on Making Friends on Safari: What Happened When We Went Tracking

Hello! I came to Londolozi recently, and I enjoyed it very much! I’m 10 years old and I went to the Cubs Den activities. They were so fun, and we went track moulding as well. Jo, who was in charge of the Cubs Den was so nice, and my brother and I were so excited every morning to hear what activities we were going to do. We also made some friends, and at first we were all very shy, but eventually we started to talk, and make friends. Thank you for such a wonderful time Londolozi!

Thank you Issy! We so enjoyed having you and look forward to featuring your amazing story on the blog soon too! Hope you had fun in Mauritius.. Best regards, Amy


What a wonderful way to make new friends!
