Con­ser­va­tion­ist Ian Player once said that in the war to save the world’s wild places and an­i­mals, there is never a Water­loo — a bat­tle af­ter which the war is won. There is only a se­ries of sharp, bit­ter skir­mishes, one af­ter the other, for con­ser­va­tion is guer­rilla war­fare, and it will never end un­til hu­mans un­der­stand that without wild­ness and wilder­ness, we are empty ves­sels.

In this week’s episode of the Sun­day Times Travel Pod­cast, we chat to Louis Strauss and Lazarus Mkhonto about their work at Jock Sa­fari Lodge (see story on page 34). These men — re­spec­tively the lodge’s man­ager and as­sis­tant man­ager — are foot sol­diers in a low-in­ten­sity but on­go­ing strug­gle in the heart of the Kruger Na­tional Park. Plus they have great jobs at an awe­some lodge.
