Enjoy Africa!   Our last week of volunteering was in Dar Es Salaam. Here we worked at Calvary Montessori Pre and Primary school where we did teaching, painting and drawing teaching aids. The children at this school were all so lovely and extremely excited when they saw us “Msungu”. The environment created by the staff… Read More


Hey guys!   I’ve now officially crossed the half way point and am closer to home than previously here in South Africa. It’s strange to think that soon I’ll no longer be waking up to African sunrises and elephants, I’m hoping the British summer will hold out until we get home (August 14th) but I’m not sure… Read More


I’m currently writing this sitting in a cafe eating a croissant and having a coffee, feeling very European. Looking outside however, seeing the bright yellow tuc tucs zip around and the various stalls selling ‘maki maki’ t-shirts remind you that you’re in Madagascar. The past week has been great, with the lovely Alex arriving, more… Read More


  The biggest advantage of being a leaper in Madagascar is the scope of opportunity available to you. After 8 weeks here, I’m still trying new things and still furthering the adventure each day at a time.    At this point the only leapers that are left are the “10 weekers”. Everyone else has gone… Read More

It’s been a very busy and fun week for everyone so far I think and with just 2 and a bit weeks left everyone is eager to enjoy every second we have left in this spectacular country. In teaching, Alex, Abbie, Maddie and I passed our first Malagasy test while… Read More


I’m back! Sorry for the delay everyone, but it seems I was finally hit by that inevitable illness this week and spent most of it ordering around the super amazing girls in our Treehouse hut to get me water or wet cloths or even to clean my sick bowl. So this is a big thank… Read More


So this week Spirit decided to live up to his reputation with Ginny falling victim! Having had a great week of galloping through the bush at high speeds, we were beginning to take for granted that anything can happen when riding in the bush.   As we set off to go ‘flying’ as Temba likes… Read More


We have officially arrived in Arusha and are beyond happy to be here. On Friday I landed in Kilimanjaro Airport along with about half of the leapers on this trip. Exhausted from jet lag, we all stumbled through the small airport beside the other adventurers we had flown with and made our way through customs… Read More
