Year 4 trek in Mkuru - Mrs Wallace reports on their adventures!

This year’s Y4 Junior Dragon Expedition comes highly recommended. We visited the eco-friendly Oikos training camp at Mkuru, situated in the beautifully, wild Maasai Steppe between Meru and Kilimanjaro (which we saw both at the same time, majestically clear).

The trip was everything a Junior Dragon trip should be: exciting, demanding & fascinating with lots of fun and new learning taking place. Learning about ourselves, our new environment and about Maasai culture. The children felt at home in their fabulous tents and were so excited to be away together.

The 15km hike up Oldonyo Lendaree was demanding and I had my doubts about taking 8 year olds up there but Y4 surpassed my expectations. Every child made it up the steep, dusty, hot trail & back and several summited. This will be a memory that will last! Well done Y4, Miss Mlay and Charles who accompanied us all the way!

Insanely wonderful! Enjoy this video of their adventure: Video Slideshow
