Camp Jabulani celebrates Mandela Day 2013

By 24th Jul 2013 No Comments

On Mandela Day Camp Jabulani and HESC joined forces and took 18 children (age 7/8 years) and two teachers from Paulos Ngobeni Primary School for 67 minutes (times 10) of fun and education. Arriving at HESC at 9am, the group was divided in two and they boarded safari vehicles and, equipped with candy and water, they set off on safari. During these two hours they encountered several game species, including zebra, giraffes, hippos, impala, kudu, buffaloes, elephants and numerous other animals. For most of them this was their first encounter with game and who knows, we may have a SKS-ranger of the future among these kids.

The weather was unfortunately quite miserable and before meeting Jabulani and his family, the group stopped at the stables for a break and some fun time. While the chefs of Camp Jabulani did the final preparations, the children played with the students, who are currently taking part in the HESC student programme.

Watching the elephants at the waterhole and introducing Jabulani to the children, was a lot of fun and we are sure that this day will be remembered by the children for a long time to come!
