As per the norm here at Kaingu we are doing a pictorial review of the month. August is generally the month that winter leaves us and temperatures start to climb. By the end of the month we were seeing temperatures in the low 30s so a big change there. Birdlife on the river also really starts to pick up. Anyway enough talking and we let the pictures (and captions!) tell the story.
Our motivation signs! They are a bit ironic now (and this is why we posted this) as the road that they are on is now actually the fastest way to reach Kaingu. The D769 (Itezhi Tezhi road) is now being tarred and is in amazing shape and then the last 40kms in through the GMA forest has been worked on by ourselves heavily over the last two years. The net result of all this is that this is now the fastest way to reach Kaingu. However the park side/boat arrival still has far more charm and “safari theater”!
A delightful family from the UK visited ‘our’ school. They had brought footballs and other supplies and were absolutely amazed by the friendliness and enthusiasm at the school.
