There was a real excitement around the school compound as we pulled up in the the new school van. We have managed to replace our 20 year old van with a 2003 Nissan Caravan, it has a lovely 3.0 litre automatic diesel engine, it has air conditioning and is 4 wheel drive.

Imported vehicles from Japan arrive in Kenya without any seats (except the front ones!) You then have to take it to a specialist who will fit it out to your specification. We decided to go for a mix between a school bus and safari bus, which means we have the flexibility not only to carry staff and students on trips but have the option of taking them further afield to Tsavo East National Park and beyond. Many of our students and staff have never been able to see their wildlife close up, until now!

As soon as the vehicle has completed it’s first safari we will post some photos for you to see, unless you want to come yourself!!!

Have a great weekend. Xx Glyn & Jane
