This trip was the best in my life.
I learned so much about the African wildlife. The African dream team organized so much trips and made it possible for us to see so many attractions in this part of South Africa. My 8 weeks stay was never boring. And the from the beginning you felt like a part of the family. Because of the jumping and dressage lessons every kind of rider can visit this program. When you get riding lessons, the horse and The lesson will be adjusted to your level. And it never became boring cause every day you make different things with the horses. Every Wednesday the whole group make a excursions to a different place what volunteers would line to visit. And every second Thursday you be a part of the outreach, to help streetdogs and poor families with their dogs. The Thompson family always try to make every wish of each volunteer or internship possible. I really can recommend this program to every volunteer and internship who wants to meet lots of new friends and learn a lot about horses and the South African nature!!

I think this program is perfect, and there is no way to make it better!

I enjoyed six weeks at the ADHS program as a volunteer and it was such an incredible time there. No matter how much experience you have with horses or the african wildlife, you'll be warmly included to the team or rather to the ADHS family. Everyone there is open-minded and interested to learn more about the different cultures, habits and opinions from all over the world.
The days are filled with a lot of time at the stables, where everyone can train his skills by getting lessons in dressage, jumping or groundwork, or you just enjoy the amazing nature during an outride. It never feels like work, because it's always so much fun with the people around.
The other focus of the project is the sharing of the big knowledge about the wildlife. You learn so much about animals and their behaviour, the special plants, the importance of water and the consequences of the human acting for the nature.
All in all it was just an amazing experience for me and I can just recommend it to everyone!

I came to African Dream two times already because we always had the most amazing time. To experience the african wildlife in the bush, driving around, just sitting around the fire and watching the animals or horseriding through the bush is such a special holiday. You will learn a lot about the wildlife on game drives through Jejane Nature Reserve or the big Krüger National Park with Ryan or Christelle. At the stables you can work with their brilliant horses and you learn a lot from Traci and Shannon who have a huge knowledge wehn it comes to horses. Traci and her dream team are the most amazing people, they make everyone happy everyday. The only sad thing is that you will miss this place everyday back at home. Thanks for letting us live with you guys in this wonderful place!

What would you improve about this program?
It's already perfect, just stay like this and everyone will love it!

I can't recommend this program more. You have the opportunity to work on flat work and jumping as well doing outrides into the African bush. In addition you have the opportunity to do bareback riding and learn natural horsemanship skills.

In addition to the fabulous horse riding you also get involved in the local community through animal outreach programs, social events and becoming part of the African Dream family from the moment you arrive.

Living on a reserve open with Kruger each day you have fabulous wildlife sightingsof the Big 5 and many more at the outdoor kitchen.

I have made fantastic friends from all around the world. My only advice is to say "yes" to everything on offer to really get the most out of your time..minimum booking of 3 weeks recommended; once there you will want to stay forever!

What would you improve about this program?
Then only way that this program could improve is for the participant to stay as long as possible!!

This place is one of the most special places in this world. So many wonderful people that let you become part of their family and friends. I can't even tell what the most amazing thing was, because how can you compare beautiful excursions (Kruger, Blyde River Canyon, ...) with living in the middle of the bush with seeing giraffes and zebras on an outride with the opportunity to ride so many amazing horses with just having wonderful times with the other girls hanging around? On the other hand, as much as they try to make your stay as much fun as possible, you get so many informations and knowledge about the country and also get to see the problems in South Africa. This part changed me very much.
So in the end I came back with having friends from all over the world and thousands of beautiful memories.
