The great floods of January 2012 will forever be remembered and spoken about at Londolozi Game Reserve. The sheer volume of water that poured down the Sand River was staggering. Leaving a wake of change in it’s path, this river showed us that humans will never be able to control Mother Nature! I use the word ‘change’ rather then ‘destruction’ because this cycle is natural…a cleansing process and a form of transformation. But change is sometimes hard to take.
The ancient and magnificent Sycamore Fig found on the northern banks of the Sand River, is no more. Swept away in the floods there is no evidence that this tree ever existed in the first place. But her memories will live on forever captured in the minds and photographs of the many guests, rangers and trackers who shared wonderful moments under this iconic tree.
