Madagascar conservation volunteering holiday
From
£845
excluding flights
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
£1,340
excluding flights
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

From
£600
excluding flights
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

From
£600

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

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

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?

From
£1,895

Memorable parts? The opportunity to see and feel a different culture. Launching the boat into and out of the water Tips?

In some way, I picked up a lot of garbage along the beach... (more)Susanne de Montreuil
