Meeting the bears and being able to really make a difference to their day-to-day lives with enrichment, feeding and cleaning; some of the things we were doing (such as enrichment to keep the bears active and happy) wouldn't get done unless we were there to help out! (more)Heather Reynolds
We were so close to the bears and keepers that you feel part of the project rather than just a short stay helper. I think we were really lucky... to have the baby bear (Lola) arrive when we were there too. (more)Anon

There was a lot of walking and physical activity so it’s really important to expect to do lots when you get there and probably need reasonable fitness! Local... (more)Melanie Veal

Family volunteering and safari vacation, South Africa

But I guess the most memorable thing was the safari we went on. We were taken by Francois, who is the husband of the woman who runs the education project, and he was the most wonderful guide you could imagine.

Memorable parts? Learning to hunt/catch lionfish. The 3 daily dives Tips? Bring your own equipment, since equipment at reefci isn't well-maintained. Here is what I wrote on another website: The equipment overall was a little tatty - not a big deal - except one mouthpiece on my regulator was broken, which I didn't discover until I was in the water, and a strap on the BCD was broken so that the tank was actually floating perpendicular to me during the dive. These issues were tended... (more)Barbara Mack
