Reviews for South Africa wildlife reserves conservation expedition


review 23 Aug 2012

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

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.

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

For the winter, take lots of warm clothing layers as you can peel off as the weather warms up. Follow the list as you need everything on it. Don't form cliques. Be open to all. Both the wild dogs and the people you are with are part of the whole experience.

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

Local people were employed, we were in a low impact accommodation. Our payment was a direct contribution to conservation and the monitoring of the wild dogs as other costs were kept low to support the project.

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

It was an excellent experience and much better than just travelling around as you met people and saw wildlife in a natural environment.
