Volunteer with monkeys in South Africa
If you love animals you'll love this volunteer work. You can't help but fall in love with them. Be ready for how difficult it is to leave them. To know these lost little ones will be able to get back out into the wild again is the best. (more)Laura Lockhard

Being so hands on with the Vervets and baboons was an amazing experience, as was helping to build the release site for the Vervet troop that was about to be set free. (more)Sara Lee

China holiday, Beijing to Hong Kong
Memorable parts? The terracotta warriors at Xi'an and the Great Wall. Cherry, our guide although very young, was dedicated and gave us great tips and help when choosing restaurants and outings. Our group integrated very well and everyone was on time for going places. Tips? Travel light, but do take toilet paper!! Local benefits? We certainly used local transport (busses, trains and only once taxis). Overall rating? Most enjoyable. The only thing that didn't work out... (more)Sheila Taylor

Shark conservation in South Africa
Memorable parts? My last cage dive. We had one large female shark who did a slow pass right next to the cage.

The longer you are there, the longer your "to do" list will get. Local... (more)Annabel Marriott
