    So many cute kittens here! Shared a room with 9 other girls, the air con in our room would short circuit the whole block so spent 10 days getting drunk just so I could pass out in the heat of that room haha! The bar was excellent, I learned to really hate Smirnoff ice and love savanna cider! I got pretty good at fusball, or so I thought, and was first on the microphone for karaoke on night 1!

    What to expect in a third world country

    Reviewed Feb 2, 2013

    With a group of 30+ young travelers the accommodation was suited to our travelling needs (sufficient dorms, common area for eating- meetings etc, and of course a great pool and bar!) sure the dorms were not in the best state for hygiene (cleanliness) or security (door locks), and most nights those who waited too long would miss out on running water to shower, but for a first time visiting a third world country with a big volunteer group this is what I expected. The staff at BIBS were all very friendly and by the end of our stay we were saddened to leave the community we had grown so fond of. If I was to ever return to Saint Lucia I wouldn't hesitate to stay at BIB's again and would recommend it for anyone else travelling there (would also recommend it be with a group of people however) However the area I thought was quite safe close to shops and plenty of restaurants. Great stay!

    ... the water depth. Hippos do not swim but walk along the bottom. If you can see their heads out of the water they are standing on the bottom. The shallows were a long way out into the estuary. Two Goliath herons, grey herons and darters were on the sandbanks.
    The Benghazi Loop is no longer a loop, a bridge across swampy ground collapsed a few years ago and has never been mended so you have to drive to the end and turn around and retrace your route. As ...

    ... we will take a walk in one of their parks. We start walking and you get a feeling you are walking in a rain forest. Lots of different kind of trees with limbs hanging down and small and large bushes, and some with flowers. As we are walking we hear all kinds of birds chirping and it feels very peaceful.
    Our next stop is the estuary boardwalk. , The boardwalk stretches on and ...

    Admin day today. Late start (8am). Got up at 6 and enjoyed shower watching sunrise. Jungle Oats and a cuppa continuing to watch sunrise. Went to turn switch to generator as I heard it running as Axel came running in to do same and turn kettle off on gas stove as running out of gas. Turns out we still have another gas bottle but it's meant to last a month and it's only been 2 weeks. Typed in camera trap, odometer and animal sightings into databases. ...

    In Pursuit of Painted Dogs

    When considering the wildlife of Africa, the 'Big Five' are a must see when visiting the continent. The term 'Big Five,' which includes elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos and buffalo, is actually a hunting reference. Bagging any one of the 'Big Five' in Africa, especially in colonial times, was an obsession which eventually brought these (and many other) species under tremendous pressure, and even close to extinction, especially when faced with 150 ...
