The BLOODHOUND Team are deeply saddened by the news of Mr Mandela's death. Our thoughts go to his family and to our many friends and colleagues in South Africa.
Mr Mandela said 'education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world'. Our project is testament to that idea. We are proud of our partnership with the country, and look forward to the day in 2015 when the world will see an amazing, inspirational story unfold in the beautiful desert of Hakskeen Pan, Northern Cape.

Life for everyone in Bloodhound has become something of a blur. Ask anyone what they were doing two days ago and they’ll have difficulty – the pace is relentless, as one day merges into the next. At my end it’s a blur of invoices, contracts, a few shocks, many new people starting, a few people moving on.
