Amazing and unforgettable experience. I left home, feeling like a month was a long stay, and that I would wanna go home after 2 weeks. When I had to leave 4 weeks later, it was the last thing i wanted. I loved it there. I would have stayed for 6 months if i could.

Just amazing!

My stay here in Antelope Park has been amazing, I have met so many interesting, funny and sweet people during my stay. I really felt close to the animals in every different way, and I have learned so much about myself and the animals here in Africa.

Speaking of experience, once you decide to come here, you'll never want to leave again, and once you do - you will start planning your return. My second stay at AP has now come to an end and there is truly nothing better to spend your hard earned money on. The staff, the friends you make, the food and the animals are all the best thing you could wish for. You have officially been warned.

My time at Antelope park

During my 2 weeks at Antelope Park I have got to do so much different things! I love how many animals I have got to meet and interact with, how much I have learned about wildlife and the local culture, and all the people I have met during my time here. I am so happy I got to do this and I would love to come back and be here longer another time.

I enjoyed my stay at Antelope park so much! We did many different types of activities which i've never tried before. Before I came down here I was unsure if the project really was more for lions or the tourists, but now I can see that what we do here really helps the lions population grow!

I really liked staying at Antelope Park, you get everything like food, a place to sleep, new friends and awesome experiences. The staff at Antelope Park are so nice and all the volunteers too! I love that there are so many new things you can try, like walking with lions and elephants and prepping the food for the lions. I am glad that by staying and being a volunteer at AP we are helping the animals, and we are also able to help form and shape the life of the kids and people in Zimbabwe. I truly loved being a volunteer at AP and I love everything they do.

Overall a great experience. Since I am older than the average participant, my only wish was there had been more volunteers my age. I would do it again regardless and maybe bring a friend. Wonderful experience.
