This volunteer experience was like no other. You are able to interact with the local communities and work together to support and encourage growth, development and change for the future. The staff are wonderful - you are welcomed with open arms and feel at home as soon as you touch down in the country.
Bring a water bottle, book, sunscreen, small purse for coins and always try and carry small notes.
The program can be flexible depending on what you would like to do, so if you come with an idea of how you would like to create positive change for the community then this will be productive. It is also useful to ensure you raise funds before you begin the project.
The chimpanzee tracking and mountain gorilla tracking is an incredible experience.
The local food is amazing, I miss Joyce's cooking everyday :)
