Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Belize wildlife conservation holiday
From
£875
excluding flights
Working with the zoo keepers was an amazing opportunity to get close to animals and experience the working life of a zoo keeper... very hot and sweaty, but satisfying! (more)Alison Ford
It was a very positive experience being in a country that treasures the natural environment and it is government policy to protect at least 40% of the land for nature. I felt that after 3 weeks I had only scratched the surface of what there is to find out about Belize and definitely plan on returning. (more)Cathy Bisset
Once in a life time experience...meeting all the wild animals was the most exciting part of the trip. (more)Kerry Sedman
Endangered wildlife conservation in South Africa
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
It is really hard to decide of many of the memorable and exciting experiences on this vacation which one stands out the most for me. Everyday it seemed that I saw something different in the bush, unexpectedly two male cheetahs appeared one morning, then there was the cheetah with her cub, there were rhinos and rhino babies, one interesting experience for me personally was a close encounter with an Assasin Bug(reduviidae, heteroptera). (more)Cathy Bisset
The most memorable part was all the time we spent in the bush - at least 10h per day. To see the other side of the safari - i.e. not being in a traditional tourist vehicle. (more)Karin van Volen
Amazing!! Words cannot describe this adventure- over 1500 photos taken and a million memories. (more)Emma Clifford
Elephant conservation in Thailand
From
£450
excluding flights
Loved each second of it. 10/10. (more)Sarah Marsden
My vacation was the best experience of my life, so much so I wasn't ready to leave and got very upset when the time came to leave. I fell in love my elephant Campion and Boonma and his family welcomed me with open arms. Such good hearted people. The experience with them added to my amazing experience and I would recommend anyone try this experience. I would give this experience 10 out of 10 there was nothing I feel could of been better except for me booking longer! (more)Debbie Field
Thoroughly enjoyed - The baby elephant playing-a real privilege to see! (more)Amanda Patrick
Wildlife conservation vacation in South Africa
From
£995
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Working with people who are dedicated, informed and enthusiastic about conservation in a practical and realistic way. And of course, seeing the wildlife as they are meant to be. Tips? Be prepared for it to change your views on life. Local benefits? Many local people were employed in the reserve and the studies that were being carried out influenced how the reserve was managed and that benefited the locals. As the research carried out was the same as the normal... (more)Louise Sexton
Borneo Wildlife Volunteer Project
From
£1,095
excluding flights
Memorable parts? 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. Tips? To be prepared to engage fully with all the activities arranged. A pair of binoculars would also be helpful Local benefits? It definitely supported conservation and maybe made the village more aware of the importance... (more)Tessa Milne-Day
Volunteering Thailand, wildlife rescue centre
From
£599
excluding flights
I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets. Itís hard to say what was the most memorable part of this vacation as there was so much variety and different experiences, itís difficult to decide what was the best part of it. (more)Cathy Bisset
I had so many fantastic experiences, and the centre itself was in an idyllic area, on the grounds of a Buddhist temple. One highlight was spotting wild elephants in a nearby national park, after dark. (more)Olly Carney

Volunteering with bears in Cambodia
From
£675
excluding flights
I loved every second of my trip - the people, the country, the bears I worked with... (more)Louise Bednarz
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
Brown bear tracking in Northern Greece
From
Ä599
excluding flights
It did not have one single highlight -the entire trip was enjoyable. (more)Christine Singer
Seeing a brown bear was the highlight of the vacation but this was definitely the icing on the cake. The friendly people, wonderful mountain scenery, incredible views, amazing walks, butterflies, orchids and peace and quiet made the vacation memorable at all times. (more)Liz Pitt
South Africa wildlife reserves conservation expedition
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Monitoring and tracking the wild dogs was a most memorable experience. We'd get up early in the morning and sit in the back of an open jeep and roar off to the last sighting. It was winter. It was cold. It didn't matter as it was a big adventure and the not knowing would we find them or not? Waiting and watching for the next time. Really great fun. Tips? For the winter, take lots of warm clothing layers as you can peel off as the weather warms up. Follow the list... (more)Keith Costelloe
Animal project in South Africa
From
£945
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Tips? Local benefits? Overall rating? Poor. Not much meaningful work. It was not well organized in keeping volunteers busy. There were lots of occasions when we ran out of jobs and were told to wander around and look for things to do. Myself and my grandchildren were extremely disappointed. We had a family meeting and left early. Still a bad taste in our mouth. After staying there I felt that the fee charged was excessive. John Brown. (more)John Brown
Shark conservation in South Africa
From
£1,207
excluding flights
Memorable parts? My last cage dive. We had one large female shark who did a slow pass right next to the cage. You could see her blue eye moving and focusing as she had a good look at what was going on inside our cage. Tips? I would recommend adding a few extra days on either side of the project so that you can explore Cape Town and do any additional activities that you haven't yet had the chance to fit in. The longer you are there, the longer your "to do" list will get. Local... (more)Annabel Marriott
Madagascar conservation volunteering vacation
From
£795
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I can't name that one and only moment I have to say. The whole experience was memorable. Not only the work but also the people I had the pleasure to meet. Tips? I was camping the first time in my life and did some research beforehand. However I did of course made a few mistakes. The next time I would definitely bring a bigger tent and 2 very strong head torches. My tent was ok for 2 weeks but for a longer period it would be to small. A very strong head torch is a...

