Now that we are all back home, I just wanted to take this opportunity on behalf of our group to say a huge thank you to you and all the team at Klipbokkop. The time spent there exceeded all of my hopes and expectations, and many of the boys have commented that their favourite part of the trip was whist we were with you. I cannot thank you enough for looking after us so well, and for making us feel so welcome.

During a recent visit by students from the St. Paul School of London, they were introduced to some of the variety of fauna and flora of the Cape Floristic Kingdom at Klipbokkop. With the guidance of Gerhard Groenewald and his team, they explored some of the different scenarios and terrains at Klipbokkop.
Anita Meyer from Cape Leopard Trust Boland Projects, gave a talk during their first evening and the students walked with her the next morning, to visit some of the fixed cameras and was very excited to find the evidence of spoor, scats and pictures of the first leopard cub ever recorded by these cameras at Klipbokkop.
During the second afternoon, well-known herpetologist Marius Burger, accompanied the students on a walk in the mountains where they went in search of lizzards, etc. Marius gave a talk during the evening and encouraged the guys to follow their dreams and all to become herps. Soccer fever also ran high and the boys used every opportunity to kick ball, with our local “Bafana Bafana” players, Hendrik and Erik. ((We had a wonderful time showing you around and hope to have you back soon.
