Volunteer Project 2 – Madagascar

THANK YOU!

Before we provide an overview of our experience volunteering in Sainte Luce, Madagascar, we wanted to firstly thank all those that donated to this cause. Madagascar is one on Africa’s poorest nations and endangered ecosystems. The life expectancy for men is 52 and women is 55. Roughly 12% of people die before the age of 5.

65% of the population in Madagascar fall below the recognised International poverty line of $1.25USD per day.

 

Overland Safari 2 – Zimbabwe

The pool and bar in Vic Falls Rest Camp

The Zimbabwe Diary….

Day 11: Vic Falls Rest Camp, where we stayed for 4 nights, was a beautiful campsite located in the heart of Town in Victoria Falls. Our private room came with a double bed and refrigerator and a shared bathroom.It was a great change from a tent. The campsite was huge. There was a gorgeous pool and sunbaking area. Beside the pool was the bar and restaurant and we had a couple of really yummy meals here, one of which Pete tried ‘Pumba’ (warthog) Schnitzel.

THE TANZANIAN DIARY….

Day 20: Early start this morning, we departed at 4.30am en route back to Kigale where we said goodbye to some of the crew who had only joined us for the Gorilla Trek. We then had a full day driving and crossed the border and by late afternoon we were in Tanzania. Overnight was spent in Sayari Guest House. We have no idea where we got the energy from but even after such an early start, the crew were up for a few drinks and then someone started us off with Karaoke… Singing The Gambler. Many others were keen to take the microphone after that…

Overland Safari 1 – departs from Kenya

We initially chose Absolute Africa because this route. They were the only truck that drove through below Lake Victoria through Tanzania.

Our first Overland Safari was a 32 day tour through Eastern Africa. We travelled from Kenya through to Uganda, onto Rwanda and finished with a week in Tanzania – our last stop being the beautiful Zanzibar. We averaged about a week in each country and although there were some long drive days, our itinerary was jam packed with game drives, nature walks, adrenaline junkie activities, relaxation and many funny moments with our fellow travellers.

We have arrived...

After 4 brilliant days in San Francisco we were back on the road and heading for Yosemite National Park. The drive from San Fran takes around 4 hours or 190 miles and as we arrived around midnight, we conveniently parked our mobile home on the side of a road and waited until morning to begin exploring.
