Time after time: classic photos, ingenious editing, clever story lines. How do you do it? And, just so you remember, we are all Africa, despite the kilometers that might separate us. We are all Africa.

I cant agree more!!! I absolutely love AFRICA! Thats why I wait to become a guide. The first time I visited Africa and stepped on the soil I was home. I have never ever had a feeling like it. My love affair for her has never wavered. My dream will be coming true this November. However Londolozi if you have any availability for an intern I would take you up on it. No I really mean it…..

Well done, guys. Even if it was hard to get you serious on camera. I certainly felt the greatest love and gratitude when I visited Africa.

Brought a tear to my eye – then left me laughing at the bloopers! Fun video! Thanks!

Beautiful, stunning and emotional video!! Even us who were not born in Africa, but have been to Africa, understand this emotion and great love for Africa.

Personally I’d rather take my chances with a 2.5 metre black mamba,a buffalo bull in a reed bed, an elephant in mutsh or those lions I had in my camp at Mabuasehube than face the girl I have a crush on at the moment!

That video was brilliant! Africa really is the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen, it’s where my heart is and I could never ever leave her! I’m suddenly dreading Valentines Day a little less now.

Another great video . . . particularly the outtakes.

Beautiful! And, the music too – who is it?

O period M period G period!!!!I wasn’t sure how you would top Jenny and the Ostriches…Brilliant

Well done James- and all the others! Speaks to my heart- found myself grinning like a Cheshire cat at my desk! Took me back home! Happy valentines day you big softies!

Excellent. Great way to start my morning!,

Have the remains of the old Tailles lioness been found?

Loved the video! Extremely artistically made. And, “She’s better than a unicorn because she’s real”! Haha!

YES – I totally agree! Africa……I love it too. I want to come back so much. Loved the clips at the end – so funny…..

What a wonderful video James!! The images are the essence of Africa, enticing those of us who don’t have the luxury of living there, to return once again and experience the love offered by your beautiful country.

Beautiful!! Love it, and the music. Can you tell me the title of the song? I have been trying to find it. It is so touching.
