Great experience with amazing people

this experience changed a lot of things in me. I got to know myself and the world better. I wanted the experience to broaden my horizons, and it definitely did, not only that, but also discovered myself.

Three amazing weeks. Go Go Go!

The most amazing three weeks in Victoria Falls. Accommodation had everything needed. Meals great, projects exciting and the staff here are fantastic. Anna, Evie, Angela, Leonard, Irina, security staff, drivers and even our taxi driver Eddie have help create memories that will stay with me forever. It’s the first time in 12 years that I have travelled on my own and not for one second did it feel like like it. 3 weeks in this incredible place and you can’t help but make friends from all over the world... Even if my English hands up in air dancing was frowned upon (i’ll work on it Evie). I signed up to the lions hands on conservation which was amazing but have also attended a lot of other projects throughout the community. I feel like I now know Victoria Falls. I may have only spent 3 weeks here but I will alway look at it on a world map and class it as my African home. Book it people!

An incredible experience

Two weeks ago, my plane landed at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. I was about to start a one-month placement with African Impact on their Lion Conservation project.
I was nervous. I had just spent six months in South Africa at another volunteer placement. I had met some incredible humans and witnessed some amazing wildlife sightings. I didn’t think anything could top that… Turns out, I needn’t have worried.
I was welcomed with open arms by the staff and other volunteers. All of us sharing a passion for conservation
