On the 3rd of December 2012, 16 Children from the Loensa La Moriti village in Botswana arrived at Mashatu Tent Camp as part of the Children in the Wilderness – Limpopo Valley environmental education programme. The small village of Loensa La Moriti is situated within the confines of the Northern Tuli Game Reserve in north eastern Botswana. The children form part of the St Engenas ZCC community, and enjoy a strong Christian education and upbringing.
Mashatu Game Reserve makes its Tent Camp available to the Children in the Wilderness – Limpopo Valley initiative for two weeks a year for the environmental education and upliftment of children who live in the communities on the western boundary of the reserve.
This brief three-minute clip shows the children in the hide on Mashatu, which the elephants visit daily during the dry season.