This was a wonderful vacation for my granddaughter and myself. If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of animals and local people, we highly recommend volunteering at this wildlife sanctuary and their associate project, Kuti. Well organized and staff in charge who care about their project. (more)Carolyn Anderson
My time at there was fantastic - I would recommend the Center in a heartbeat to anyone wishing to have a conservation-oriented vacation. Work is not too difficult on the whole, and you will have enough spare time to develop solid relationships with other volunteers and otherwise enjoy your time. (more)Ben van Haeringen
Working with the young orphaned animals, helping to provide their day-to-day care, was a truly unforgettable experience. Seeing wild Lions, Leopards, Elephants (and many more) up close on safari was fantastic, surpassing all my expectations. (more)Philip Toole
Malawi volunteering vacation
From
£1,244
excluding flights
Just do it, you won't regret it! (more)Chris Wade
Great from start to finish - the staff, the country, the project, the work - I was sad to leave and hope to go back. I went for the animal work which I really enjoyed but an unexpected highlight of the trip was getting out into the community to see one of their fuel briquette projects. (more)Kat Wendels
A great experience. I got to know some local people and volunteers from different countries and I learned about animal conservation and the social/ economic situation in Malawi. (more)Steve Boud

Conservation & community volunteering in Uganda
From
US $1,515
excluding flights
Transformative, eye-opening and deeply satisfying...Going to a country that was almost the furthest from my mind, staying in a village that you can't find on Google Maps, being immersed in spectacular countryside and doing one of the most personally satisfying projects day in and day out with open, friendly and uncomplicated people. (more)Peter Thoem
The most memorable part of the vacation was being in a community without feeling like an outsider. Everyone was willing to help and also be open about their lives. I loved everything about the experience. (more)Christina Hanazawa
The most memorable parts were the women I met and worked with as a volunteer in Uganda. The women were strong, resilient, courageous, determined and inspirational. They were also welcoming of a white woman from Australia - making me feel one of them as we walked or sat in a circle to meet and explore opportunities. (more)Cheryl Phillips

My top 3 were: 1) Seeing the cheetahs being fed 2) Helping to rear a meercat baby and Clarke a serval 3) All the jokes and banter between the volunteers Tips?

Family volunteering with turtles in Costa Rica
From
£559
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This project and experience was absolutely amazing. As a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children, 8 & 10 yrs old) we decided it was important to not just have a vacation but to do something that would play a part in making a different to our environment for the future. Our 8 year old son, in particular had an interest in Turtles so we decided this would be a great project to work on. We weren't disappointed. The location was stunning, remote (so off the tourist route, which... (more)Simon Wrench

From
£800
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The entire trip was memorable: sleeping in a tent and cooking over open fire, seeing the diversity of life on a daily basis, being immersed in the bush, hearing the roaring thunder bounce off the mountain walls, and doing my part for the conservation of the Thabo Thalo nature reserve. However, I think the most impactful part of the trip for me was when Tara and I went to see a local farmer whose goat herd had been attacked. The fact that we were called at all shows...

Thailand wildlife sanctuary volunteering holiday
From
£889
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Working with the elephants was most rewarding, especially when taking them for walks with a bucket of chopped fruit treats to ensure they follow the volunteers and don't wander off into the forest. They are such lovely animals and we got to know them individually. The baby elephant called Pin was quite a character and quite mischievous. The wildlife part was very varied with so many wild animals (circa 450) and different species to look after. It was also great to meet... (more)Colin Harvey
Volunteer at orangutan & wildlife rescue centre in Indonesia

Memorable parts? Defiantly my most memorable part was the interaction with the local people, especially the kidís classes. The animals were great, however itís the people that made it special. Tips?

Botswana wildlife volunteering holiday
From
£990

Memorable parts? Daily close interaction with lions and wild dogs. Close contact with knowledgable and passionate conservationists. Tips? The company I booked with (The Great Projects) were very helpful when spoken to directly. However,they did not give the name of the project (Modisa in Botswana). As such,much of the information they gave to me was inaccurate and caused problems at the start of the trip. Had there been an emergency or had I had a strong view on what I wanted from...
