Great experience

The past six weeks have been an amazing experience for me. It has been a good combination of volunteering and helping the poor people in communities, and holidays. You really get a good idea of what life in Zambia is like and at the same time, you have enough free time to do other things you like. In the meantime you make really good friends with the other volunteers, it was amazing!

Lionshouse in 5 weeks

The ambiance in our house was great. A lot of lovely people, with the same mission + lovely team of African Impact. The beds and rooms can have a touch more for comfy nights. But it's was okay for my 5 weeks her and it's always different then real home.
I feel said to leave because all of my homies are great, also the staff members from AI, they let you feel this is your second home. And they are around you for 24/7 if you need something. I came alone to capetown but i'm never feel alone in this house with so many people around me.

In love with Zimbabwe

I had a really great experience volunteering at Antelope Park. I felt like I got the best of 3 worlds. I was able to learn about conservation needs and spend time with the beautiful animals of Africa, commune and help with the locals and find out what wonderful people they are, and lastly I was able to meet volunteers from all over the world and build new friendships and learn from them.
