I had the pleasure of meeting Life. He had to get me to the airport on time. Exactly at the same time South Africa were playing Rugby against England. We both agreed the Rugby was very important and we “flew” to the airport to ensure the match was not missed. As we all know South Africa won and went on to win overall. Great personality and good fun.

Hi Susan, I’m glad Life managed to get you to the airport on time, and that you managed to watch the game. I completely agree with you, I am very privileged to spend so much time with such a great man.

It must be really so exciting to start as a young guide at Londolozi and it is great that you can benefit from Life’s knowledge and experience in the bush. 20 years of experience. It would be interesting to know what Life has seen and heard and experienced and what his best adventure with animals was.

Always happy to wear my Springboks jersey! We were there for the unfortunate loss to the All Blacks in 2015.

We certainly picked the right game to go to, it was so special to share that experience with him.
