review 4 Sep 2011

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Working with people who are dedicated, informed and enthusiastic about conservation in a practical and realistic way. And of course, seeing the wildlife as they are meant to be.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for it to change your views on life.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Many local people were employed in the reserve and the studies that were being carried out influenced how the reserve was managed and that benefited the locals. As the research carried out was the same as the normal game drives there was very little impact on the environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This holiday was a life changing experience and will affect what I do next in my career and attitude to conservation.
