Belize wildlife conservation holiday
From
£845
excluding flights
It was a very positive experience being in a country that treasures the natural environment and it is government policy to protect at least 40% of the land for nature. I felt that after 3 weeks I had only scratched the surface of what there is to find out about Belize and definitely plan on returning. (more)Cathy Bisset
Once in a life time experience...meeting all the wild animals was the most exciting part of the trip. (more)Kerry Sedman

Meeting the bears and being able to really make a difference to their day-to-day lives with enrichment, feeding and cleaning; some of the things we were doing (such as enrichment to keep the bears active and happy) wouldn't get done unless we were there to help out! (more)Heather Reynolds
We were so close to the bears and keepers that you feel part of the project rather than just a short stay helper. I think we were really lucky... to have the baby bear (Lola) arrive when we were there too. (more)Anon

Jungle conservation & research, Peru
From

Memorable parts? Getting to spend time walking through the jungle and seeing so many great animals and birds. The best moments were the tree frogs, manu poison frog and the rainbow boa!

There was a lot of walking and physical activity so itís really important to expect to do lots when you get there and probably need reasonable fitness! Local... (more)Melanie Veal

Madagascar conservation volunteering holiday
From

Memorable parts? I can't name that one and only moment I have to say. The whole experience was memorable. Not only the work but also the people I had the pleasure to meet. Tips? I was camping the first time in my life and did some research beforehand. However I did of course made a few mistakes. The next time I would definitely bring a bigger tent and 2 very strong head torches. My tent was ok for 2 weeks but for a longer period it would be to small. A very strong head torch is a...

I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets.

The company I booked with (The Great Projects) were very helpful when spoken to directly. However,they did not give the name of the project (Modisa in Botswana).
