Sad to hear, Pen! He wrote very well indeed, and his conservation mind in the African scenario was really impressive... :cry:

From Thula Thula Private Lodge Facebook Page, 3rd March 2012:

Tonight at Thula Thula, the whole herd arrived at the main house, home to Lawrence and I. We had not seen them here for a very long time. Extraordinary proof of animal sensitivity and awareness that only a few human can perceive. And Lawrence was one of them. Thank you for your wonderful messages. Lawrence's legacy will be with us forever at Thula Thula.

I've just read the chapter in the book where Lawrence was talking
about now his ellies just knew when he was away and when he came
back and found that delayed flight incident particularly astounding.

This post on FB is really giving me the shivers - in a sad and yet fond way...

Thanks for sharing it here, Flutts!
