SA wildlife conservation trip
Submitted by Cathy Benedict - Leesburg United States | July 06, 2018
Just got back from the SA wildlife conservation 10-day tour. It COMPLETELY exceeded my expectations!!! The group was small - only 7 people, and we all are lifelong friends now and are trying to plan a future trip together.
Thank you for making this such a wonderful experience. From the high-end Rukiya Satara Lodge and Oluchi Lodge to the wonderful tours to the orphanage, wildlife, baboon and rhino sanctuaries, visiting world-famous Jessica the Hippo and the private reserve we had for our game drives. By the time we visited Kruger, we had already seen 4 of the Big 5 at the private reserves at Rukiya. The leopard remained elusive; however, I fell in love with the baby hyenas we saw twice on our after dark game drives. I look forward to my next outing - probably the volunteer adventure on the coast!! Thanks a million!!’ Cathy, Leesburg VA

Best trip ever!

Everything about this trip was great. Conraad and Lily have created a camp that is not only serene and beautiful, but also so comfortable and everyone feels like family. They paid attention to all the details when creating the camp- comfort, (beds are so cozy and comfortable), safety, amenities and beauty. The guides and trackers, Donovan, Elliott and Conraad were so knowledgeable and amazing in finding and identifying the animals and sharing their knowledge of them. Their confidence set us all at ease so I felt no fear as we drove up within 20 feet of a band of 5 male lions. We were able to sit and watch them for around 30 minutes. Totally an amazing experience. Meals are eaten with all the others in the camp and a great way to meet guests from other countries and to share the day’s adventures. We made several friends and are now facebook friends! The food is not only delicious, but the presentation just so appetizing. The entire program by DiscoverCorps is well run and enlightening. I feel so fortunate to have been able to go on the trip and will treasure the memories of it forever.

Havana weekend getaway
Submitted by Gina Kingsley - Tulsa United States | July 12, 2017
The Havana Weekend Getaway was an extremely enjoyable immersion into the arts and culture of Havana. Our guide was extremely attentive and accommodating and the agency was always quick to reply beforehand with our questions in preparation of the trip. The program packed in everything iconic you want to do in Havana. The staff, drivers, hosts, etc were all charming and pleasant. I will definitely use Discover Corp again!
Outstanding immersion in Cuba
Submitted by Sean Randolph - San Francisco, CA United States | April 27, 2017
Discover Corps' Arts and Culture trip exceeded expectations. Our guide was incredible, and made the trip an experience we could never have had on our own as independent travelers (which we usually are). It was a real immersion, with so many dimensions! The agenda was structured but super flexible, where our guide did everything possible to accommodate our different interests. History , music, culture, meeting and talking with Cubans - it was all there. And a its fascinating place. We're glad we went and would recommend this trip to anyone.
Cuba : Havana weekend
Submitted by Laveeza - Los Angeles United States | March 25, 2017
Amazing trip ! Very well organized , had an experience not only as a tourist but living in the homes of Cubans and getting to speak and learn from them added to the beauty of the trip . We went a day early and went to Fusterlandia on our own and Museum of revolution , highly recommend that !
The group size , tours and meals were all great and our guide Ernesto and driver Frank were both so helpful and made our trip fantastic . The only thing I would add for Discover corps is to have everyone arrive by a certain time. On the first day we spent hours in our gracious hosts home waiting for the last travellers to arrive, so all the plans had to be adjusted for the next day and the tour for the first day was cancelled and changed for the next day. Aside from this everything else was totally well organized and amazing !
