This is a blessing you are protectors of a unique nature! I wonder how much of Africa’s and world’s nature has disappeared recently. Your case is the opposite

Congratulations on the milestone of the first 500 TWIPs. They have kept the spirit of our previous visits alive while driving up the anticipation for our next visit-beginning next Wednesday.
Impressive assortment (how many times have I said that?) of introductory photos highlighted by Guy’s lion/elephant image followed by Sean’s capture of the expressive look on the male lion’s face.

Congratulation on your 500 TWIP.
It is really fantastic that people from all over the world can enjoy the wonders of the African bush and the amazing world of animals every day at home. Of course, it is still even more fantastic if one can go on a safari and enjoy the real thing.
However, not everybody can do this at least not all the time. I envy the people, staff, guides who live in the bush and have this pleasure most of the year. So it is wonderful to have your blogs. Thanks so much!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you, Christa, it certainly is a privilege to live and work here permanently.

Congratulations on your mile stone of 500 TWIP. The video you put together was fantastic. Epic guys, just epic.

Thank you Linda

That picture of the lions and the elephants – maybe I have been watching too many “Avengers” movies, but somehow, I imagine an unlikely alliance as they go to face a sinister foe together!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you, Michael, that pic does give off that feeling.

Michael Fleetwood

Congratulations Londolozi! Can’t wait for the next 500! Thanks to James, Talley, Dean, Sean. James S., Grant, and so many more for your amazing photos that have helped many of us keep up to date on the many animals so many find enchanting and captivating!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you, Michael.

Epic storytelling at its best in your 500th TWIP! From Guy’s opening landscape of the king and his friends to the final image in the outstanding video, I was totally mesmerized. It was great to see and listen to James share once again, and we miss him, but fortunately for us he’s left the Blog in extremely capable hands. Inasmuch as I would love to spend time there more often but distance and circumstances don’t permit, instead I visit vicariously each day via the blogs and virtual safaris. Cheers!!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much Denise. We look forward to having you back here again soon.

Wow guys, what an achievement! Thank you for sharing the amazing pictures that you do every week. I know it brings a smile to my face, and joy to my soul. Even though I can’t be there right now, seeing those heavenly photos each week is so uplifting. Thank you!

What a fantastic TWIP blog and slide show. Mind blowing pics of the animals and staff that make up the Londolozi family. James thanks for the narration – have to say I had a wee tear in my eyes at some points. Many thanks to all of you at Londolozi. Look forward to many more instalments.

Congratulations on reaching 500 TWIP! Watching the video was inspiring; so many amazing photos (bet that was a hard exercise to choose these).
This week I especially love the close up of the zebra by Dean – stunning.
Looking forward to the next 500!!

This video was just marvelous! I had tears in my eyes, and I haven’t even been to Londolozi. But I will be coming!! Only sorry I never got to meet James since I have long followed him in the blogs and always enjoyed his videos. But you are all wonderful and I hope to meet you one day soon.

Sean Zeederberg
