Endangered wildlife conservation in South Africa
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
This was so much more than a holiday and I'd book again within a heartbeat. (more)Sharon Williams
It is really hard to decide of many of the memorable and exciting experiences on this holiday which one stands out the most for me. Everyday it seemed that I saw something different in the bush, unexpectedly two male cheetahs appeared one morning, then there was the cheetah with her cub, there were rhinos and rhino babies, one interesting experience for me personally was a close encounter with an Assasin Bug(reduviidae, heteroptera). (more)Cathy Bisset
The most memorable part was all the time we spent in the bush - at least 10h per day. To see the other side of the safari - i.e. not being in a traditional tourist vehicle. (more)Karin van Volen

Eating my lunch watching the bears being bears was the most memorable! A wonderful experience which combined living in a city with the rural component as the sanctuary was 45 minutes from the town. (more)Mary Motteram

Meeting the bears and being able to really make a difference to their day-to-day lives with enrichment, feeding and cleaning; some of the things we were doing (such as enrichment to keep the bears active and happy) wouldn't get done unless we were there to help out! (more)Heather Reynolds
We were so close to the bears and keepers that you feel part of the project rather than just a short stay helper. I think we were really lucky... to have the baby bear (Lola) arrive when we were there too. (more)Anon
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

From

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...

Elephant conservation project with hill tribes in Thailand
From
£290
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Every moment was worth it. Unforgettable experience, just following the elephants every day as they forage and bathe and drink and eat in their natural home, the forests. I think that's the most unique part of going on this tour with the Elephant Community project - every day is different, because every day's "itinerary" is decided by the elephants . The highlight for me was watching the elephants drink from a stream/ mini waterfall. It was amazing to be able to be so close... (more)Cindy Fung

I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets.

I had so many fantastic experiences, and the centre itself was in an idyllic area, on the grounds of a Buddhist temple. One highlight was spotting wild elephants in a nearby national park, after dark. (more)Olly Carney
Volunteer at orangutan & wildlife rescue centre in Indonesia
From
£760
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Defiantly my most memorable part was the interaction with the local people, especially the kid’s classes. The animals were great, however it’s the people that made it special. Tips? If you enjoy a beer after a hard day's work, make sure you organize in advance! You can get beer but it’s in town and about a 15min drive, so suggest being organized. Local benefits? I defiantly feel that we made great progress with the local people. We are still in regular contact... (more)Lauchlan Leishman

Just be prepared to get dirty and for quite physical work. Local benefits? Yes we were directly looking after animals. Overall rating? It was a very interesting experience and we both learned a lot. But I think my 'roughing it' days are over; I was really glad to get to a nice, clean hotel at the end! (more)Mela Greenslade

excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing a large wild male Orangutan eating figs in a tree by the Kinabatangan River - we were so close to him and he looked so relaxed! What a beautiful special creature. Tips? Get fit before going! The machete for me was hard to master and the heat and humidity make physical work more demanding.

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
