi, am going to miss all your posts!!

Lucie Easley
Senior Digital Ranger

I am fairly new to reading about Londolozi. I have read your blogs with wonder and appreciation. You have introduced me to so many new interests and seeing Londolozi, and nature, through your eyes calms the soul and gives me hope for the future. I am sad that you are leaving as I will miss your words, but as you move into your future, I wish you the very best. You will always make any wild place home. Safe travels.

Thank you Lucie! Such kind and re-assuring words to set off on this new journey with. Straight to the heart. I hope the blog continues to bring you many gifts. All my best. xxx

Callum Evans

Definetely one of my favourite posts! I can’t believe that the Nkoveni Female walked right past you while you were on the ground!! Had a brilliant leopard encounter barely three weeks ago in Mabuasehube when we found a leopard lying behind our showers 10 metres from us. He was completely unpeturbeb by our presence as we stood watching it! Still need a good leopard photo though!

How fabulous Callum. I know how much you were hoping for a special leopard encounter. That sounded magical!

Callum Evans
Guest contributor

It was so incredible (and we’d also seen lion and cheetah that same day too)! Plus I had an even more incredible sighting of my first ever wild dogs (a 30 strong pack) in Moremi!

Denise Vouri

Oh my, your final essay brought me to tears. Whilst I’ve never met you, through your words, I feel I know you. Your stories are inspiring, informative and fun to read. The decision to leave such a magical place could not have been easy, but whatever is in your future I hope gives you the same joy. Keep well and know you will be missed.

Thank you so much Denise, what a beautiful compliment. Your engagement and support on the blog has always been so appreciated! Wishing you everything of the best! xxx

Patricia Johnson

Amy, my friend, thank you for all the gifts you have share we me, one of them is your love of connecting with people, animals, and nature. I know we will connect again somewhere even if just in memories. Thanks and lot of love in your next adventure!

Thank you so much Pat. I’m so grateful for all the special moments I got to share with you. You’re a beautiful soul! Keep writing 🙂 So much love to you. xx

Robert Shelton

Amy, you are so spot on! We only spent 4 days at Londolozi in 2012 and it has called to us ever since. We have always felt connected to that spot because of people like you who, through your photographs and words, continually conveyed the richness of all that is Londolozi. This blog has always kept us enchanted and we will sorely miss your beautiful photographs and stories. Thank you. Thank you. Be well and God bless.

Thank you so much Robert! It’s so special to know that you have been reading and enjoying the blogs and that the wild is still making its way into your home from a distance. Wishing you continued enchantment…

Pam Chandor

Great farewell blog, Amy! Will miss you when we visit Londolozi in June. All the best to you!

Thank you Pam! I hope you have a magical stay!!

Jenn Anderson

Amy…thank you so much for every word & picture that you’ve contributed to these blog posts! They inspired me, moved me, & always stoked the longing in my heart to one day actually EXPERIENCE, rather than just read about, the magic of Londolozi. I was hoping to be able to say “thank you” face to face, but I guess this will have to suffice 🙂 I wish you all the best, and I’m confident that everything you do will continue to add beauty and a passion for wildness to a world so desperately in need of them! <3

Thank you so much Jenn, that really is such a beautiful message. I too hope that you make it to Londolozi some day soon. To have got such a strong sense of it through the blog means that it is a place that would truly touch you should you visit in the flesh! Keep seeking the wildness 🙂

Andy Johnson

Great post. Best of luck on your continuing adventure Amy. Robert Service…..nice!

Thank you Andy! So glad that I got to guide you again on your last trip. And yes, thank you for the wild inspiration 😉 Who knows, maybe see you States side on our next adventure!! Lots of love to you and Pat

What a wonderful, smart, funny, and talented girl you are! I am so lucky to have spend a few visits getting to know you. Your contribution to Londolozi and of course this blog is immeasurable. I will miss you on the blog, and you when I next visit Londolozi, but I wish you all the best and know you will be successful in all you do. Good luck you wonderful human!

Thank you so much Sam! What a beautiful message. I have loved connecting with you on all your trips and will miss seeing you. Trusting that our paths will cross again though. Hopefully around a Londolozi boma fire some day 🙂 xxx

Hi Amy, Although we have never met i have enjoyed reading your blogs. I will miss them. You really said it right. Londolozi is magic. I wish you all the best with whatever endeavor you choose.

Jill Larone

Amy, I will miss your beautiful blogs and incredible pictures. I wish you all the very best in this next journey in your life.

Thank you Jill. I’ve always appreciated your support and engagement on the blog. Much love

Ursula Jorch

Amy, I’ll never forget the solo game drive you took me on to the leadwood forest, where you showed me an abandoned leopard den and porcupine quills, and you persisted until you found a leopard…an amazing drive. Wishing you all the very best!

That was such a special drive Ursula – remember it like it was yesterday. True treasures! I’m so glad you remember it too! Much love
