Animal project in South Africa
From
£1,395
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
£829
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
£895
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...

Primate rescue volunteer vacation in South Africa
From
£545
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Going on a horseback safari and getting only six metres from a wild giraffe!! I also loved being so close with the monkeys in the center Tips? You must like dogs as the site is full of them (all friendly of course!!) and not be afraid to get your hands dirty. You will be cleaning up after animals, it's not all cuddles!! Local benefits? It definitely benefited the sanctuary. Whilst I was there, there was only myself as a short term volunteer and four long... (more)Carrie Hogan
Namibia carnivore conservation & research project
From
£1,135
excluding flights
Memorable parts? My most memorable activity was actually my first where I returned a greeting to a baboon as indicated by the guides, I later had to endure a grooming from one of the baboons. The most exciting part was heading to the Big Daddy sand dune in Sossusvlei. Kind of what I always imagined an adventure to be. Tips? Two weeks is not enough, to get the most out of your time at this project you'll need to be there at least a month and then there's the other sites to consider.... (more)Stephen King

From
£600
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Our experience volunteering with the operator was unique and fulfilling. We had the opportunity to work with Tanzanians in schools and health centers, get to know the local staff and help a little with a building project, all of which were memorable. Tips? Be aware that the lodging is not luxurious (cold showers), roads are rough and dusty. Project sites are often far apart, so a good amount of time is spent in the Land Cruiser. The staff was very attentive to our... (more)William Unger

Memorable parts? Without doubt the safari we went on to the Addo & Scotia parks but spending time playing with Serval Cats whilst volunteering at the African Dawn Wildlife Project was a close second.

£845

Memorable parts? Seeing the elephants up close and personal nearly every day. Tips? Be prepared to work hard. Local benefits?
