Back to Ziwa. AHI has donors who pay for a yearly field trip and in the past it’s always been to Kampala, usually a tour of a fancy hotel or restaurant, lunch, and then back to the Ranch.
This year, Maggie wanted the students to see a different environment they could work in (game parks), and decided to take us all to Ziwa Rhino Preserve. All the staff and students were able to go, and Ziwa gave us such a great deal, AHI was able to afford 3 meals and an overnight, as well as the tracking!
The Ziwa staff were so great, they let the students help them prepare dinner in the restaurant (Ali was furiously scribbling down all the recipes), talked to them about working in the hospitality industry, and were really excited about working on an internship program for some of our students! We also toured their new lodge being built in another section of the property.
Thank you to the FAHI donors who make the field trips possible every year, and thank you to Ziwa for the great experience – everyone loved it and learned so much!
