Teachers on Safari

Jan 7, 2011 | Categories: Education | 2 Comments

Ewaso Lions works closely with Lpus Leluai Primary School in Westgate Community Conservancy.  We have a number of projects with the school including Simba Stories, Trees Project and more recently the new Simba Library and Wildlife Club.  Thanks to donors we have made numerous donations of books, stationary, posters and much more to the school.  We have also taken the school children out on many game drives as part of our Kenya Kids on Safari programme.

Towards the end of term, the teachers and Headmaster of the school, Johnson Lenasalia, asked Ewaso Lions if we could arrange an educational tour for all teachers as an incentive trip.  Many of the new teachers had not seen much wildlife before and were keen to learn more.  We are also i...

Kids on Safari with camera

Our first Kenyan Kids on Safari trip in Samburu was a huge success followed by another one with human-wildlife conflict expert, Nina Fascione.  We recently took 11 school kids out on another drive in Samburu and Buffalo Springs National Reserves.  Sasaab Lodge kindly provided their large vehicle and guide, Innocent, for the drive.  The children come from Lpus Leluai Primary School in West Gate.  Johnson the Headmaster struggled yet again to choose the kids however students that took part in the Simba Stories competition were all selected.  I was amazed at how some of them had drawn fantastic pictures of lions, yet had never seen a lion.

The game drive was fantastic.   I had driven around for 2 days prior to the student drive and ha...
