Community teaching and weekend lion conservation - AMAZING!

The staff, volunteers and accommodations at Antelope Park were wonderful. I have a heart and a passion for serving communities as well as a huge love for wildlife, with this program I got the best of both! Being able to go out into the local community to teach children and lend support to the drop inn center and orphanage was incredibly rewarding. The community program coordinators at African Impact (this program is through African Impact, GoEco did the booking) encouraged us to jump right in and provided the necessary materials to succeed, I was able to teach a classroom on conservation efforts right away. The lion and elephant encounters on the weekend were an experience I will never forget, especially the night encounter! I walked away with a high level of compassion and knowledge for Zimbabwe, I can honestly say, 2 weeks was not enough!
