Good for you Dan to take a free afternoon and just go out and explore, with no agenda. You’re never at a loss for experiencing all that nature provides within the property. Your images are very special, especially those taken at sunset so thanks for including.

Thank you Dan! I am such a big fan of just sitting sometimes and observing and “taking it all in”. Beautiful photos!

What a way to relax and enjoy nature!

You are so fortunate. You wrote: Sitting in complete silence, listening, smelling and savouring what nature had to offer is what Africa is all about, for me.

Every guest should know those words and enjoy the entire experience; I have and I look forward to my return to Londolozi.

Hello, I know I’m a bit out of the main theme, but last night I watched a wonderful documentary, Hippo King in Luangwa, absolutely a treasure, they are among my favourite animals and watching a hippo life from his birth to his death was fantastic. He had a very important relationship (mutual) with the imposing sausage tree and other animals, he had to face the draught and predators… then funny scenes like the encounter with elephants, a leopard he decided to follow for a while.. a superb music and direction make this a must to see. I look forward to reading news on hippos in Londolozi

Afternoon well spent Dan. Your images are awesome and the colors are stunning of the sunsets with the buffalo’s in the foreground. I see there are quite a few calves as well. Solidarity and serenity is all a person needs in the bush.

What a great day. Sure beats running errands in the suburbs! 😊

Your posts always have such depth and thoughtfulness in them. I appreciate the journeys that you take us on every time. This was a lovely afternoon spent with you 🙂 Thank you!

All of you at Londolozi really do have the most wonderful place to work at.
I envy you all that you can just take a car during a free day or half day and venture out into the bush and sit with the animals as long as you want.
Beautiful photos, Dan

Taking an afternoon to enjoy and explore is so rewarding. Thanks for sharing.

Great post Dan, and thank you for the intimate look into you private time at Londolozi! Albeit rare, it seems like a beautiful experience!
