A Few of our Favourite Things

A Few of our Favourite Things

I asked every intern and volunteer what their favourite moment has been so far whilst being on Karongwe and this is what they said (for some the choosing of an absolute favourite moment was impossible): Emilie – Flippy (the largest bull elephant on Karongwe) walking...

Rhino Challenge Week

Rhino Challenge Week
