Through the Eyes of a Child

Last week, the Tanda Tula children were privileged enough to take part in the most amazing project put together by Mike Kendrick from Wild Shots Outreach and Elephants Alive. All these kids have parents who are part of the Tanda Tula family and were all under the age of thirteen.  For some of them, it was their first time on a proper safari and for most of them a completely new experience to deal with a digital camera.

Bataleur Eco Safaris hosted these incredibly fortunate kids while they learnt about conservation, wildlife photography, tracking and other bush skills. They also spent a lot of time on elephant ecology. For each child,  it was a learning experience. It was an opportunity to broaden their horizons, expose them to new things and to learn about the fragile environment which surrounds them. It was overwhelmingly obvious that this bunch of young students had the most brilliant time. They gained new knowledge and skills and had a lot of fun in the process. The passion that everyone who was involved had for this project was contagious and the children got caught up in the excitement and love of the environment and photography itself.
