Magnificent video and article. Bravo! Each day your wonderful write-ups and photographs allow me, for a short time, to return to South Africa, to hear it, to smell it, to experience once again free wildlife. Thank you.

Denise Vouri

Wow! Thanks for such an amazing video that transported me back to such happy memories. I appreciate all the time the team put in to make this video. As an aside, if everyone could experience a safari, we wouldn’t have to work so hard to protect our animals and their environment, perhaps….

James Tyrrell
Alumni

I couldn’t agree more…

Mary Beth Wheeler
Guest contributor

400! What an extraordinary feat! Just the continuity, the consistency of the effort is, in itself, inspiring in today’s world of speed, disappearing messages and ever-changing approaches! Add to that the images, the stories, the massive effort – you are all to be praised and feted, James especially, for putting it altogether dah after day! Congratulations!

James Tyrrell
Alumni

Thanks Mary Beth, it’s very much a team effort though…

Joan Schmiidt

James, that’s a lot of hours in the bush. Glad you make it possible for all of us to enjoy🤗

James Tyrrell
Alumni

We like keeping people connected Joan 😉

Loved every minute of it. Every time you release a video it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up in the best way. Everything about Londolozi is world class, and it shows. Somehow even after following along in some capacity for years, I always forget TWIP is on Friday, so when it shows up in my inbox I get a happy surprise. Keep up the amazing work!

James Tyrrell
Alumni

Thanks Chelsea.
We’re already planning our 500th TWIP video… 😉

Andrew and Daniel Bolnick
Digital Tracker

Total enjoyment. Thanks to everyone. I will reply and hit the pause button many times. Great content. Londolozi is by far the #1 Safari Lodge. It provides an experience of mind and body like no other lodge. It’s the commitment to all that is possible. Thank you

James Tyrrell
Alumni

Thanks for the kind words!

Wendy Hawkins
Senior Digital Ranger

Oh my goodness me, I could have watched an hour of that, far too short!! Thank you & congratulations & I hope to be around for the next 400 🙂 been there since 73 🙂 Well done to you all

James Tyrrell
Alumni

HI Wendy.
Well there are 73 that are still up on the blog so you can easily back date and check them out…! 🙂

All we can say is WOW! What a great video and totally amazing images & video footage. We know how much you all agonize over the 100’s TWIP. We wonder who had the most images in this one???? 😉

James Tyrrell
Alumni

Haha Michael it was pretty random. I literally just went back through the last 100 weeks, picked all the standouts (there were over 450!!!) and then just slotted random ones in to the music. Probably three quarters of the 450 didn’t even make it. We’ll run another highlights post in the next week or two to try make up the difference…

Victoria Auchincloss
Digital Tracker

From the first we went on a safari at Londolozi, I was stunned, impressed and astonished! Not only was I stunned by the animals we met, how in the world do they track and drive and on top of that find their way around. They are stars!! Victoria

Bob and Lucie Fjeldstad
Guest contributor

Wonderful James, you are THE maestro at these recaps! Excellent choice of images & videos and perfectly sync’ed to the music!!!

James Tyrrell

Can’t believe it’s been running that long, like many others I remember when it began and look forward to it every Friday. As Duncan says, it keeps us connected , however many miles away we are. Thank you so much to all of you for giving us this wonderful connection.
