WE don’t get to take part in many events from the bush, so when the Olympics rolled around , WE thought it was the perfect opportunity to be part of something that was happening world over! WE couldn’t get to Rio so WE decided to host our very own Bush Olympics, fondly called bushlympics.
WE had an opening ceremony befitting of the Greeks – introducing each crew member donning their flags, the flame was lit and the games soon began.
The competitors met challenges with a surcharge of energy and camaraderie. In true Olympic spirits , WE participated in competitions that involved us being ‘ FASTER , HIGHER, STRONGER’. The races against time and each other were tough and all eggs but one met their fate.
On Sunday 21ST August, WE will be celebrating the end of the Olympics. The sunset Safari will be met with the final contest: The Ranger Race.James and Brent will get a point for ‘anything with a heartbeat’ and the rules are as follows:
1. Creature must have a heartbeat
2. Must be visible on camera
3. Quantity does not matter – One point will be given for each species
4. First sighting of the season receives two points (eg.Wahlbergs Eagle )
5. The race will commence at 15:00 CAT and end at 17:00 CAT.
6. Camera operators may facilitate in spotting
To end off our Olympic celebrations WE will announce the winner of the Ranger Race as well as award the crew competitor who received the most amount of points during the Bush Olympics. Join us as WE celebrate our various countries efforts , the joys of friendly competition and most of all our Crew Camaraderie!
Delightful! Faster Higher Stronger
Looking forward to this. I so enjoy seeing what goes on off the drives too. Keep up the good work in all you do. It's great meeting the ones that rarely are seen on drives or those we never see. Would like more behind the scenes with all the staff.
Good luck, and may the winner share the 'Gold" in good sportsmanship.

Sounds fun. Hope those of us that cannot watch during the festivities they can enjoy seeing it all on Facebook.
