We are the zulu dancing kings

They had more work to do today! That is the tale for the remainder of the trip, but not one person is sad about it. I am here to motivate, but they are all so motivated already, it’s amazing! I don’t even have to make sure they’re up in the morning. They all rush down…

First day of crèche loving today!! Man oh man was everyone excited!! We were all buzzing at breakfast, looking forward to starting the work and meeting all the smiling kids.

After all that craziness of the week, today we got a free day to do whatever our hearts desired! I thought they were all going to kiss me when I told them breakfast was at 9am the next day too. Their faces were absolutely priceless. Don’t worry guys, I accept tips in the form of…



Guys, we’re so safari!

Whoa whoa whoa 4:30am… Where did you come from?? When we say early morning this morning, we’re not joking. We were determined to get up in time to be at the park early enough to see the lions. Now, it’s always a gamble on whether or not they’ll show themselves, but there was no way…

Wood you like to try??

Morning morning morning! The alarms were early again today as the braai night went very late. We just can’t stop talking and playing games, so going to bed late is too easy. I guarantee it won’t be tonight, though because we were all struggling with sleep deprivation this morning. Luckily, the cooks at Somkhanda know…

I honestly don’t know if this day could’ve been any more exciting. Get ready for some epic adventures for the day! First, we began our day alongside the sun, brushing our teeth to a gorgeous sunrise over the mountains. We had to know that it meant it was going to be quite the day. After…



What a hairy situation ;)

Such an exciting first day we had!! It was the most perfect way to start the trip, and I don’t think we could’ve asked for a better day. As everyone was arriving all day yesterday, they were absolute troopers, pushed through the jet lag and made the most of their tiredness. (Pictures to come!) We…
