SAFARI - Have you ever thought about what it means to go on a “Safari” – do you know where the word comes from and what it means? The modern word we use today is from the Swahili language of East Africa but it actually has Arabic origin. The Arabic meaning was ‘to travel’ (safara). In the more modern day it translates to “journey” in Swahili; and so we journey together through the bush on a SAFARI.
Did you know that ‘Journey’ is also the collective noun for a group of moving giraffe? But what if they were standing still? How would we refer to them then? Comment below if you can tell us #askariwcp
