Two of BV’s previous volunteers are featured on Caroline Gosney writes about how she took a rather unplanned gap year, after she didn’t get the grades she wanted for uni, which worked to her advantage (she found us)– “I went to Madagascar alone, although I met other volunteers at various airports along the way so the whole experience was less daunting. Leaving your family and friends for two months to go somewhere that has no mobile phone reception and email only once a week is terrifying but is a truly valuable experience as you learn pretty quickly to fend for yourself.”

Laurence Thackwray, deciding he needed some proper time-off from studying, found BV– “[Blue Ventures] appealed to me instantly because of the number of different activities that are covered in each expedition. Scuba diving, teaching English, Baobab excursions, science training, pirogue sailing, further scuba diving training and a whole host more, all in the exotic location of Madagascar.”
