on A Walk Down the Manyeleti River

How wonderful to see James Tyrrell once again out for a bush walk with you fortunate rangers who had a day free from guiding. I can’t think of anything better than a group of friends out for some good times and the promise of a jaffle stop along the way. I had the good fortune of two brunches provided for me during my last trip, but my favorite was the jaffle brunch prepared by James Souchon, complete with Bloody Mary’s in the Maxabene Riverbed. Our special grilled sandwich was a Caprese, but your bacon, cheese, caramelized onions, chutney, and pepper combination could be a new “must try” – just need a jaffle maker!!

Sounds like the perfect day with friends!

Walking in the bush is one of the best things you can do. Love it.
And a nice bush breakfast after such a walk is the cherry on the cake.

Is it possible? Please, please tell us that James is back at Londolozi . . . for good! All the best to all of Londolozi from Arizona, USA.

That walk down the river looks like so much fun, interesting sighting of everything so up and close. Look at the little barn swallow and tortoise that you would of missed riding the the Land Rover. Oh the Alumni Ranger James Tyrrell that everyone loved so much with his humorous sayings, who can forget that incredible Ranger. You are so privileged to be in the open there on foot , having the experience of eating the famous Jaffels. I am sure it is also dangerous being there on foot, but the exhilaration experience can not be bought, only experienced one on one.

Lovely! “Your ” barn swallows will become “our ” barn swallows in a few months… so nice to observe one of them that close. Here they typically nest in stables under the roof

Sounds like a great day and now I’m craving a Jaffel sandwich….

Keagan, it sounds like a lot of fun was had by all.

Now I’m hungry. For a bush walk. And, a jaffle!

Will make the request for a similar experience when we visit in August!

Great to see James, and firing up the sandwich press tonight in your honor Keagan!

Walking in a riverbed is special. Having good friend is even more and enjoying a jaffle (we call them boepensbroodjies) creates memories.
