DOLPHINING is rapidly becoming a recognised word in the English language, well certainly at Kizingo, where it is incorporated into our daily lives. DOLPHINING, otherwise known as swimming, entertaining and playing with wild groups of dolphins, quickly becomes an addictive pastime.
The experience of dolphining creates an almost childlike sense of euphoria, the most unlikely guests suddenly find themselves transformed - foolishly smiling and giggling with glee, this sensation often refuses to rub off all day!
The dolphin trips this season at Kizingo have been better than ever, with each expedition offering a new insight into the dolphins' highly sociable and friendly world. The most unusual aspect of Kizingo dolphin adventures, aside the fact that Louis knows the pods intimately, easily identifying characters in each group such as Nick and Lyra, is that these noble creatures actively seek us out and approach us, it is a mutual bond of respect.
The more you come into contact with these fascinating mammals the greater the desire to understand and spend more time with them, hence the success of Louis' Dolphin trips.
'Of all land animals, some avoid man,
and some of those who approach him,
Like the dog, the horse or the elephant,
Are loving to him because he feeds them.
But on the dolphin, alone among all others,
Nature has bestowed this gift which the
Greatest philosophers long for: disinterested
Friendship. It has no need of man, yet
Is the friend of all men, and has often
Given him great aid.'
Plutarch. 200 B.C.
