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

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
Madagascar conservation volunteering holiday
From
£845

Memorable parts? I can't name that one and only moment I have to say. The whole experience was memorable. Not only the work but also the people I had the pleasure to meet. Tips? I was camping the first time in my life and did some research beforehand. However I did of course made a few mistakes. The next time I would definitely bring a bigger tent and 2 very strong head torches. My tent was ok for 2 weeks but for a longer period it would be to small. A very strong head torch is a...

Namibia carnivore conservation & research project
From
£1,135

Memorable parts? My most memorable activity was actually my first where I returned a greeting to a baboon as indicated by the guides, I later had to endure a grooming from one of the baboons. The most exciting part was heading to the Big Daddy sand dune in Sossusvlei. Kind of what I always imagined an adventure to be. Tips? Two weeks is not enough, to get the most out of your time at this project you'll need to be there at least a month and then there's the other sites to consider.... (more)Stephen King

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

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

Memorable parts? Our experience volunteering with the operator was unique and fulfilling. We had the opportunity to work with Tanzanians in schools and health centers, get to know the local staff and help a little with a building project, all of which were memorable. Tips? Be aware that the lodging is not luxurious (cold showers), roads are rough and dusty. Project sites are often far apart, so a good amount of time is spent in the Land Cruiser. The staff was very attentive to our... (more)William Unger

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

Just do it, you won't regret it! (more)Chris Wade
Great from start to finish - the staff, the country, the project, the work - I was sad to leave and hope to go back. I went for the animal work which I really enjoyed but an unexpected highlight of the trip was getting out into the community to see one of their fuel briquette projects. (more)Kat Wendels
A great experience. I got to know some local people and volunteers from different countries and I learned about animal conservation and the social/ economic situation in Malawi. (more)Steve Boud
Lemur conservation project in Madagascar
From
£795

Memorable parts? The very first morning at Saint Luce, we were up pre-dawn and walked down to the estuary. There several pirogues took us across the lagoon to the mangrove waterways and then back again. The round trip was about 3 hours, initially mainly silent except for bird identification, the sunrise added to the atmosphere. Part of the mystery and beauty of Madagascar was revealed on that memorable morning. Tips? Read every bit of information sent out by the agent about ten times... (more)Alison Anderson
Community volunteering in Tanzania
From
£600
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Meeting and working with local people who are enthusiastic and involved in the projects we were working on to improve their everyday lives. The gap between their lives and mine really hit home and it has made me reevaluate some aspects of life at home. Tips? Don’t take too many clothes you won’t need them and they can be washed. Fill your case with useful stuff for the community like hats, flip flops, football shirts (the children love them), socks, bubbles, books... (more)Julie Thomas

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
Elephant conservation project in Namibia
From
£895
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the elephants up close and personal nearly every day. Tips? Be prepared to work hard. Local benefits? The project is a good one -- building enclosures for water tanks to provide water for livestock. Otherwise the elephants drink the livestock water and the locals shoot the elephants. Overall rating? Yesterday, we completed an evaluation form from the organisation in which I provided detailed information about the administrative problems in... (more)Lois Vander Waerdt

Memorable parts? The opportunity to see and feel a different culture. Launching the boat into and out of the water Tips? I was on doxycycline as malaria prophylactic and I had quite a few side effects and had to stop taking it at the time I was there I didn't see very many mosquitos and the dive shop is equipped with a nurse who can do a malaria test and they have the antibiotics if a person gets sick Local benefits? In some way, I picked up a lot of garbage along the beach... (more)Susanne de Montreuil
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
