With the sun shining and the temperature rising in Chamonix, our Overland students hiked up to the Merlet animal park. All the mountain animals were there in abundance, Ibex, marmots, chamois and lots of deer.
The students had a great walk in the park followed by a little quiz. They learned the ‘French names’ of the animals and were lucky enough to see all of them. The marmots were taking a nap early on, but with a little patience, the group managed to see them in the end. During the visit, the students got to meet with another French group their age, and had the possibility to use their French and to chat.
