A bit of nature for the soul

Will Smith once said that, “It feels like God visits everywhere else, but lives in Africa” and I couldn’t agree more. There’s something incredibly soul restoring about getting back to nature, our unparalleled African bush –  smelling the rustic smells of grass and mud, watching and waiting while a heard of elephant cross the road and sipping on a cold cider while looking out over a river at the crocodiles lazily floating by. I’m not sure there are many things in this world that can recharge my batteries as much as the bush magically is able to achieve. My brain seems to get a little dusty now and again, but going out and spending time in God’s beautiful creation clears the cobwebs and gives you a chance to breath and rejuvenate both body and soul.

Not too long ago I had the amazing opportunity to go to the Kruger National Park with the van Dammes – where I hadn’t been for just over 10 years (due to the nasty event of getting malaria upon my last visit) – and be totally enveloped by nature and the tranquillity of the bush. The trip was spectacular – being able to be surrounded by nature from sunrise to sunset. Our country really is a wealth of beauty, it has the most spectacular treasures.

So without further waffling, here are some of the snaps from the weekend away.
