Sitting with Elephants - Sarah Foster

Many ancient traditions teach us that to find the answers to our deepest questions we must sit quietly on the earth and observe nature. Life's lessons will unfold in front of our eyes if we simply allow ourselves to take it all in with an open mind and unified heart.

Volunteer of the month! Walter, 4 times with us!

My name is Walter, I live in Vienna and I’m 75 years old turning 76 in December.

You may think life has not much to offer any more? This is my story:

I’ve been to many beautiful places in South Africa and neighbouring countries, staying in nice and expensive lodges, but deep in my heart I knew “something” was missing.

Incredible battle for survival – Cheetahs VS Wildebeest

The unexpected happened in front of our eyes on the way back home. The sighting of a lifetime, the dream of many. One of those moments that can’t be retold because you must live them to feel the tension, the adrenaline. All your senses heighten and there is an internal fight between seeing a kill and hoping for the prey to escape. A moment that the best documentaries try to portray. But this was real, in front of our eyes!
