Amazing experience!

The two weeks I spent at Nakavango were great! The accommodation was clean and safe, the food was good and the volunteer activities were many and varied. The staff were brilliant and really made Nakavango feel like a home.

Having free weekends allowed other volunteers and myself to make the most of the various activities Victoria Falls has to offer and experience the area as a whole.

Through the program I've made amazing friends and memories, I thoroughly recommend this program to everyone!

A beautiful experience

Going into Nakavango Conservation Programme I had set realistic standards so as to not disappoint myself. Nakavango far exceeded all my expectations. Justine, Dean and their staff are amazing and incredibly lovely. The place is clean and safe. The food is delicious. The other volunteers fun and everyone is very social, always hanging out in the common areas. I loved camping out on Thursday nights. It was such a fun experience to share in as a group. I also really loved when we went animal tracking and did the late afternoon game drives. The weekends were free to go on adventures, and that we all most certainly did and had an amazing time. My two weeks spent at Nakavango were not long enough, but they are two weeks that are so special to me and I will keep all my memories close to my heart.

How can this program be improved?
My one suggestion as I left the program was they needed to offer a heartier breakfast, eggs or some sort of protein. This was a suggestion they reacted to very positively so the change may have already been made.

3 Months I'll never forget

It was pretty awesome. I'd say my highlight was camping and bonding with the guides and other volunteers. The program is worth every penny. The program changed my life for the better career wise.

Honestly speaking there are no words to describe the magical time I had at Nakavango. The memorries and friends made from all walks of life will stay with me for a long time. I can not do justice to the experience. It is one of those things that you have to do to fully understand the magnitude of the situation.

I give the program 10/10

How can this program be improved?
The food was a little too oily at times and there wasn't much varity in the menu.
