Over the weekend the students got the opportunity to explore further afield with two trips South of TBI. On Saturday morning, after an hour’s drive through the arid landscape and villages with smiling, waving children, the students arrived at the lush Kerio Delta.
Here they embarked on a fishing boat trip downstream to where the Kerio river meets the lake. None of the fishing boats had motors so all the students helped out and took turns paddling and bailing out water. It was good fun!
Throughout the trip, Dr. Martins introduced the students to some of the local wildlife, such as the pied kingfisher and the purple heron. Some of the students were lucky enough to glimpse a hippo as it was emerging from the reeds and diving underwater, which caused a lot of excitement.
The following day, the students set off for a hike in the Napedet Hills.
It was hot and the slopes were quite steep, but the cool breeze and the spectacular view from the top were very rewarding.
