Today we honour all who have been on this 12-year journey with us, every blog contributor, guide, editor, and Londolozi guest. We are here today because of all of you!
The Londolozi Blog, famed for its “The Week in Pictures”, hits a huge milestone today as we reach our 500th TWIP.
The early origins of the Londolozi Blog, like many creative innovations, seem to be ordained by some higher synchronistic power when 12 years ago Boyd Varty and Rich Laburn both reached for the last cold beer in the cooler box at a party. Who could have known that this meeting would be the beginning of the development of the blueprint for how digital storytelling platforms could be powerful tools to connect people with the transformational energy of nature.
Long inspired by the combination of ancient wisdom, modern technology, and nature, Rich soon moved to Londolozi where his love of wilderness and technology found its expression in the creation of the Londolozi Blog with the clear intention to
“create a place that an online tribe of like-minded souls can come to reconnect their spirit back to the wilderness”.
Rich started the Blog with exactly zero followers but cultivated a team of passionate contributors, guides, trackers, guests, and anyone else in the Londolozi ecosystem who loved sharing stories. With the steady stream of stories, images, and videos emerging from the wilderness, the blog grew into what we now see and experience today.
The Leopards of Londolozi, Lion Pride sagas, photographic journals, wilderness wellness, simply sophisticated cuisine, South African wine insights, Good Work Foundation projects, and of course The Week In Pictures.
The Londolozi Blog is a daily window into moments from the African wilderness that we hope will connect you to your love of animals, mother nature, and this planet that we all share.
To every one of the Londolozi blog contributors, innovators, and storytellers – we honour the love and passion you have brought to sharing Londolozi s magic and media all over the world.
Thank you all.
Enjoy this celebration of the 500th TWIP…
