Kyle, thank you for the introduction to the excitement of safari. I sounds like a most exhilarating experience.

We never did find those elusive wild dogs last time (despite your best efforts Kyle!) but your words bring back all the amazing feelings and memories of the wonderful Londolozi. K

Kyle, having just returned recently from Londolozi, we must complement you because your description of the initial experience is right on! For us, one of the most exciting things is landing on the airstrip and seeing the lineup of Rangers and Trackers waiting for us. We know the adventure has begun! There is no better guiding team in Africa than your team. I feel lucky that we’ve had that experience multiple times. Hope to see you on our next visit!

Wow, your vivid descriptions of what could be one’s first game drive at Londolozi ignited memories of my first drive at Londolozi when we encountered the Tortoise Pan male. Since then, it just continues to be better and better and those ice cold G&T’s are the best!

Thank you so much Kyle! While I’ve yet to experience Londolozi in person, it is on our bucket list! And I’m with you on the wild dogs – just super exciting and chaotic, in the best way!!

My goodness Kyle,the adrenaline is pumping and everything happens so fast out there. The wild does not wait and you have to be ready for anything out there. Well described Kyle and full of energie. What happened to yesterday’s fotos and email for the 11 Sept.

What beautiful, descriptive writing Kyle. This is exactly how I felt during our wild dog sighting. It was impossible not to be completely present with all of the emotions and sensations at once.

And then, when it’s time to leave, no matter how many days you have stayed at Londolozi, you hug your ranger and tracker as hard as you can as you prepare to board the airplane, because they have become family in the time you have shared together. And as you throttle down the runway, waving to them – them waving to you, you feel the tears come, knowing you have left a piece of your heart and soul at Londolozi, already anxious for your return.
