Antelope Park

Volunteering with African Impact was a great experience. The work I did was rewarding and the people I met are now lifelong friends. I enjoyed meat prep and research the most. It's sad to leave but I will be back.

We are two friends who have spent four weeks as volunteers on the lion conservation project at antelope park. It has been four amazing weeks and we have never learned and got so many new experiences in such a short period of time! We love that every day is different and we would recommend this to everyone!

Livingtone

I cannot pin point a highlight but would have to be the community and the people I have been able t have the privilege of meeting and sharing knowldedge with. I ahve learnt new skills and taught others skills as well which is the most amazing feeling in the world. I have always wanted to come to Africa and now i have and couldnt be happier with how the trip went. I have a strong intrest in coming back and volunteering again or even wokring with the team here in Livingstone or other locations in Africa in the future. I was really happ to be given the opportunity to go out on medical a a result of my nursing backgrund and see hat the communities needs are .

Girl Empowerment, December 2017

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to volunteer. When I read about African Impact and the Girl Empowerment program, I knew it was perfect for me. I was sure that I was going to have amazing trip, but I had no idea how much I would fall in love with Moshi and the people I met here. Not only did I learn about new culture, but I learned so many things about myself. No doubt this was the greatest experience of my life and I will come back next year. Thank you African Impact for this opportunity and for the amazing work you do.
