I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
There were many exciting wildlife sightings but the most memorable part of the vacation was being with Mark, the project leader, who was highly knowledgeable about the natural world as well as organising a varied and interesting programme.
To be prepared to engage fully with all the activities arranged. A pair of binoculars would also be helpful
It definitely supported conservation and maybe made the village more aware of the importance... (more)Tessa Milne-Day
Staying with the local tribe in the jungle was the most memorable part of the vacation...10 out of 10. (more)Jennifer Beard
Learning about and working with the animals at the wildlife centre at Matang; tribal-style living deep in the rainforest, and the guides' ability to source food from nature with fishing spear and machete - and much, much more. (more)Hanne Samson
Being in a group of mostly 20-somethings was a wee window into their world!
Handling the monkeys was pretty extraordinary!
Just be prepared to get dirty and for quite physical work.
Yes we were directly looking after animals.
It was a very interesting experience and we both learned a lot. But I think my 'roughing it' days are over; I was really glad to get to a nice, clean hotel at the end! (more)Mela Greenslade
