An amazing experience Dean. It is a privilege to walk in mature and to reconnect. It is good for your soul.

Dean, what an incredible experience. We went on foot when we there 2014: such a humbling experience. We saw a hippo out of the water, so we hightailed it out of the sight of the hippo. It is such an experience to be walking where the animals roam.

Dean, sound like a great day

Love hearing the personal insights!
Great opportunity for you to be re-inspired!

Dean, Thanks for sharing your great adventure! We heard how hot it’s been which must have made it even tougher!

How fortunate you are to explore the beauty around you on foot- the perfect way to spend a day off. During my next trip there in March, I’d like to explore on foot if possible…….

Wonderful story Dean. It’s always interesting to hear about Rangers’ down time and also hear more about the diversity of environments at Londolozi. What an amazing opportunity you all have to live and walk in the wilds. I’m pretty confident that a number of us envy your ability to take such a walkabout and witness what you all did with your chums!

“It is always good to take the time to connect to the land” a wonderful comment and most appropriate for the days outing. The heat of the day combined with physical activity (walking) and the distance covered must have been exhausting. Hats off to you all and very glad you enjoyed it.

What a day to take a walk and thanks for letting us tag along!
