Diary of a Lost French Student

After the sound of my alarm clock, it is very difficult to get up – but thinking of all the things I will do today, I find the courage to leave my bed. I meet some of my fellow students in the kitchen to have breakfast together. After brushing my teeth, we are finally ready to get down to business. First, we have to go to the office for the morning meeting. We are told what to do for today, but very often the tasks evolve over the...

A Rhino Tale

A RHINO'S TALE. ©A poem by Caroline Street. I was born at midday,Under the shady Umbrella Tree.Filtered sunlight, like warm hayBrought life to a newly born me.The soft green grass,Was my cushion of welcome. That first sweet tasteOf mother's milk,Brought strength to a frail young me.A soft nudge from Mom,Was all the encouragement needed,To raise me to my feet.I was born into freedomIn the animal kingdom. For the next few days,Life...

Much Ado About Cheetahs

The cheetahs, however, are not perturbed about the cold. "They don't like the rain, but they don't care about the cold," says Leah Brousse, the main cheetah handler at Inverdoorn.

Indaba 2013

“COMING TOGETHER IS A BEGINNING; KEEPING TOGETHER IS PROGRESS; WORKING TOGETHER IS SUCCESS.” – HENRY FORD

Indaba 2013

Arriving at King Shaka International Airport in Durban for the 2013 Indaba we were greeted with a wet welcome. Rain, accompanied by a biting chill, contradicted the legend of Durban's warm weather. This meant that the first day of Indaba on 11 May was a busy one, as the prospect of being indoors was a good one. Taking place at the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC), this year was the 34th Indaba since its inception in 1979...
