Memorable parts? Monitoring and tracking the wild dogs was a most memorable experience. We'd get up early in the morning and sit in the back of an open jeep and roar off to the last sighting. It was winter. It was cold. It didn't matter as it was a big adventure and the not knowing would we find them or not? Waiting and watching for the next time. Really great fun. Tips? For the winter, take lots of warm clothing layers as you can peel off as the weather warms up. Follow the list... (more)Keith Costelloe

Memorable parts? My last cage dive. We had one large female shark who did a slow pass right next to the cage. You could see her blue eye moving and focusing as she had a good look at what was going on inside our cage. Tips? I would recommend adding a few extra days on either side of the project so that you can explore Cape Town and do any additional activities that you haven't yet had the chance to fit in. The longer you are there, the longer your "to do" list will get. Local... (more)Annabel Marriott

Memorable parts? Going on a horseback safari and getting only six metres from a wild giraffe!! I also loved being so close with the monkeys in the centre Tips?

It definitely benefited the sanctuary. Whilst I was there, there was only myself as a short term volunteer and four long... (more)Carrie Hogan

But I guess the most memorable thing was the safari we went on. We were taken by Francois, who is the husband of the woman who runs the education project, and he was the most wonderful guide you could imagine. Too many highlights to list - it was pretty much perfect. As a fabulous, trip - I think the most memorable holiday I have ever been on. (more)Jane Howes

Memorable parts? Tips? Local benefits? Overall rating? Poor. Not much meaningful work. It was not well organized in keeping volunteers busy. There were lots of occasions when we ran out of jobs and were told to wander around and look for things to do. Myself and my grandchildren were extremely disappointed. We had a family meeting and left early. Still a bad taste in our mouth. After staying there I felt that the fee charged was excessive. John Brown. (more)John Brown
