Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

A Mountain to Dream On

Heather Douglas, Kelly Hammond and friend,
Barranco Wall, Kilimanjaro
On top of Africa, slogging up Kilimanjaro, our friends on the Dream Mountain Climb to raise funds for Habitat to Humanity, are on Day 5.  They've struggled up the brutal Barranco Wall, an 800' extremely steep scramble made even more extreme by pouring rain. 

Although  they only climbed for four hours,reports were that  it felt a lot longer! It was the promise of a hot lunch that kept them climbing, arriving at Karanga Camp (4100m) around 2pm.

They are climbing slowly, to allow time to acclimatise to the altitude. It's going to be 8 days getting to the top... and this is Day Five.
