Free-time activities

During off time, the volunteer can visit the night club (However, I do not guarantee full security at late night). It is important for the volunteer to note that night time is not the best for anyone. Vigilance is therefore envisaged on the volunteer's part. South West Region where the project is implemented, is generally very safe for all.

In the day like week ends, the volunteer can visit the beach and swim and spend some time with nature. The volunteer can also visit the Limbe Wildlife Center (zoo) and see some animals common to our forests.

All of these activities are at the volunteer's cost. Our beaches are good. There is the Seme beach and others in the West Coast of Limbe. The volunteer who likes to swim in the sea would love to go there during leisure hours - public holidays and weekends.
