We got onto an awesome bus that can play DVD’s, has aircons and even has foot rests.
- The trip was such fun. We stopped and we bought ice-creams and even souvenirs.
- I was lucky and got in a dorm with my best friend Fari.
- Later we went swimming in the river and had a awesome day as well as dinner. That night we slept under a huge tree named George and we barely slept a wink and had so much fun.
- George had more than 4000 kids sleep under him and they say he would protect us and it was completely safe though. Everyone was fine.
- We had our first night and it was awesome and a bit later we packed up everything like our sleeping bags.
- We had a really nice breakfast.
- Later we went to an awesome rehabilitation centre called Khamairehab centre.
- We saw lots of different animals like:
–Big Boy an awesome lion.
–A leopard that our teachers got to feed.
–Some of us got to hold vultures
–Even cooler we saw hyenas and cheetahs that other schools didn’t get to.
- Later that day we got to go to the reptile park which had an awesome snake show and they proved that snakes are not that dangerous. There were even black mambas. We also got to take photos holding a huge python.
- We had an awesome day on Wednesday. Trust me!
- We stopped at a cool , huge dam. It was as tall as a crane.
- We went to an awesome resort called Swadini.
- It is a really, really cool resort.
- There are:

–There was a cool shop to buy some souvenirs.
- For lunch we had really nice hamburgers and juices.
- That was one of the most fun things on tour. Later we went home and had a really nice day.
- Thursday was the best day of all!
- We had the most fun that day, my best friend and I.
- Everybody was so excited.
- We started off at paint balling and it was such fun. It was raining and muddy and it seemed like we were in world war 2.
- Our team won against the other team thanks to our most amazing tactics. For example we had no bullets and we tricked the team to make them think we were going to shoot them.
- After all that we went zip Lining which was so scary but such fun!
- We also went on a rope and had to walk across the rope without falling into the river. There is even another thing. We went to a rope and swung into the river like Tarzan.
- besides all of that, My favourite thing was River Rafting and trust me, you get the biggest thrill ever.
- I fell out of my boat but got safely back in.
- Although don’t worry, if you get over shot it is completely safe with a guy that throws a rope to you and if you miss that there is another guy in a boat to stop you.
- So do not worry it is completely safe.
- So you mommy’s must not get scared for your children.
- I have been there and I have survived.
- You can ask any of my friends.
- So your next school trip should be to Blyde River Adventure Camp
