Shannon, thank you for sharing these life lessons. Being present to experience all around you is a true gift,

Thank you, William.

The wilderness gives us so much and I am very grateful for it. Safaris at Londolozi are something I am looking forward to all year round.

How wonderful to hear Christa – we are looking forward to welcoming you back in the future!

Shannon nature has such a calming effect on people, just being outside, breathing in the clean fresh air makes a huge difference in your mind and body. Appreciate every single moment you are away from the internet, hussel and bussel of everyday things. Full your mind with beautiful scenery you have before you, listen to every sound in the bush and try and remember it, so you can recall it when you reminiscent of your visit in the wild. Your eyes must be like a camera taking fotos of everything you see, your mind must be SD card where you can recall all you have seen at any time you just want to relax.

What beautiful words, Valmai. I couldn’t agree with you more, it is crucial to embrace your surroundings and be present in the moment.

Shannon, what a beautiful expression of gratitude that you’ve shared with us and all the lessons you’ve learned since becoming a member of the community. Your Londolozi effect I believe, is shared by many of us during our visits. After thinking about your blog, I believe the best souvenirs we can take away from a visit to Londolozi are the same lessons you live each day. Thank you for sharing your story.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Denise. Londolozi teaches us all new things each and every day – we are so lucky!
