Building Bridges | The Good Work Foundation

My Trip | The Secret Life of Tanzania

The Secret Life of Tanzania

Ever wondered what a trip to the Serengeti would be like? Maybe you watched Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman head out on a lion safari in Tanzania in “The Bucket List” and were struck by that pang to go in search of your own adventure. Films do that. It’s uncontrollable, the niggling urge to take off immediately, […]

My Trip | It’s My Party And I’ll Fly If I Want To

A Victoria Falls Birthday

All that hullabaloo over one person, all that cake… Birthdays should be wondrous events that brighten the world, if only for one day. Like our client, Alicja Suchorska from Poland’s […]

Londolozi’s Charm | A Rockstar, a Sanctuary and a Boma

Granite Pool | Londolozi

My Trip | Admiring Africa With New Eyes

My-Trip: With New Eyes

For the last two months Poodle and I have had somewhat of a crush on everything Lori does. It all started when we feasted our eyes on Lori’s photographs of Namibia.
