Memorable parts? The people I met definitely made my trip unforgettable. Tips? Just to relax and enjoy. Local benefits? I think so as I collaborated in a very nice project for children in there and tried to be as environment friendly as possible. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Raquel Orcajo Miranda

My whole time at the reserve was so incredible with thrills everyday from hurtling along dirt tracks to see elephants, watching porcupines and honey badgers battle right next to camp to the first time you lead a class by yourself. (more)Deirdre McClean

Find out more about volunteering with children by reading these volunteering articles.

If you’re planning a volunteering trip, whether it’s a 3 month volunteer placement in a remote corner of the world or a weekend somewhere closer to home, it’s always good to know what to expect and the best way to do things. Our friends at people & places have helped us to write this guide on responsible volunteering. Responsible volunteers are more likely to be a positive presence, a source of inspiration and empowerment. Poorly prepared volunteers who impose their own agenda and cultural norms, failing to include local people in decisions, can leave behind more problems than they solve, making life even tougher for economically poor people. Let's start at the beginning – you’re already committed to responsible travel and now you want to volunteer, but how can you be sure of being a responsible volunteer? Read their advice in this volunteering with children article.
