ee gallery what have you done todayteaching the teachers

Rule 1: We try to have as few rules as possible, because we want the participants to have as much FUN as possible!

Rule 2: However for the safety and comfort of all living organisms at the AfriCat Environmental Education Centre we have to have a few. . . .

Rule 3,4,5,6,7 & 8: The main rules concern 

BUSH SILENCE:
Please understand that you will need to be quiet moist of the time while in Nature.
The quieter we are, the more wildlife we will see, hear and enjoy!
We also need to be quiet in consideration of our camping ‘neighbours’. Okonjima’s Omboroko Campsite is only about 700m from our PAWS site. The guests camping there have come to enjoy the peace of Okonjima.

 

R.R.R:
Remember the 3 R’s: Recycle, Reduce, Re-use. Try and apply these 3 important words into your daily routine.
PLEASE NOTE: Please place all waste in the correct bin.
All recyclable wastage/excess must be CLEAN please!

 

NAMIBIA IS A DRY COUNTRY:
Don’t waste WATER but drink lots of water. All the water comes from deep boreholes (160 – 200m below) and is clean and safe to drink!

 

ABLUTION FACILITIES:
Respect and obey all instructions relating to the ablution facilities. Especially at night.
These are clearly explained at our 'Ablution Blocks'.
No fires, matches, lighters except in the designated place  . . .  AND NO SMOKING!

 

RESPECT & CONSIDERATION FOR ALL LIFE:
Respect and be aware of all wild animals- big and small! We are visitors in their territory!
NO running away!
NO shouting or calling! (e.g: Kitty-kitty – come, Kitty-Kitty! – this is a BIG NO-NO in nature)
NO throwing stones or squashing any life-form - from a porcupine to an ant!

 

ELECTRONIC DEVICES:
No cell phones | Ipads or Tablets - except for photography.
Although initially, this rule is greeted with horror and dismay, we feel this is a very important rule with allot of positive effects  . . . 

 

ASK QUESTIONS! THINK! ABSORB! HAVE FUN! ENJOY! BE HAPPY!
