Day 12

So the day arrived which I dreaded for the last few day`s , the time to took the volunteers back to the border …. So after the volunteers had a well deserved sleep in , the taxi arrived and after we have packed we took the sandy roads of Mozambique for the last time back…



Day 10-11

After a lazy morning, it was time to do some serious work. Under the watchful supervision of Todd and Frans, we levelled the soccer pitch and gave the jungle gym a splash of red and yellow. We put in a solid day’s work, and readied the community centre for a little celebration with children the…



Day 9

Our second dolphin swim began in deceptively calm waters, which swelled angrily as a strong breeze blew in off the Indian Ocean. The dolphins surfed against the bow of the boat, scattering playfully each time we dived in. Finally, a social pod surrounded us, coming within a metre of Maddy as they shot past. Satisfied,…



Day 8

Finally a cool, cloudy day- the perfect conditions to get some real work done! We headed to the site early again, shovels in hand, ready to get this soccer pitch finished. Mike, Michael, Matt and Maddy (the M crew!!!) shovelled whilst Liana and Jasmine began brightening up the jungle gym that previous volunteers had built. Todd, our…



Day 7

Ahhh sunday, the day of rest! We arose to an omelette and a fine cup of coffee after a wonderful sleep-in. We all wanted to spend our free time in different ways. Most of us  headed down to ‘Durban Curries’ to check out the local cuisine. Maddy and Sally were more keen on checking out the…



Day 6

An early start today in the attempt to beat the sun for a hard days work. Upon arriving at the site we were split up into three groups: Jasmine and Liana continuing on with the planting, Maddy and Sally getting to work painting, and the boys back to digging out a soccer field for the…



Day 5

Today got off to a sad start with Ella’s departure home to Canada. None of us wanted to see her go but despite our poor attempts to bribe her into staying on for another week, we had to say our goodbyes. Bye Ella! We’ll miss you! Now we’re an all Aussie group (here’s trouble 😉…



Day 4

Today all of us woke up to another cloudy day , a good day for working , and after  breakfast the group headed out to the community centre .. And quickly all get into the work ahead, clearing weed along the fence… While others started levelling the “mini” soccerfield for the Kids…. After lunch the…



Day 3

Day 3 An early start at Gamboozini Lodge as every one get ready for the Dolphin swim and not even the weather could dampen the spirits as we had our coffee and headed down to the Dolphin Centre where the volunteers got their gear and a briefing about Dolphin behaviour . After a splashing start…



Day 2

On arrival at Gamboozini Lodge, we had a quick welcome drink and got an overview of what lay ahead of us. We also had a moment for relaxation and spent some time on the beach. Although it was a cloudy day, the water was pleasantly warm, and we had lots of fun in the ocean….
