A Place of Meeting - the birth of Isibindi Africa Lodges

Driven by conservation and a love for Southern Africa’s wildest, most beautifully isolated regions, Brett and Paige Gehren began building a dream.

“We are going to where spirit meets wilderness. I feel like the others who have walked with Nunu Jobe and become overwhelmed, but I’m not sure why. Nunu passes me a buffalo thorn branch, and leads us forward. We walk further through the bush, then emerge into a dusty opening – a watering hole – face to face, with four white rhino.”   - (excerpt, A Place of Meeting - the Birth of Isibindi Africa Lodges)

the unspoken impact of the #ImStaying movement

'Sometimes all we need is that tiny glimmer of hope, that tiny flickering flame in a room filled with darkness and despair, to turn our hearts and our minds around.’ – Jarette Petzer, #ImStaying founder

 #ImStaying: the unspoken impact of the #ImStaying movement is the true story of the #ImStaying movement in South Africa, where over 1.4 million South Africans of every race, socio-economic and political background came  together to share stories across cultural barriers that many had never crossed before. This book tells a story of South Africa between the politics, between the statistics, and of every day South Africans creating social cohesion through storytelling – reaching out to each other to inspire real change in the country they love and want to see succeed, and shaping a new future out of a painful past.

(The Story of Q.)



Legend tells that in ancient times, a divine stream poured from the Earth itself, quenching the thirst of passers-by.


  The stream was said to contain the Knowledge of God, others claimed it had a bedrock of gold. Over time, the location of the stream became obscured, and legend became an ever-fading map, revisited and retold, leaving treasure hunters seeking for centuries. Until one day, by chance, an ancient document is found.
