Life as a Londolozi trainee ranger is not boring! Days are filled up very quickly as you run around learning about every facet of lodge life whilst at the same time studying and building up knowledge, writing tests and assignments and most excitingly, taking game drives most mornings and afternoons. It’s on these game drives that each one of the nine new trainees gets a chance to sit behind the wheel and put into practice everything that has been learnt in the days prior. With the focus being on rifle training two weeks ago there wasn’t too much time for them in the bush but this last week has seen them out every morning and afternoon with special focus on geology and botany. Spending that many hours out in the bush every day is bound to yield some interesting sightings and that is why we asked them to share with us some of their best. What’s also a bit different this week is that most of the images have been taken on an iphone.
Enjoy this Week in Pictures through the phone camera of a Londolozi Trainee…
