28: 4 Ways to Make Your Donga Homely Audio Blog

Do you stay in a “Donga” at camp? They can be cold, sterile and un-inviting. This doesn’t help our moods and mindsets, and may contribute to mental health and fatigue issues. Here are 4 tips to help “de-generic” your donga and make it feel more homely…Yes even you blokes can do some of these! A short audio blog with Mad Mumzie’s Muzings on why you should bother, and ways to do it. 


A donga is the word miners use to describe the rooms we stay in at camp. It has other meanings in the dictionary such as a ravine and strangely a penis! This audio blog is about our rooms. One meaning I did find suggests where Donga actually came from perhaps.
