Fun and curiosity was written all over their faces as Mabathoana High School from Lesotho toured around Durban on Tuesday.
This group of grade 11 learners was spotted walking around the Durban CBD admiring the beauty of the town.
They began their day at one of the city’s museums where they learnt about the history and animals that are not found in Lesotho.
Mamotsabi Ncholu, a teacher at the school told Journalismiziko reporter that the trip is an educational excursion with an idea that learners learn about their history, science and geography subjects.
She said, “South Africa is different and a more interesting country that has things that we don’t have in Lesotho, especially the ocean and our learners are very excited to spend their time at the beach.”
Maphoka Mahlomela, a grade 11 pupil could not hide her excitement. She said that the trip was meant for learning purpose but they are also having fun observing the beauty of Durban.
“South Africa is bigger and has more people than our country which is why we find it interesting,” she said. “We have seen Blue crane and Springbok which are the animals that are not found in Lesotho.”
Geography student, Thabo Mabetoa said that Durban is indeed a warm place to be in any time of the year. The ocean attracts a lot of tourists.
“I hope to have more trips to South Africa in the future, unfortunately our tour will last only for a week and I wish it can be extended,” she added.
