Wilderness Safaris Zambezi’s team wishes to thank our shareholders for their ongoing support through these very difficult times. We look on with extreme gratitude at the way you, our shareholders, have dealt with COVID-19, continued to run the business, looked after the enormous staff contingent, and handled the many unseen challenges these times have brought.
In an effort to display the wonders of Wilderness Safaris, our people, and most importantly to express our appreciation, we decided to create a Wall of Gratitude. This will serve as a vibrant reminder of how fortunate we are to be part of the ‘Wilderness Family’, of how a group of passionate, like-minded people pull together through adversity to assist Wilderness Safaris survive the trials and come out stronger.
Susan Cottrell, a Victoria Falls-based amateur artist, who is used to painting semi-abstract pieces on board with lots of dripping inks, smudgy paintwork, and very seldom uses a brush, created this 16 square-metre masterpiece. Susan, who on numerous occasions has been part of our Children in the Wilderness programmes, jumped at the opportunity to extend herself ‘into a realm never imagined’ and create something special.
In order to be visible to all who visit the office, we chose an exterior wall of the storeroom at the Wilderness Safaris Victoria Falls office. The painting represents all departments and employees of our Wilderness family, who will all write personalised messages of appreciation as they return to work.
Inspired by our shareholders, we will continue to work together to the best of our abilities. We extend our heartfelt thanks, and look forward to a 2021 full of new beginnings, and hopefully the return of tourists to our beautiful region.
