Super article – the great joy of the bush is the sense of being part.
Best done without the sound of diesel engines

Bronwyn, I loved all the photos; especially the leopard in the tree🤗

For me, nature, the animals and plants, are about God speaking to everyone and everything if only we take the time to listen. Thank you for your insights Bronwyn.

Wonderful photo Sean!
It’s interesting how peaceful it is to sit quietly in the vehicle so close to an animal, observing small things about it.

Such an amazing childhood. I have visited once but will be back. After my visit I have thought daily about the experience. Thanks for sharing a small part of your life

We just have to stop…
Then they ‘talk’

How deep and beautiful Varty thank you! It is much needed in this time of uncertainty, more than ever. What about a Tree Wisdom Challenge too?

A wonderful article

Incredible post Bronwyn! So much natural wisdom in nature, beckoning us to return to our true selves. I adored the Animal Wisdom Challenge and gleaned a great deal from it. Is it possible to revisit it? It is truly brilliant, and like all great wisdom traditions, one can return with new eyes and open senses, gaining new challenges, learnings and insights. Thanks for this amazing post, and please let me know what you think of my request! Blessings!

Looking forward to the 7 day challenge 💕🙏🏻

May I use the picture of the elephant (#4) with my online ELA class? How should I credit the artist if it’s OK? TIA. Hamba Kahle.

What you said in your post today so resonated with me. I am following the Vedic teaching and that exactly what they teach. In a nutshell Ubuntu!

There is nothing in the world that beats nature at it’s best. The bush brings peace and tranquillity and the presence of all the different species of animals and birds, makes it absolutely precious. There is God and all His creation in one place, coming together to learn, watch and appreciate the wonders of God. Good story Bronwyn. You are so privileged to have been brought up at Londolozi, having the animals and birds near you all the time.

Beautifully written Bronwyn. It’s a wonderful reminder to open our senses to the power of animals around us, whether lions and elephants, or cats and dogs.
