Wuau, time flies!

It’s already over two months since I left but believe me, I haven’t forgotten you. The time I spent with the ladies at African Dream Horse Safari was the most amazing experience in my life. I have to admit I didn’t really know what to expect when I decided to do your volunteering program. So I was quite excited when I landed in Hoedspruit and finally met this crazy woman, Traci, who I knew from the beginning you can only fall in love with!

I spent a bit more than 4 weeks with the Thomson’s, the horses and the wild animals in the bush. The program covered everything I was hoping for: wildlife, horse riding, the most amazing people and just a great time. I still cannot believe how much I learnt about the bush, the animals and horse riding in these four weeks. Glen just knows everything about the bush and is eager to share all his knowledge with the students. Traci would earn the title of a horse whisperer, unbelievable how she deals with the horses.

In addition to the learning part, the social part did not fall too short. We had nice braais around the lapa in the evening, went out to Safari to dance the night away and had interesting discussions at the pool in the middle of the bush.

The Thomson family made my time at African Dream Horse Safari one of the most valuable experiences I ever had. I look forward to meeting you all very soon! Big hugs from Switzerland!
