Game Vet Weekend

 

An unequalled experience..some Babes were moved to tears. The privilege of experiencing this adventure with Brazen wildlife, is one the Bush Babes will treasure until they are old and grey...but still able to tell the tale in the corridors and on the sunny verandas of our retirement villages and old age homes where we intend to be the coolest 'ou tannies' that ever walked the earth. All glory to God for all our blessings. Amen.

5in1 Pilgrim's Rest Adventure

 

What a babeliciously fantastic weekend this was! We cried together, laughed together, nearly drowned together and took care of each others' wounds (physically, mentally and emotionally). Hats off to all these special Babes who stood together through every single challenge and chuckle on this adventure.

Kyknet Mbizi Outdoor Ekspo 

 

 

The Bush Babes spent Saturday with a bevy of deaf Babes from St Vincent's school to introduce them to the outdoor and 4x4 lifestyle as part of Deaf Awareness Month at the Kyknet Mbizi Outdoor Expo! They got their 4x4 on with Andre de Villiers, they dusted it up with Rocking Rollers, sped off with N1 4x4, went on camel rides, enjoyed a 5D movie experience, spent some time with one of Bambela's newest orphan baby Vervet Monkeys and shook it up with L A Sport and Lionel Lewis in the Dakar Iveco rally truck!

Special Forces Weekend with Group 73

 

“What an incredible weekend, one that will stay with all of us for a very long time.”  What makes an incredible weekend?  Standing on the skids of a helicopter while it flies out over the plains of Harties, survival training, sleeping in the bush and weapons training with AK47’s is the perfect way!  Definitely one of our best weekends ever.

An unforgettable weekend in the veld - sleeping under the stars, learning to read the bush and guarding rhino under a full moon!

Rhino Orphanage Visit 

 

This day trip was an absolute dream come true for many of the Babes.  Feeding orphaned baby rhino’s at a highly secret location!  We learnt about the challenges faced by many of the private rhino owners in South Africa and what we can do to help.  This was also a trip done for the Bush Babies and Bush Bugs Club - the little ones loved it!

Elephant Safari Weekend

 

At the beautiful Kwa Madwala Game Reserve the Babes got a chance to enjoy an elephant interaction, learning about these amazing animals unbelievable sense of smell amongst others.  A horseback game safari through the reserve and then back to feed the elephants.  A wonderfully, relaxing weekend in the bushveld, close to nature.
