Robyn, thank you for the lesson about wind in South Africa. Umoya is what we in the western US experience near the Rocky Mountains. The breath of life where the wind blows always.

Hi Robyn, your story about the wind at Londolozi is intriguing and is so true. Forsure the wi d carries resilience, freedom. Umoya is the breath of life, and also influences the pattern of the eco system and agriculture phenomena.

Robyn: Another ‘other’ blog that expands our knowledge beyond safari animals (although I love those, too). I savor reading about the environment and ecology and the bugs, birds, plants, etc. A special plus is the fab photo of the klipspringer and rainbow. Thank you

Robyn, fascinating article explaining the winds and their meaning in South Africa. I loved learning the Zulu word for wind and that it translates into so much more than the literal meaning, as do so many other African words. Thank you!

I love your explanation of the symbolism of hate winds of South Africa. Wind is something we often ignore in Western culture, unless they are damaging something. I’ll think of them more as Earth’s breath the next time I’m out walking on a windy day.

Very cool and informative post Robyn! Thanks as always!
