It really is unbelievable that the boat trip is upon us already! I’m definitely not ready to say goodbye to our two 6 weekers when we get back from our voyage but we’ll be sure to make every last second memorable for them both: Nicole, whose endless kindness reaches both locals and volunteers, and Zoe,… 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.

I decided to join the trip to Madagascar for the end of my Gap Year starting on 16th July with 15 other travellers. As soon as I found out I was accepted for a place with The Leap I was overjoyed! I was very lucky as I knew the places were being booked up really… Read More

Today Holly and I said our final goodbyes to turtle cove and all of the amazing volunteers on Nosy Komba. The past 10 weeks have gone by in a blink of an eye! I can’t even begin to explain how grateful I am to have had this experience especially getting to share it with a… Read More
