Monday 6th of August marked my final day on the Frontier Tanzania camp. I can hardly believe that I have been here for two months and that my time has finally come to an end. Naturally, this is a very reflective time and I can’t help but think about all the special moments I have had here, the challenges I have faced and the many ways which I have grown as a person.

I have enjoyed my time on Mafia once again. The diving has been thoroughly enjoyable and I have enjoyed learning the fish species as well as carrying out the invertebrate surveys.

I’ve been at the Frontier camp on Mafia Island for one week now and it’s been amazing! Before coming here, I’d never been scuba diving before, and now, it’s only one week in and I’m an Advanced Open Water diver! Over these past four days, I’ve done 9 dives, so it’s been pretty intense but I’ve loved every minute of it.

I arrived on the 1st of May with my brother and was met in the airport by Rama and Jason wearing a Frontier t-shirt. The ride to camp was in a tuk tuk, it was the first time I had properly seen Africa, it really was breath taking. On the first night we went to a local house for some rice and fish which was amazing and we all took the time to get to know each other a little more, later in the evening we had some drinks and went to watch a football game. It was clear to see we were all going to get on very well.
