Safari with soul
“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone”
A story worth sharing…
Molori Safari recently hosted the Cobb guests from the United States – amazing people with the kindest souls. During their stay at Molori, they spoke to JohnD, their game ranger, about the possibility of visiting a local village to understand the culture and everyday life. JohnD arranged a visit to the Molatedi village and included a visit to the village primary school. Molatedi is a small village situated very close to the Madikwe Game Reserve.
In short, the Cobb’s were completely humbled by the experience. So much so, that on their return to the USA, they arranged to send over new sports shoes, t-shirts and soccer balls for every single child at the school. With the help of Principal Regina, who assisted with the task of collecting shoe sizes and, a large number of emails back and forth with the USA, a number of boxes were finally delivered to Molori Safari.
The handover was a magical experience for all that were at the ceremony. Smiling, laughter and joyous chit chatter could be heard all day as children tried on their new shoes and t-shirts. There was much dancing and singing by the children, who also enjoyed a lunch sponsored by the Molori Safari team. It was a memorable day, never to be forgotten.
Molori Safari, JohnD and principal Regina were extremely grateful to the Cobb guests for their overwhelming generosity and for making a difference to this community.
