Boyd Varty decides to walk around the full boundary of Londolozi (no mean feet), and shares with us his adventure as he takes on this mission with Londolozi’s General Manager, Duncan MacLarty, Digital Storyteller and Ranger James Tyrrell and Head Ranger, James Souchon. The reason for walking, describes Boyd, was the classic intention of masculinity, and a desire to challenge yourself. Boyd who is used to walking 25km, was a bit anxious about doing double that on this particular boundary walk (equating to 31 miles).
This group of four men, were both good walkers and good talkers and so many stories were shared over this time period. It is said that talking while walking leads to much deeper conservations and this was true for these four. It was the groups job to lift the individuals no matter how sore you felt. There is something wild and both mentally restful about being on your feet, describes Boyd. Listen as Boyd walks through different sceneries and passes various wildlife, including the Nstevu Pride of lions… Their day had been about walking, but in truth their day had been about so much more, listen below for some classic African storytelling:

It has now been scientifically proven that Soundscapes play a huge role in stress levels and health of body. Safari is an incredible way to engage with natural soundscapes and to reset your circadian rhythm. These are often reasons people find themselves wanting to return to Africa without even knowing why. Fire light and storytelling are two of the ancient wisdoms we all need to reconnect with. Our inwards safaris (wellness challenges) has received incredible feedback and so we have decided to launch the Londolozi Echoes of Africa Sound Cloud Playlists, which will be updated with a beautiful compilation of guided meditations, breathwork sessions, nature soundscapes and a few original African stories for you to enjoy wherever you, at any time.
With the launch of both of our Wellness Challenges we have managed to stack up a beautiful compilation of meditations and breathworks. It occurred to us that many of you might enjoy meditative playlists, breathwork playlists and the introduction of an African storytelling playlist.
