A VISIT TO THE ROWALLAN CAMP AND NGONG RACECOURSE.

The day started on a brighter note with a visit to the Rowallan camp and later to the Ngong racecourse.

The Rowallan camp is situated behind Jamuhuri Park next to Kibera slums. The camp has various facilities has such as swimming pool, hostels,a Christian chapel, camping sites and and world scouts bureau Africa regional office.

The camp doubles as a scouts and training center whereby non scouts can also conduct team building and various activities.

At the racecourse we visited the stables, the O.B.T.S(owner,breeder,trainer and syces) pavilion, parading area and the racing grounds.

The horses stay at the stables with the syces and are taken out for exercising. On the racing day the horses’ health and weight are checked and later taken to the parading area where bets are placed on various horses. The horses are then released to the racing grounds.
