I volunteered for 5 consecutive years and cannot stop! Every time and every day I learn something from the very skilled staff working there 365 days a year. Do not miss the chance. This is a real life-time experience and happy to be their ambassador! Go there and get your shoes dirty.

Highly recommended!

This is an excellent project for those wanting to get a taste of life working in conservation. No two days are the same and tasks vary from lion and cheetah walks to wildlife research and veterinary skills. Not only do you gain vital skills from a wildlife base but this project enhances knowledge of Bush lore and ecology. The accommodation is brilliant and the food is outstanding. You would be hard pushed to find a project that beats this one!

How can this program be improved?

Actually cannot find fault!
