Reviews for Zululand conservation project


review 10 Oct 2022

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

Incredible volunteering assisting wildlife monitors and scientists at S African game. Schedule was rigorous and we weren't just tourists. Because we were not the road at all times, wildlife viewing was great and rewarding.

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

This holiday is a commitment to do whatever is necessary to monitor and help wildlife. That is what everyone there is into. Monitoring includes going out int back of a pickup truck at 4:00 for hours (as long as it takes) and doing the same at 16:00 everyday in hot and cold. The casual safari goer might find it too much. Lodging is comfortable and food is what you make yourself. No frills but totally good.

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

Absolutely helped conservation of endangered species and since the park employs and is run by Zulus, the park helps local community. We saw tours to local school kids about wildlife. The kids were wide eyed and excited first seeing giraffes etc.

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

Great perfect for serious wildlife viewing. Great for us.
