Great photos – but that Hosana shot is etched in my mind! It is like an oil painting!

Well expressed, Pete… Nature has much to teach us. Too many in our world today look away, too many do not value what nature offers, too many are just unaware. It up to the rest of us, who know to educate the others and Londolozi is doing its part. We just need more voices to affect change and make a better world.

Exceptionally moving Pete. Your post was filled with truthful wisdom along with perfect images. And yes, nature will always be in perfect harmony. Around the world….praying man doesn’t destroy the land and disrupt that harmony.

Hi Pete
Great write up and some very interesting points. I believe that these are among the key points that guides and conservationists should be ‘teaching’ our guests. While most will know why they come to the bush, there is nothing quite like a subtle reminder, using examples while out on game drive. Your pictures are perfect and represent the ‘uncomplicated’ way that nature takes its course, well done. Very inspiring and a pleasure to read. Cheers from the other side of the Sands!

Great insights and perspectives, Peter!
I just completed reading Boyd Varty’s latest book, The Lion Tracker’s Guide to Life. He shares similar observations and relates them to our everyday existence.
