Being together and working with my 2 children - and seeing how thei really liked it.

Book ! Bring old t-shirts and leave the behind, when you return home. Expect long hours, but the time fly. We were glad that we also had a week with vacation in Phalaborwa, so that we also got to see all the other animals ( the big five) i Kryger National Park on different safaries.

We felt that we were helping the monkeys to a better chance of survival. Perfect "hands on" projekt when you are traveling with kids.

Very good and an experience of a life time :-)

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Being chosen by a monkey.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Let it happen... don't force yourself on the animals. They will choose you and they will decide whether to spend their time with you on their terms.

Yes. This is one of the projects where the animals will eventually be set free to spend the rest of their life outside of fences.
