A worthwhile, fantastic experience.

The project was a great opportunity to take part in all aspects of conservation. The work was varied and each day was different. The activities ranged from planting trees, cutting down non-native trees, weeding and putting up fences to game drives, game counts,rhino patrols,watching feeding of the predators, visiting the elephant sanctuary and wilderness walks. The work was carried out in a relaxed manor and all of the staff were friendly. I particularly enjoyed the game drives and it was great when on a night drive we saw the rhinos, really close! Another highlight was visiting the elephant sanctuary where we got to ride, feed and walk alongside the elephants. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and it was good that I could use my time to do something worthwhile.
