Welcome to Conservation Safaris

 

A message from us to you

 

To all our friends, guests, staff, partners and the global community, just a short message to wish you and your dear ones, safety and security during these challenging times of the SARS-Cov-II pandemic.

 

I would also like to share part of the poem 'To a Mouse' by Robert Burns 1786, which keeps coming to me.

The poem reveals the unpredictability of life and the pain & suffering that all creatures, (including humans!), experience at some point in the journey we call life and the compassion that can come forth from that experience.

 

It's his story of upturning a mouse's nest whilst he ploughed a field. The resulting poem is an apology to the mouse.

The often repreated phrase "The best laid schemes o' mice an' men often go awry" is just a small part of a longer poem...


Tick
But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane [you aren't alone]
Tick
In proving foresight may be vain:
Tick
The best laid schemes o' mice an' men
Tick
Gang aft a-gley, [often go awry]
Tick
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
Tick
For promised joy.

Whilst the extent and severity of the virus plays itself out at different rates around the world,

we remember the Persian phrase "And this too shall pass" (این نیز بگذرد‎), and send our heart felt wishes of support to everyone.

 

Best wishes for now & the future.

 

Mark, Bansi & the Conservation Safaris team.
