Zoolooland Expedition

Hey Guys!

I must tell you about a WONDERFUL trip we went on recently to Deepest Darkest Zoolooland.
It was actually a rugged and challenging course in which we were required to survive under tricky conditions, with carefully thought-out obstacles and challenges put in our way by the artful dodgers who led us.
It was run by an amazing outfit called:

Ngoye4
who led us astray boldly into the back roads of wild Zooloo territory where we watched and learned as he reached out to locals to see if they knew where they were.

Fully equipped, this part of the course led us carefully through:
– Correct equipment
– Packing for an expedition
– The use of snatch ropes and tow ropes
– Handy stuff to always have in your 4X4 (axes, bowsaws, forest vines & lianas)

You had to be really young and superbly fit to survive, but WE DID! Covered in the mud and the blood and the beer, we emerged smiling from the forest, much the wiser.

Both tours were excellently victualled, lots of sweet and fortified coffee, sarmies, fruit, biscuits, biltong and more. Those who brought deckchairs thinking they would sit back and gaze serenely at the tree tops were optimists in the mist.

Someone came up with an idea as we were leaving to go on a completely different kind of trip next time with this sort of outfit:

But we thought NAH! – we enjoyed the first two so much that we’d book with them again.

Thanks everybody!!
Unforgettable (and NOT, as Don muttered “unforgiveable”)!!
It was amazing and a whole lot of fun with great people.
