Beautiful writing and stunning images Alex. Winter in the bush is a special time. The best time to visit is in our experience each season. Or each month if it is possible. Each season has got its own charm and it is wonderful to see the difference. We love it year round.

The way you described a bushveld winter is just magical, and those photos are so spectacular! It’s stuff like this that makes me long for a chance to visit Londolozi (and I don’t care what time of year either!)

What a beautiful blog to read on Africa Day, bringing home how blessed we are and how majestic is our land! Thank you.

Well, your beautiful blog convinces me that winter is a special season. The foggy mornings and starlit nights are a photographer’s dream. So, how about late February or mid-March?

Hi Denise,
Also a fantastic season. Quite warm, but as its the end of summer we still have a lot of the migratory birds here and the bush is still green and lush after the rains.
