Hi Sofia, it was lovely having you with us and thank you for your very kind words about us! For future prospective volunteers I'm just going to give some context to how far away we are from Lagos as it's a bit open to interpretation from your review! We about a 15 minute drive from Lagos (14km) and there are buses which run from early morning, about 07.30 with the last one returning about 18.30, however they aren’t very frequent! You do have to walk about 40 mins to get to the bus stop though, or otherwise we have a bike that is available to ride to the stop, or some volunteers use the bike to ride to Lagos. On most days someone from the site will be driving to town at some point, so it’s often possible to catch a ride there (and sometimes also a ride back too, although we can’t guarantee lifts, and it’s usually easier to get there then back) and anyone who wants to stay out late either tends to get an Uber back, particularly if there is a group, or take a trip lasting for a couple of days on days off and stay out. However I think the main point is our retreat definitely suits people who are keen and comfortable to be out in nature and hanging out with the community, it is tricky if you want to go to the town super often as we aren’t really geared up for that. All the best!
