Making an impact while having fun

The overall experience was a lot of fun and I definitely felt as though I was helping to make an impact in the process. Everyone I met on the project was fun to be around and I always felt welcomed from the start. Some things, such as maths club, I was not expecting to enjoy, but then I was pleasantly surprised when I actually went on the project.

Awesome team

The project was the best experience in my life. Without the nice stuffs and volunteers, the stay here would be less exciting. I really appreciate them. I enjoyed the projects, social activities, and weekends, every moments with the team!

Horses and Lions

My stay at the Antelope park has been really nice. It is a great place to meet people from the rest of the world. You don't only interact with the other volunteers but you will also get to know more about the live of different local people here. Everybody is very friendly and eager to help you. The different handlers take good care of all the animals and want to share there information with you. The general things in camp (food, rooms, activities, etc.) are well arranged. All with all a great place to do some volunteering work.

Hands on Lion Conservation Project

This has bee a truly amazing experience. I have learned so much regarding lion and elephant behavioral patterns and have had such fun walking with these magnificent creatures. I feel so excited about the potential future research of releasing lions into the wild. (you need to read more about this through Antelope Park web site). The accommodation was very comfortable, food good, and it was such fun meeting young like minded people from all over the world, we all become part of a family very quickly. Highly recommended I am 63 yrs young.

Joy

The two weeks of my life. Werking with the lions and Lennart and the guys was a experiens that I will never forget. The inkt thing I missed was that we didn't workshop with clients. All the other community and nature experience completed a great holiday.
Thanx
