Mbola tsara from beautiful Madagascar! 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


After making so many friends in the jungle camp we were sad to leave. However as soon as we got to the seaside we got over this as we saw how beautiful the new place we’d be staying was! Our longhouse was on the beach and we were just a stone’s throw away from sand,… Read More


Arriving at camp, a little later than planned, we were surprised at how nice the tents were and after a quick dinner and a tour of camp we went to sleep. Over the next couple of days we set up camera traps in different areas of the farm to try and catch some footage of… Read More


So today is my last and final week. Though a few of the leaps have chosen to extend I sadly have to return home. Not without a few more exciting and funny stories to tell before the week is out. For example we had yet another visit from the elephants however this time they broke… Read More


So since I lasted posted, we’ve been moving around quite a lot. We had one day in Kuching to restock what we used up in Mentu or what realised we should have brought with is from home. It was great to have a day to ourselves to browse around the shops but probably the favourite… Read More

In Matapalo, there were 7 beloved dogs that… Read More

This week is the last week for Danielle. I think we are all a bit gutted that she is leaving. Her last trip to the community to see the children she gave out bracelets which she almost single-handedly made by herself. She has also been too kind to everyone here, as she has made rocky… Read More


Week three was all about one thing…conservation! The Leapers have worked hard this week, but all for good reason. The conservation consisted of trench digging, the reason for this being that when South Africa gives you weather, it does not do things by halves! When it rains here at Kwa, it RAINS. The intense rain causes erosion… Read More
