Hiking with Lauren



Lauren Kaminskas has come from America and fell in love with our country. A few years back she successfully opened her own Hiking business “Mother City Hikers”. Her Circle assistant Amanda Mapanda, a young candidate attorney originally from Zimbabwe shares the passion of hiking with Lauren, so they teamed up to give 6 pre-teen girls of St Georges Home an experience for life.

Lauren and Amanda took the children out once a month, sharing with them the beauty of Cape Town along some of the most rewarding hiking tracks this city has to offer. There they learned about their environment, the plants and animals and their history, about responsible hiking as well as persevering through tougher physical excersice.
Lauren managed to have a rucksack, a water-bottle, deodorant, socks, sunscreen and other hiking goodies sponsored for each child - as well as a healthy lunch for every outing!
