With the South African National Lockdown extended an additional two weeks, many citizens have been left feeling overwhelmed and full of despair. We want our kids to return to school, we want to return to work and we want to feel the freedom of being in nature once more.
While we continue to stay home this month, let us remember that as a country, we can overcome any crisis as long as we stand together.
Let us take this time to reflect on who we are, who we want to be and what we are grateful for.
Plan your next vacation, start that hobby you keep putting off or spend some quality time with your loved ones and most importantly take this time to just BE!
We are all in this together, and while this unprecedented event has forced our lives to continue at a different pace; forced each one of us to make sacrifices and compromises, we still have the little things to be thankful for:
Sunrise and sunset
A roof over our heads
A warm meal
A hot bath
Family and friends to talk to
The space and time to take a step back and re-evaluate our busy lives
The kindness of strangers
A chance to return to the African bush once more
Let us remember what we are grateful for and have faith in the incredible combined strength of all South Africans.
If you were heading to South Africa, we wish to see you soon! And if you were planning a safari, don’t stop planning. If there has ever been a time to be hopeful, it is now. And if there has ever been a time to dream of the African bush, it is now.
Remember to check the WHO coronavirus situation reports and your government’s own site for daily updates, and to plan your travel accordingly.
We wish you well, and hope to welcome you soon!
