D4 is Simon, my Brothers son who is in America right now.. As Carolyn quite rightly says..' You can take an african to new York, but you CAN't take africa and all it means away from him!'

D4 ( Dylan Dean Douglas-Dufresne)  is Simon, my Brother’s son who is in America right now..He’s 10 years old!  As Carolyn his mother quite rightly says..’ You can take an african to new York, but you CAN’t take africa and all it means away from him!’

BUT again lets finish on a bright note!! Remember The Milgis Lugga was once famous elephant country, so famous that this area was chosen to be be the biggest game park of its time back around the 50’s or 60’s, but because of ‘other interrests’ it did not happen?? Its not worth discussing what that was, and what happened after that in the 70s and 80s….  BUT our intention is to bring this area to its former glory..

WE ARE GETTING THERE!!!

The Golden Lugga ...

The Golden Lugga …

and out there, kumbe there was two elephants!!

and out there, kumbe there was two elephants!!

D4 you are NOT dead after all.. This elephant is YOU!!!!! Stay well and enjoy life!!

D4 you are NOT dead after all.. This elephant is YOU!!!!!
Stay well and enjoy life!!

  1. Dear Helen, I still read your blogs/newsletters with huge interest and think of you and Pete often.
    I spent nearly a week up with Anne Powys last week (with the succulenta group) on Suiyan, and the joy of watching the elephant coming in to the river; looking at a herd of camels with great suspicion, but no fear, mingling with greater Kudu. Ah – that is the Africa I love.
    But now I am off on my travels – Cyprus, Cornwall and around the UK.
    Wonder if you will be at Ron’s BIG party – unfortunately I will be away.
    With love and thoughts.
    Gail
