Hi, we’re Margo and Paolo.

Join us as we visit South Africa!

South Africa is at the southern tip of Africa. Almost 19 million children live there!

Many animals live in South Africa. The elephant, cape buffalo, leopard, lion, and rhinoceros are called “the Big Five.”

Soccer is the most popular sport in South Africa.

Children and adults love to play a game called mancala. It’s a counting game where you move pebbles, seeds, or marbles from one cup to another. It’s one of the oldest games in the world!

Pap is a popular food in South Africa that’s made from ground corn. People eat it for breakfast with milk and sugar, or for dinner with meat or tomato stew.

There are miles of beaches in South Africa! From this beach you can see Table Mountain, a famous landmark near the city of Cape Town.

This Primary loves singing time!

Meet some of our friends from South Africa!

I love playing with my little brother, Zinathi. It’s nice to spend time creating memories with my family. It makes me look forward to spending eternity together.

I love being a member of the Church because I learnt that Heavenly Father has a plan for me, and that makes me happy.
