Reviews for Volunteer at orangutan & wildlife rescue centre in Indonesia


review 18 Apr 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Defiantly my most memorable part was the interaction with the local people, especially the kidís classes. The animals were great, however itís the people that made it special.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If you enjoy a beer after a hard day's work, make sure you organize in advance! You can get beer but itís in town and about a 15min drive, so suggest being organized.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I defiantly feel that we made great progress with the local people. We are still in regular contact with each other on email and facebook and google translate does wonders! The concept behind this project is really well thought out and itís a credit to the organizers.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

As this was my first volunteering experience, I donít really have anything to benchmark it off. My friend who came with me said that it was like the "Hilton" of volunteering. Couldnít say we really roughed it to be honest, the accommodation and food etc was fantastic.
