African Impact Participant Reviews
Submitted by Nico - Ilac University Vancouver | October 16, 2017
It was an amazing experience in Zambia. I stayed for 6 weeks in Livingstone as a volunteer for the Happy Africa foundation and i will never forget it. So many memories to share, unforgettable moments. It has been something special.

I really enjoyed the project, people, activities, and the goals of the program. It's a great way to see a small part of Africa, especially if you might be new to travelling alone and want a place to call home and people to call family for a while. I plan on coming back to do the other lion project in Victoria Falls, and I'm really excited to see what happens with the upcoming release.

My time in South Africa (Dumela Lodge) has been amazing! I've learned so much about it's nature, the environment, the culture and the people. Also I had the opportunity to share my time with people all around the world, which was incredible. I'll never forget this experience.
Say yes to volunteer work
Submitted by Maudy - Fontys University of applied science | October 13, 2017
Before I left home, I was extremely nervous and was doubting if I even should go or not. Luckily an internship abroad was manditory for me to finish school, otherwise I would have never had this amazing opportunity. When I arrived at the house I was still anxious about what was going to happen, but the people here are really nice and welcoming so that feeling did not stay very long. Also my homesickness dissapeared within the first week. I have never been the outgoing type, but even to those people who are just like me I say ''Do it! Just throw yourself into this experience because you will never forget it''. I've honestly had the best experience of my life here! Not just with the people in the house, but the projects you go to are absolutely amazing!
My stay at Naboisho conservancy
Submitted by adupaix - ENS Lyon | October 11, 2017
Being passionate by wildlife, my stay at Naboisho Conservancy was one of the most interesting moment of my life. Unfortunately it was too short, I stayed only two weeks, but I learned a lot of things and really enjoyed taking part in the day-to)day activities there.

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.
Adventuring in Antelope Park
Submitted by lunaandrea - Rincon Puerto Rico | October 08, 2017
Is hard to ignore the beauty of this place! The animals, surroundings and staff will make you want to stay for ever. I recommend this if you are looking of an escape from reality & love working (hard) with animals.
