The Ndlopfu Gogos’ first-ever visit to the Kruger National Park was marked by a moment of pure connection as their enchanting song appeared to summon a herd of elephants. In partnership with Elephants Alive, these matriarchs are on a Koru Camp programme that aims to immerse them in nature so they become ambassadors who are empowered to influence perceptions and ensure the coexistence of community and wildlife conservation. The three-way collaboration epitomises the power of unity in conservation efforts and highlights the importance of shared experiences and mutual understanding.
Koru Camp hosted Southern Cross and German students for a cross-cultural biodiversity study, yielding memorable experiences and inspiring environmental stewardship.
Koru Camp San master trackers from the Ju/’hoansi community share their ancient bush knowledge with young learners. They taech them to read the subtlest of clues in nature – from a slightly displaced rock to a barely noticeable scuff in the soil – leading them on the trail of a giraffe. This immersive experience fosters a deep respect for nature and the San community, as the learners listen to stories fo a life in harmony with the wilderness and learn survivial techniques and the art of tracking
