Australian International Volunteers.....

Classic Wallabies Exchange – South Africa 2015
Australian Volunteers International 

We  were blessed to have a really wonderful, hardworking, and hard-playing group of
volunteer students stay with us while doing development work at Hloaia Chiloana Primary School, in the nearby Acornhoek area. Difficult to meet a truly wonderful group of people.
The volunteers would leave early every morning bright-eyed and bushy tailed, only to return in the afternoon, dusty, tired and thirsty.

Some of us began to wonder what the volunteers were up to at the school. So decided to make a
a visit to the school project.
They had transformed the school and surrounds, and now knew why they always looked tired and dusty on their return to the lodge in the evenings.

 Sadly the group's tour had come to an end.

A fancy dress party was held at the lodge, and a great evening was had by all!!

Some of the staff from the school and local community also came to say a sad good-bye
to the volunteers.

Many with tears in the eye bade farewell to this
wonderful group of young vibrant people.

A big Thankyou for your friendship and hard work from all the staff at Timbavati Safari Lodge.
