The Children in the Wilderness (CITW) Makuleke Youth Environmental Stewardship (YES) Club annual camp was held from 27 to 29 September at Pafuri Trails in the far north of South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Eight youth (four boys and four girls) from the Youth Environmental Stewardship Club at Makuleke’s N’wanati High School attended. They were supported by a full camp staff complement of nine Eco-Mentors (teachers, guides, chefs, housekeepers and a wildlife tracker).
We are grateful for the continued support of all our stakeholders, namely the Makuleke Communal Property Association, The Makuleke Traditional Council, The Department of Basic Education represented by the Malamulele South Circuit office, Return Africa as well as N’wanati High School.
The children had a lot of fun while learning about and appreciating Pafuri’s heritage and wildlife. Not only did the children learn, but so did the teachers, some of whom were attending a CITW camp for the first time. They had a great time and appreciated the exposure to the beautiful wilderness and wildlife found at Pafuri.
