I did the South Africa Wildlife Conservation Short Term internship for six weeks in Karongwe private game reserve and it was the best decision I have ever made. The staff are amazing and it was a pleasure to work and learn from them professionally and to get to know them personally. They are all very friendly and are always open to any questions about the environment. The reserve is incredible and you will be able to see and experience things at GVI that you could have never imagined possible from magnificent close ups with the Big Five to spectacular views of birds which cannot be found anywhere else. I would recommend to anyone, whether you want to pursue a career in environmental conservation or not, to come to GVI as you will gain the experience of a lifetime and memories that will stick with you forever. My only regret is that I did not book to stay for longer as GVI creates an environment that you never want to leave and helps to create friendships that will last a lifetime.
