Hello everyone!   Camp just never gets less incredible. It’s been our last week in Turtle Cove so we’ve been trying to make the most of everything, but I never want to leave this paradise. Whilst it’s weird to think we won’t be staying much longer in camp, we’re all really looking forward to the… Read More


Hi there! We’ve all had another incredible week at camp but we’re finding it very strange that we only have one more week here before we head off on the boat trip. This week Pete and Will switched to forest,  and Ed and Alex did some diving. There was the ‘church walk’ where you stay… 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


This week, I find myself coming back to the same quote by Earnest Hemingway; “the best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice.

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


I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since the last update! Time has flown by, and while it feels like just yesterday that I had my first lemur encounter in the park, so very much has happend in between. The stunning scenery here never gets old-despite now being here for three weeks, I still manage… Read More


After flights taking us half way across the world and, for many, lasting way too many days to keep track of, landing in Nosy Be felt a little surreal and dream-like. I think we would all agree that since that short boat ride took us across to our Little paradise island of Nosy Komba, time… Read More
