Game Ranging – A life worth living

As Louis Armstrong once said, `How do you tell someone what jazz is?’

In the same manner how do you tell someone what wilderness is? When I enter the wilderness, I do not have to throw a switch or need time to connect, I know I am there; the healing power of its solitude is in my soul. What is written on these pages is my experience of a time past. A past left behind by time but alive in memory. This is my account of the life given to me while working in conservation. I hope I have conveyed the pleasure and personal growth I experienced as a game ranger.

As Louis Armstrong once said, `How do you tell someone what jazz is?’

In the same manner how do you tell someone what wilderness is? When I enter the wilderness, I do not have to throw a switch or need time to connect, I know I am there; the healing power of its solitude is in my soul. What is written on these pages is my experience of a time past. A past left behind by time but alive in memory. This is my account of the life given to me while working in conservation. I hope I have conveyed the pleasure and personal growth I experienced as a game ranger. I arrived from the city and was given the golden opportunity of learning from and working with a team of capable, committed men. We were a mixture of Afrikaans, English and Zulu, each of us at different points along the personal growth curves of our lives, brought together by life’s wonderful mystery. What helped us get where we wanted to go was a combination of trust, leadership and the belief that between us we had the ability to set the standards needed and to finish what we started.

Complimenting this was a skills pool to which each person contributed and which grew constantly as our experience expanded. It was a time of building and growing. Within this rich abundance of friendship and wilderness, enriched by long hours on horseback, the lessons learnt served to develop and mature me and imprinted principles to live by.
