    This morning I was so excited to see the sun and feel the warmth again even if it was slightly windy. Ornella and I were on carnivores so after breakfast we went straight to the slab to find Lala and Brian. I started off cleaning Rosaline and Kaala's water bowls which was easy enough. The tricky job was getting Aranja out of her little inside cage and outside so we …

    Today was a cold day! By cold I mean the England Autumn chill. After breakfast I started to do baby duty but was taken to the antelopes with Ornella as the schedule properly started being used. Richard (the antelope staff member) is awesome. He's so relaxed and funny, and makes the work so much easier. We spent the morning just brushing out the water buckets and refilling them and taking …

    Seeing each other at breakfast today Jos and I almost started crying again. Neither of us can believe she's actually going today! Finally the foods ruck arrived last night and so babies have food! Rees, Rhea and JJ (the duikers) were so pleased to see the buckets piled high with fruit and veggies, and Breezer (bush pig) had even emptied his scrap and chips that had been there for ages …

    Another day began at Chipangali and breakfast seemed very sparse for people. Then I realised - it's Bart, Keeley and Alison's last day and the Parson's last full day before they leave tomorrow so they were having a lie in. After breakfast I fed Tammy banana peels with Ella and went to do babies but when I arrive and opened the fridge it was empty. The truck for rotten fruit and veg fro …

    SaturdayThe morning bell rung again at 5am but I knew better and took that extra hour and half in bed. After breakfast we packed away the tents, which was nice to not do in the rain (thank you DofE). Thank god we found the machete that Joslyn has 'lost' the night before - she had placed t on the lip of the braii and so the plastic handle had melted into the …

  • Day 13 - Tracking Barney

    Nix had mentioned last night that we were getting up at 6am but there is a very loud bell that goes off at 5am for the dairy workers. This obviously did register with neither Jos or me and so that morning bell was our call to wake up. We sat awake moaning that no one was up and that we were hungry but the kitchen was locked, for over an hour until Keeley and …

    Waking up to the morning breath of a bush pig was not pleasant. After breakfast Nix came down and said we were leaving as soon as possible for Matopos, so I had to pack in 5 minutes. With a full backpacks ready for the 3 day-2 night trip we set off with everyone piling in the jeep with the bags and food from Chipangali. Moving off in the Land Rover …

  • Day 11 - The Exhuatsion Sets In

    This morning everyone walked over to breakfast extremely slowly and moaning about our terribly sore bones and muscles. A good hot shower can only go so far as to improving the pain. After feeding Tammy lots of banana peels leftover from breakfast, it was back to the hyena cage for Joslyn, Scott, Alison, Bart and I. The boys built a little house from the big logs outside the fencing for …

  • Day 10 - The Dreaded Hyena Cages

    So this Tuesday was the day my blog crashed and messed up my entire day. But thank god this day was a busy one but only for one thing so I can remember the jist of it. It was time to clean the hyena cage. We shrivelled, and raked, and used the pick axe all day and by the end of the day we were exhausted, covered in dirt so …

    By now, Bali's reputation as a modern-day paradise has been firmly entrenched in popular culture. People know that that as soon as they set foot on the Indonesian island, they'll be entering a place unlike any other. But even people who think they have a general idea of what to expect in Bali might be surprised by the sheer audacity of many of the island's top attractions. With that in …
