Hello from Holland

Hi!

Got this link from a friend 3 days ago and watching since..it's quite addictive Laughing out loud

I've been to South Africa for 6 months to work and study in a Wildlife Park. I finished my exams for Field Guide and am now at FGASA level 1. September this year we went back to SA to visit friends and places.

Together with my husband we've been busy setting up a plant of our company in Kenya. Our core business is plastic (recycling) but we are an international trading company. We've been to the Maasai Mara in Kenya which is also very beautiful.

It's nice to hear the sounds of Africa live now that I'm back in Holland! I haven't seen much animals from the cam yet but I shall keep my ears and eyes open!

I have loads of pictures and movies, also of Kenya. Can I place them on this site?

Hi Eva!

You must have had a wonderful 6 months :!: I lived in PE for a short while in the 80's - did you visit Addo while you were there?

Lol, I opened the link to Shamwari and the lion roared and I was all fingers and thumbs trying to look at the cam :roll: :oops:

Happy Camming

We thought about moving to SA but it's better if we stay in Europe to earn some money and then maybe later on, decide on moving...

Save up your pennies (better than Euro's? Laughing out loud ) and maybe, one day, you will be able to buy your own farm! When that time comes, please remember your new Africam friends (choose me!!!!) who would jump at the chance to visit! Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud

I finished FGASA level 1, so I have my certificate.

Brilliant, and well done!

I have never had the inclination to do the FGASA exams as I am too old, and too cranky, to actually work in the field!

I don't know what the situation is now but, when I was training, non-South Africans could not go any further than FGASA level 1 as they did not want to encourage non-South Africans to work as Field Guides.

Thanks!

It is still that way, although it has been 2 years ago since I got my certificate. But with all the Emplyment Equity Acts, I'm sure they still don't want this.

But to be honest; the salery is horrible... :oops: Smiling
