13 Jun Getting Out Of The City
A few days ago I came across a quote from John Muir that caught my attention.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn”.
John Muir (1838-1924) was a Scottish immigrant to America, a famous Naturalist who played a major role in securing the preservation of many wilderness areas in the USA. His biographer Donald Worster wrote that Muir believed his mission was “saving the American soul from total surrender to materialism”.
Muir, in elegant prose, articulates so well what Lindani tries to offer. Many of our competitors find it necessary to control and organize your venture into the bush to ensure you achieve maximum sightings and a luxurious experience.
Lindani has gone a different route. We want you to get out there in a way that enables you to connect with the beauty that our mountain bush veld has to offer so that your senses can soak in the surroundings at a pace and intensity that will satisfy.
And so guests have their own private and very comfortable accommodation secluded in the Waterberg mountain bushveld. From there they can ride our single track MTB trails and walk our Green Flag hiking trails which penetrate deep into the bush, game view and bird where and when they want, arrange a picnic alongside a stream or enjoy a private sunset supper at a charming lapa away from the lodges – no time pressure to be back at the lodge in time for the next meal, just the freedom and space to enjoy nature as the mood determines.
In line with John Muir’s quote above, a visit to Lindani is more than just a break from the office. It is therapeutic in its own right.
