African miss you guys already!

It was a sorrow-filled day today as everyone set out on their way to the airport departures. It was extremely hard for us all to let go and say goodbye to friends we’ve made over the last two weeks. Hugs and tears and “see you soons” were murmured each round of shuttle pick ups. It…



A crechey party!!

It was certainly an emotional day today. It was our very last day at the crèches. The kids were so happy to see us again this morning, but our hearts ached having to say goodbye to them. We went our separate ways this morning to the crèches we’ve spent all week at to give the…



That’s not all folks!

Our last day of work is complete!! Wow, has it been a packed four days of hard labor! I am so proud of what they have completed this week. Not only have they been the most motivated group in the world, but their positive attitudes are also contagious. We are so happy with the way…



Are you TIRED yet??

Wow wow wow we made so much dern progress today!! The routine continued with breakfast at 7 and leaving at 8. We drove out to the two crèches and got into the work straight away once again. We needed more people at the new crèche this time because there was so much happening there! At…



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…

Just as we suspected, when we arrived, all the kids were overjoyed to see us. They came piling in by twos and threes to the…



Whoaaaa nelly!

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…



You can’t snare me!

I honestly don’t know how this has happened, but every day seems to get better than the last. It is blowing our minds. The things we’ve been able to do and witness is uncanny and we have been so lucky to have experienced it all this week! It was our last day in the reserve…



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…
