... two Belgians, two Park Rangers with enormous ****-off guns, and the wildlife for company. We got our first glimpse of the Big Five that morning, as well as a load of zebras/assorted antelope/giraffes/giant bloody spiders - water buffalo lurking in the distance, and a black rhino and her calf only about 100m away (so close that the clicking of a DSLR lens was too loud). Absolutely brilliant.

We headed back to camp for a well-earned shower and nap, after which ...

... the girls and guys will separate and we will discuss the lesson, answer any questions and start to get to know one another better.

We learned there will be about 50 campers and they are mostly high school age. This is South Africa so all of the above is subject to change. As the days go on and internet is available we will have students from the team post ...

There are a lot of things in Soweto that tell the stories from Apartheid until now. Firstly I visited Nelson Mandela's house (now a museum) where he lived before he was arrested and went ...

A Weekend in Joburg

We ate at the Nelson Mandela Family Restaurant and then continued our tour. On the same street as the Mandela House is Desmond Tutu's house, so I believe it is the only street that has two Nobel winners on it.

We went to the Hector Pieterson Museum, which is located two blocks ...
