African Impact Reviews
Antelope Park Review
Submitted by mg - Montreal Canada | March 25, 2017
I really enjoyed my time at Antelope Park. The staff and other volunteers made the experience a lot of fun.
It was interesting to learn about lion conservation and what challenges they are facing. It was also very interesting to be able to come close to and interact with the lions and elephants. However, like in a lot of other tourist attractions in Africa, the elephants are tame (can do tricks, be ridden, etc.) and lions cubs are bred for human contact. I would suggest that future volunteers do some research and inform themselves on what they are getting into.
Community Volunteer with added extras :)

The whole experience far exceeded my expectations. Whilst I was the oldest volunteer on the project for a while I hugely enjoyed the social aspect of the project and have made life long friends with some of the other volunteers. I have experienced things that I never in my wildest imagination would have thought that I could achieve. I rode a horse for the first time in 40 years following excellent instruction from Ted and during my ride I got up close and personal with giraffes - a life long dream of mine. I cannot describe the feeling when walking with a lion for the first time. I very often lay in bed at night thinking "I cant believe that just happened". The work on community was fulfilling and I really felt that I could make a difference in some of the projects.

An Unforgettable Experience
Submitted by Harriet Scragg - Brighton United Kingdom | March 24, 2017
From all the pre-departure information I was confident I was going to have an amazing time. However it didn't prepare me for how truly inspiring and incredible it was going to be. No day is the same, in fact wildly different, one day you are focusing on a tiny insect, the next a huge elephant. I have learnt so much about photography in general that I can use in all kinds of situations from Tim and Sam. I have also gained so much knowledge about the wildlife in Africa from all the guides, the amount of information they hold in their brains really is mind boggling.
A Life Time Experience!
Submitted by Camila - Sao Paulo Brazil | March 24, 2017
When I decided to come here I had no idea how things were going to be. It was my first time volunteering and I had only 2 weeks to be here, so I decided put all my heart into the work I was doing and make the best out of this experience.On the last couple weeks I experienced so may things and learned so much, that I can't even put it down into words. I just feel really really blessed to be a part of this. I'm very amazed by how much I got involved into this project. There are still so many things I have to learn, and there are still so many things I can do to help the work that is being done here. It was my first time with African Impact, but definitely not my last.
