HM Carl XVI Gustaf meets Scouts at Hawequas

HM Carl XVI Gustaf visits the Guguletu Scout Centre

68 Baden-Powell Fellows and guests attended the World Fellowship Event that took place from 19-22 April 2007 in Cape Town. The most distinguished guest was His Majesty the King of Sweden.

The guests were welcomed at a sunset function at Appleton on Signal Hill, had a tour of the Cape Peninsula and a walk through Kirstenbosch garden. The new fellows were welcomed during a gala dinner at Cape Town Castle on the Friday evening.

Many guests said that the highlight of the event was the visit to the Guguletu Scout Centre and Hawequas Scout ranch. This gave the guests an opportunity to talk to local Scouts about their experiences within the South African Scout Association.

The event was closed with a tour of Robben Island, led by the former Chief Scout, Nkwenkwe Nkomo.
