Hello everybody Here are some of the moments of our new gappers working hard in Camp Amazonia. We are working on a very important conservation project, planting 3000 seeds of Ahuano tree, an endangered species of the Amazonia that is almost disappearing from the forest. Take a look of all the work
Collecting sand for the plants
On the 24th of January, the Aussie Gap team moved from Camp Muhaka to Tsavo. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the staff here and presented with lunch. We were then given a brief overview of the camp and its projects. These included making elephant dung paper, the tree nursery, sanctuary maintenance, Sasenyi School, wildlife monitoring, the bush adventure and lastly the safari.
Another memorable week at Muhaka and lots to be proud of as our Kenya gap year team help complete all the projects that we set ourselves for this year...
It's all systems go with the gap year team at Camp Kenya who are working hard to complete all the projects we took on this year (and playing hard too!)...

"Over the last 10 years, Peace Day has been proved as an opportunity for life-saving activities and action by individuals worldwide. For Peace Day 21 September 2012, Peace One Day is calling for and working towards a day of ceasefire and non-violence - Global Truce 2012 campaign. We hope that this will be the largest global reduction of violence ever recorded on one day – and the largest ever gathering of individuals in the name of peace." - Peace One Day
Work hard and play hard. We love our Gap in Tanzania Program!
The first night we spent in a hotel near Kilimanjaro airport. We all met up the next day and started our long drive down to Tanga. The views on the journey were amazing but a good few hours were spent sleeping. We got to camp bleary eyed 8 hours later and were warmly welcomed by Anderson and the SDX group. Early nights all round!
