My default way of looking at the world is through a creative lens, so the beauty of wildlife and nature that surrounds me at Londolozi never fails to inspire and ignite my artistic side. The vibrant colours, captivating textures, and breathtaking landscapes create a visual wonderland.
In this blog, I want to take you on a visual journey, that showcases the colourful and creative essence of Londolozi’s wilderness—a living art gallery.
Colours of Nature:
While you may associate the African wilderness with neutral, muted tones, there are specks of bright colours all around. When I set out on a game drive, I take great joy in noticing the array of colours that the wilderness has to offer. The brightly coloured feathers of a lilac-breasted roller, the striking black and white pattern on a zebra’s coat, or the golden mane of a lion each contribute to a diverse palette of nature’s colours.
Patterns and Textures of the Wild:
When out on a safari, we often witness incredible sights, but we may not always take the time to truly ‘see’ them. I encourage you to pause and truly observe, uncovering the extraordinary beauty in the every day—textures, colours, and details that often go unnoticed.
The ever-changing skies:
The skies at Londolozi are like a constantly changing work of art.
At sunrise, the skies turn soft shades of pink and orange, lighting up the wilderness below.
Throughout the day, the skies shift in colour and mood, from calm blue to dramatic dark blue with passing clouds. This adds depth and beauty to the landscape.
Sunsets at Londolozi are incredibly stunning, with vibrant colours like orange, red, and purple filling the sky as the sun goes down. It’s my favourite moment of the day.
At night, the pristine African sky above Londolozi comes alive with a dazzling display of stars.
As you can see, the wilderness holds numerous colourful and creative surprises, just waiting to be discovered. During your next visit to Londolozi, take the time to notice and appreciate all of nature’s artistic wonders. It will inspire you to pause, observe, and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us here at Londolozi.
