Despite the rainy weather, a dedicated task team set out on an exploratory walk from Phoenix Settlement to Ohlange on Friday 15 November. This followed the inaugural planning meeting held the previous week. The team found that the trail has great appeal and could become both a unique resource for the local community and a big tourist attraction, with many opportunities for local people to benefit. However, there are also problem areas that need to be addressed, including litter, alien invasion, slippery mud paths, and difficult water crossings.
The next meeting will be held on Friday 22 November at Phoenix Settlement 10am to discuss the experience and the way forward. Please leave your comments and suggestions below!
