Isandlwana Candy Run

I’m going to start by apologising for using the C word at this time of year, I wouldn’t do it normally but if I delay telling you about the Christmas (sorry) Candy Run at Isandlwana any longer it might be too late for you to be a part of it.

Since 2000 it has become a tradition for staff and guests staying at Isandlwana Lodge over the festive period to drive around the local community giving bags of sweets to the children. This has the double benefit of bringing beaming smiles to the kids faces and warming the hearts of the guests who always come away saying things like “the candy run made my Christmas” and “this is what Christmas is all about”.

Some of the children are quite cunning and if they are close to another homestead, they run behind the houses and show up at the next one as though they were there for the first time. After several incidents like this, one little girl was bumped by another child and several bags of sweets fell on the ground. The expression on her face was priceless but in her defense, she had several younger siblings who were not there and I’m sure she was doing her own candy run to them.

So if you’d like to spend Christmas playing Santa to some youngsters who really appreciate it then Isandlwana Lodge is the place to stay and this year they have a  special rate  for the holiday period so be one of the wise men or women and book now!

    Exploring Tanzanias Northern Circuit

    It had been a few years since my last visit to Northern Tanzania, an area on many people’s bucket list, and an area with names that evoke all sorts of emotions. My memories of my first visit to Tanzania, about 20 years ago, are still with me – particularly the cheetah sighting in the tall grass of the Serengeti, when the cubs got told off by their Mum, because she lost the Tommy she had just caught for their dinner, as they were otherwise occupied with some rough and tumble.
