Wanafunzi bora yetu kwenda katika safari! (Our best students go on safari!)
Enormous thanks go out to our guests Norma, Kathy and Sean who oh, so generously allowed us to fill the space in their safari vehicle (Lake Manyara National Park and Ngorongoro Crater) with four of our most deserving students – Emmanuel, Angela, Lazaro and Francis . . . and Oddo! Asante sana for giving all of them this opportunity to join you on your safari and hongera sana (congratulations) to our children for their outstanding performance at school! They have worked VERY hard to earn this privilege and we are so grateful for the opportunity to allow them to join you!
Our previous group, John, Lauren, Jamie and Jason experienced a couple of “shidas” with their safari schedule and for that we must apologize. On the day before departure I’m afraid we had a call explaining that the lodge we had booked them into was overfull. Baba Raymond (Raymond’s father) was good enough to race to a local hostel where the overflow was being sent and secured us two rooms, but he speaks no English and misinterpreted the fees. Samahani (our apologies) for the confusion and we hope you are enjoying a wonderful safari!!!
You’ve asked for photos and Amanda (and John) were so good to get me my camera cable which I forgot in Canada and so well . . . Karibu watoto Tumaini!!! Here they are! They are well and happy and with the exception of a few rashes and a couple of flu bugs are all healthy! Be well and we will be in touch!
