Every two to five years lasting for 12 months sometimes much longer, El Nino would visit parts of the planet. This causes parts of Africa to receive more rain than usual and other parts to become very hot and dry.  Madikwe as many other areas have been expensing a very dry year with only 180mm of rain sins September. Last year this time we have already received over 500mm.

But we know that this planet is no ordinary planet.

Believed to have originated from a mass explosion long before anything was, bits and pieces started to come together to form what we know as our soler system. Planets started to take shape as gravity pulled more particles and simple single celled microscopic organisms changed a toxic environment into a place where life could flourish. Life came from water to land and adapted to all that the planet threw at the new inhabitants. Wind, heat, water, ice ages, meteorites, fire, heat and cold has shaped the natural world we see today. This planet is dangling in the solar system with no manmade infrastructure keeping it there. This planet is incredible, and nothing will destroy it.

As humans we don’t enjoy seeing animals and plants suffer but that is what has shaped the natural world we love today.

Point is, Madikwe’s residents are being forged in the heat of a raging fire but once completed would be stronger species afterward.

The weather on this planet is unique and has not been the same sins the birth of it. We are the generation to watch it change again. Forcing the inhabitants being human, amphibian, bird, or plant to adapt for the better.

We have reached the end of a year and we exited to see what the new year holds.

Mateya’s doors are open year-round, and we hope to see you soon and take you on a journey through Madikwe to see what it takes to survive in this tough ecosystem.

Until next time
