Lockdown and beyond

Dear Leap Community,

In our 30 years of working in travel we can honestly say the tsunami-like speed, breadth and depth of this latest global Covid-19 virus is like nothing else we have ever experienced and the industry is being pushed to its limits. Week three of lock down and like everyone else we are at home toiling the earth with a frenzied determination to make sense of it all.

As for the "other side" - it will come but it will be different in mindset and the concept of travel a definite privilege. We hope that everyone will travel with a more social and responsible conscience which will let this magnificent globe of ours continue to heal...have you seen the clear waters of the Venice canals and read about the strengthening ozone?

Leapers - current and future, our message is simple - "keep the dream alive”...

For our current teams who are currently on “pause’' – remember we are ready to mobilise should there be a sniff of freedom. If this doesn’t happen pre-university then we will plan some bespoke trips for you all who have had their travel plans put on ice – think big leap here, we’ve got your back and know just what you need.

As for future leapers - for you guys we say make your travels count...we need you more than ever to travel and contribute...especially now when so many communities and projects who rely on volunteers are hurting. Just so you know we are accepting bookings BUT not asking for any deposits until we know how this all unfolds. For those interested in Costa Rica, Colombia, Namibia or Madagascar in January 2021 especially, get your names on the lists early, limited numbers per departure and we predict a surge as everyone will want to travel with a company who has reliable adn influential ground operators to get you out of trouble if need be. No stranded volunteers on our watch. All you need to do is place a normal booking via our website and we will be intouch. Simple.

I also want to take this opportunity to offer our heartfelt gratitude for your continued support. We have received some lovely messages, so thank you. We are here for the long haul and I have reassured our overseas communities that Leap volunteers will be returning as soon as they are able. We are resilient to our core.

Please get in touch we are here for now and always.

Stay well and safe,
