It is both daunting and surreal to see what our generation can conceptualise, and in a few years from now build. To shape a future reality our children will see as quite ordinary!
The Selati Game Reserve is a 27 000 ha private reserve we’re fortunate to regularly visit. This lush green trip was with some good friends in late March.
P.S. Loved discovering a serendipitous moment shared between an elephant and a butterfly in my footage!
Last week we celebrated the life of my grandpa on the farm where he was born and died 93 years later. Seeing the farm from high above highlights the changing landscape of Nelspruit. It’s amazing to see how the farm has shaped the city’s growth.
Being on the farm brought back wonderful childhood memories of adventurous, outdoor holidays. As one mighty tree fell, we planted another in remembrance.
Today you breathed your last breath and said farewell to a world so very different to the one you entered 93 years ago. Yet you died on the farm, only meters away from the very same house you were born.
You were our heroic grandfather, and great grandfather – the finest and most dignified of gentlemen – who served both our country in the most monumental of wars, and our family with a Lowveld legacy so pioneering and significant.
You enriched and magnified what the Halls family is and proudly represents to so many.
Today Gran finally welcomes you with open arms and your kind twinkly eyes shine even brighter in our night sky.
I took a lot of photos on my recent trip to the bush. But this one is my favourite.
I love the lush, warm colors of the dense bush this time of year. Coupled with a giraffe on his own mission, not interested in posing for the camera. Continue reading Selati giraffe
Last weekend was spent on the river with friends, and a growing number of our offspring. I always find it hard to believe that this beautiful wild landscape is only a four hour drive from Cape Town.
