South Africa wildlife reserves conservation expedition
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
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

Health care volunteering in Kenya
From
£790
excluding flights
Memorable parts? It is too early to say whether this holiday was life changing but for me, it was a homecoming as I used to live in Kenya and felt a mixture of feelings - sad at the corruption that exists in daily life at police checks, etc. but most of all humbled at the generosity, dignity and hospitality that I found in and from the locals around the project where I worked. These are people who have very little materially and work very hard to make ends meet and yet there is a joy and... (more)Jane Edington

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? Impossible to choose one single part! Staying in Ratmate village and participating in house building was certainly memorable - whilst this was such a happy and welcoming community, it was both shocking and humbling to see first-hand the scale of earthquake damage in the region and the difficulties they face in re-establishing a good standard of accommodation there. All of the trekking was really enjoyable with perhaps the highlight being the very early morning trek to Poon... (more)Eimear Hannigan
