Ten years of de Wets Wild!

Today marks the tenth anniversary of de Wets Wild‘s “birth”.

We’re grateful for the very many friends we made along the way and for all your kindness and encouragement. Thank you.

What better way to celebrate this milestone than taking a quick tour through the wild places of the beautiful country that inspired this blog to begin with!?

    What a fabulous overview – such incredible diversity all in one country! Your gallery of stunning photos does it proud. And congratulations on ten years of blogging and on promoting our wonderful conservation areas and sharing your joy and appreciation of all of nature from the smallest to the largest.

    Seems like yesterday at times; you have shown us lovely facets of the best of your world. The bonus has been watching Joubert as his boots get a bit bigger each year, and he steps into his own destiny. The owl, fly fishing – so many amazing moments and travels.
    Here in Ecuador we have the Yellow-billed Pintail, quite rare on ‘my’ side of the country, but a few managed to drop in to be counted last year.
    As far as unique species, I think that you win hands down! We don’t have lions.. or zebras.. or giraffes, etc etc….
    May we still be swapping stories in another ten years! Joubert will probably be a top photographer for National Geographic!

    Congratulations! I wish you the best, my friend. You are doing all the right thing to help Mother Nature and I’m proud of it. Today, you are showing so many wonderful places to demonstrate how vast is the African territory and how beautiful it is. Let’s keep it that way, forever! Thank you. πŸ™‚

    πŸŽ‰ … Ek wil sommer die post 10 x like!! Baie geluk, ek sien ek sal ‘n bietjie moet teruggaan in julle argiewe – hier is soveel mooi foto’s! ‘n Paar bekende plekke waar ons ook al was … dis net mooi ‘n jaar gelede wat ons die Swartbergpas vir die eerste keer gery het (in reen weer πŸ‘€).
    Ek hoop ons gaan sommer nog saam met julle op baie toere gaan – dankie dat julle my soveel leer van my eie land en sy diere!

      Baie dankie, Corna. Ek dink nie ons sal ooit by al die land se mooi plekke uitkom nie, maar ons gaan ons bes probeer! Swartbergpas is n pragtige pad, maar ek dink my senuwees sou aan nerwe gewees het in reenweer!

    I don’t know how long I have journeyed with you, but I am enjoying every step of the way! Well done to you all – after all, even such wonderful photographers need to be fed and nurtured along the way πŸ™‚
