Leap with us to Kenya and find yourself living and working beside the sparkling Indian Ocean at Diani Beach, Funzi Island and then inland in the tropical Shimba Hills.
Brace yourself for brilliant white beaches, world class safari and mega watt smiles, this project has them all by the bucket load!
In all places you'll tackle a fantastic mix of conservation, community + ecotourism projects experiencing first hand the wildlife, the amazing people and not forgetting the dust, sweat + sand while challenging your mind + muscles.
On your time off we can also arrange for you to climb the mighty Mount Kenya, safari across the rolling grasslands of the Maasai Mara or scuba dive in the Indian Ocean.
Why so good?
Because you get to contribute in many different ways in many different places and your thirst for travel is quenched - perfect solution all round.
Travel as part of a Leap team
Volunteering for us is all about all about team work - we find that our Leapers have more fun and are more effective when they travel as a group, rallying each other along and tackling the projects head on to complete in the time available.
We have 4 different teams departing to Kenya each year: Jan, Apr, July + Sept, for 6 or 10 weeks. We put together the teams and hook you all up via Facebook before hand. All you have to do is apply now to book your place.
Average team size is 12, mix girls + boys, from all walks of life, ages 18 - 25.
