Bronwyn, I loved all the photos🤗

I like everything you write in this article. If our trip to Londolozi is permitted in September, I will ask for trial of this experience. Ps: any news from the Tsalala pride?

A great way of relaxing and enjoying nature

With 15 0r 20 inches of snow on the ground, this sounds wonderful!


Waiting to be able to visit Londolozi I’ll make a forest bathing here thanks for the lovely images and blog

It sure is the best medicine of all, to just take in all the positives that earth, bush, nature gives us. To beable to just walk outside and smell the clean Londolozi air, reach up and touch those magnificent old age trees would be an life long experience for me. We have a few big trees in our yard and we love to sit outside and just look at the different colours of green from the various trees. Listern to the different bird calls. To sit peacefully for a while and relax, taking in every breath of fresh air, releases my headache, and axiety. Antidote for the stress and unforeseen.

Thank you for the reminder to slow down, look, smell, touch – be in the nature that surrounds us without wishing we were someplace else. It’s raining now, but I can walk out the back door later, cross the terrace to the 85’ tall redwood tree, touch the rough bark whilst inhaling the fresh scent of wet wood whilst standing under its green canopy. I’m looking forward to refreshing my senses in the African desert, veld and forests soon, but today I’m here, healthy, happy- anticipating my own nature reunion.

The bush is definitely still the best healer, does not matter what the problem is. To take in the sounds and noises is just something in it’s own league.

Breathing in nature, what a way to spend a day.

Thanks Bronwyn! Beautiful images and thoughts. Just reading the poem took us to a relaxed place. We can’t wait to have a reunion with your world on our next visit!

Beautiful put Bronwyn, I just had to share it with all my tree hugging friends 💗💗🙏🏻

Thank you for the extremely valuable reminder that going in to nature, without distractions, is a direct path back to reintegration!

What a beautiful way to relax with forest bathing. But this can be anywhere.
