From
£769

The contact with these very social baboons was the most memorable part of our holiday. Sometimes they play like crazy, sometimes they just like to be close and sleep so deeply when you hold them in your arms. (more)Karsten Georges
An amazing experience. Would recommend to anyone who loves animals and is willing to work hard. (more)Shannon Hiltabrand
The highlight was sitting on a stool in the babies enclosure and having the privilege of a baby baboon sitting on my boot working out how to undo my shoe laces, a 'cuddle' of baby monkeys holding... (more)Gill Stevenson

Definitely worth doing! The type of work and your experience with the organisation depends a lot on the project you’ll be involved in, so familiarise yourself carefully with the info they provide beforehand to know what to bring (more)Alexandra Bergholm

Memorable parts? The fantastic wildlife viewing Tips? Make sure you take some cold and wet weather clothes. It is freezing cold in the mornings and evenings in the safari truck Local benefits? Yes- The Mara conservation system benefits both the local people and the wildlife and this is funded by visitors Overall rating? The whole holiday was great (more)Linda Gould
Shark conservation in South Africa
From
£829
excluding flights
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

5 I couldn't of had a better time. I truly had the time of my life, I felt at home, happy and really didn't want to go home. It seems crazy now to think its all over but this whole experience couldn't have been much better. Best decision of my life. (more)Kirstin Runcie
A fabulous experience and I would be keen to return. (more)Mark Milligan
Primate rescue volunteer holiday in South Africa
From
£545
excluding flights
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? You must like dogs as the site is full of them (all friendly of course!!) and not be afraid to get your hands dirty. You will be cleaning up after animals, it's not all cuddles!! Local benefits? It definitely benefited the sanctuary. Whilst I was there, there was only myself as a short term volunteer and four long... (more)Carrie Hogan

It was AMAZING! (more)tracy ciotti
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
Working with all of the animals and children, and meeting wonderful people were most memorable - the whole experience was memorable and exciting. The trip well and truly exceeded my expectations. I would happily recommend it to anyone. (more)Thérèse Hutchins

The most memorable part of the holiday was being so close to such amazing animals and being accepted by them. Preparing the enrichment birthday treats was fun and creative and then feeding it to an individual elephant was wonderful (more)Jane Stoyles
Fantastic!.... The whole experience was very good (the organisation of the trip, the travelling itself, the people...) but of course being able to spend time with these amazing animals was the highlight of the holiday and possibly of my last few years as well. (more)Darina Brejtrova

From

Memorable parts? Without doubt the safari we went on to the Addo & Scotia parks but spending time playing with Serval Cats whilst volunteering at the African Dawn Wildlife Project was a close second. Tips? If you are volunteering - you might be a bit overwhelmed when you first arrive - give it a couple of days and you will love it. Local benefits? I hope that our small contribution in volunteering did help with the welfare of the birds and animals they keep, places like... (more)Beth Sanders

Game capture and relocation in South Africa
From
£1,595
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Tips? Be prepared for lots of down time. The Game Reserve I was placed in had very little going on. We basically did game drives with a little telemetry thrown in. Other reserves had more activities, including camera traps and attempted captures. Request a reserve that has more going on. Local benefits? Not really. The monetary contribution of my involvement did help fund monitoring and research activities. My actual presence wasn't required for... (more)Terri Weist
Animal rehabilitation project in South Africa
From
£1,395
excluding flights
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
