Inside a Masai Mara School – VII

Experiencing a Masai Mara School : A Short Detour

We had our fill of African Safari Game viewing inside Masai Mara for the last two days and a half. Now it is time for us to be heading back to our Eco camp and on our way we took a short detour in order to visit a neighboring Masai school. We met the Vice -principal, (since the principal was away) and he spoke about the students, their backgrounds, the school, about the teachers and also about the grants and aids that ran the school. The Principal’s office was decorated nicely with charts and graphs illustrating the school’s progress. My wife, herself a teacher, was interested to join a class.

Extreme Hiking : Caminito Del Ray

Caminito Del Ray – Extreme hiking

Have you heard about Caminito Del Ray before ? Well I had never heard of this backpacking and hiker trip before. And the reason is that for the last 10 years the ribbon thin high altitude walkway  was closed and then under repair for another four years. Did you check out this travel option ? Can this fit into your Budget travel plan? It might, but surely not in your Family Travel plan for sure. It is , what I call, Extreme hiking !!

Do you have what it takes to take up this extreme mode of hiking and outdoors travel ? Here are some basic facts. Situated over the  Chorro Falls , near  the town of Ardalles in Spain (under the province of Malage – 62 Kms from Malaga city ) lies this Walkaway which was originally built around the begining of the 20th Century. It is about 100 meters from the ground and is about 3 Kms long from one end to the other.
