Moving Up in the World - New GVI Base

This week saw the completion of our new base hut! Hurrah! The bathroom has been completed, the wood has been stained with insecticide to kill those pesky little critters, railings have been installed, a veranda built, and electricity put in.

A busy week for volunteers. Today volunteers moved all our stuff to the new base hut from staff house and chat’s house, which had been our base hut for the last three weeks. We have made our new base hut homey by hanging maps, pictures, and elephant info on the walls. After moving, volunteers enjoyed an afternoon of relaxing at base hut and marvelling at the spectacular view. Everyone is really excited about settling in to our new base hut!
