Big five research and conservation project 2017

This project has been one of the best experience of my life. I absolutely adored staying here and working on the project, as well as meeting so many new faces. It breaks my heart that I'll be leaving soon and if i got the opportunity to come again, I'd be on my plane before you could finish counting to ten.

T.I.A

''I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up and was not happy'' -Ernest Hemingway
T.I.A, This Is Africa...it simply is, how can you describe Africa in one word? And add to it meeting new incredible people, saving the world, making a difference, feeling important, feeling happy... how would you summarize all that? You simply can't because it is so close to perfection

Volunteering with Africa Impact in Greater Kruger area

I have been completing this review after a month of my volunteering program ended. This allowed me to get some time to think about the project I registered in from a step away and see it more realistically and objectively. Although I do not rate the program as "excellent" it was a good, sometimes happy, sometimes boring, sometimes busy, sometimes disappointing but definitely it was a time/experience that will stay in my heart for a long, very long time...

African Impact combination project

The accommodation is amazing for a volunteer organisation. Housekeeping is great and the facilities available make the stay even more enjoyable - especially the pool and the boma. Every day is packed full of game drives for research, as well as community projects for the combination project. There is such a wide variety of opportunities available to make an impact here. The weekend trips also allow you to appreciate the surroundings outside of work time.

Great experience

Had a great time staying at Dumela Lodge. The project meets your desires as a tourist while also putting you to good use in service of the environment and local communities. The staff helps create a positive social environment which completes the experience.

African Impact

It was a nice month with african impact. I'm looking forward to come back. Unfortunately the Photography project was not available. I think it is not possible to get informed so late about the availability of your project. The research part was very amazing.
