James had hardly touched a camera when he came to Londolozi, but his writing skills that complemented his Honours degree in Zoology meant that he was quickly snapped up by the Londolozi blog team. An environment rich in photographers helped him develop the ...

Superb ! I can imagine the hours that went into producing that

250 000, Mike… 😉

Stunning video. Amazing top quality pictures. I still remember the first week in pictures when Tally started it.

Almost seems like yesterday…

What a wonderful assembly of dedication and skill. Congratulations to all involved

Thanks Ian! When are you back for a visit?

Brilliant. Well done to all involved.

Thanks Keith. I’ll pass on your regards to the team!

Absolutely stunning!

Thanks Ivy!

Wonderful! – Its another wet Friday afternoon in the UK and TWIP always marks the start of the weekend. Looking forward to No. 500 already!!

So are we Gillian!

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.

Thanks Karen.
When are you coming for a proper visit?

13 May 2020 And can’t wait … 269 days 😉

Sure thing Doug. More toe come…

Phenomanal! Brought tears to my eyes.

Wow – Cherry on the Top of 400 x TWIP and thank you so much Londolozi!

You’re welcome Jennifer. The wonderful thing is TWIP will only continue from here. What’s next?!?!

Awesome pictures! Love the pangolin shot.

Xollins! That was indeed a special shot. Dean de la Rey for the win…!

Wow, what an incredible video! Thank you!

You’re welcome Judith. We’ll put out some more highlights pictures soon…

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….

I couldn’t agree more…

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!

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

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

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!

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

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

Thanks for the kind words!

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

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???? 😉

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…

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

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

Thanks guys. The real thanks must go to all the photo contributors though!

Stunning video. Thanks for all the hard work over the years!

Glad you liked it Marc!

WOW! – I regret that I can’t think of anything stronger to say than that! Just WOW!!

Glad you liked it Michael!

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.

You’re welcome Suzanne. Yip, 8 years! Hard to believe!

You’re welcome Suzanne! Keep checking in every Friday!

AMAZING!! And here’s to more Duns in future blogs ☺️

Thanks Susa. Haha we’ll get him in when we can!

A great blog and totally awesome video James. Congratulations to all of those involved with the incredibly beautiful pics. A great big thank you to all of you at Londolozi.

Thanks Leonie!
