A Walk up Southern Cross Koppie

We had the coolest afternoon the other day! One of our rangers, Kate Imrie, took me, Ava and Oliver Hurwitz (who were staying in Founders Camp) and Emma and Thomas Imrie (Kate’s children) on a special children’s only game drive! Not only did we manage to see animals she also took us for a little walk up one of the rocky hills we have here called Southern Cross Koppie.

I thought I would give you a glimpse into what we did!

To walk up everybody had to put on their bush voices and walk quietly like leopards!

When we got to the top, everybody could run abound and climb over the rocks. This could get difficult at times!

Even with climbing over rocks and exploring to be done , they found the time to pull faces at me!

There was so much to look at and so many places to go!

It was really high up there! I am glad no-one was scared of heights!

Lots of amazing and new things were found up there, but we had to leave everything where we found it!

And of course, everything that goes up must come down!

    Dear Cinzia
    I loved being at Londolozi. I loved decorating the bow and arrow with you and seeing the elephants on the game drive. One nearly charged us- it made me feel scared. Thank you for teaching me how to make a pom-pom! I can’t wait until I see you again. I can’t wait to come back to Cubs’ Den.
    Love Eva! :)

    Thank-you Eva! It was wonderful having you here with us! I am glad you are home safe and can’t wait to put your hand on the wall of the Cubs Den next time!
    Keep in touch! :)
