Amazing experience

I loved my time in Zimbabwe! I made amazing friends and loved the volunteer experience.

I hope to one day become a vet so the experience in animal care was very helpful. The volunteer work was hard but rewarding. I worked on cleaning and building enclosures, and preparing food for animals. The staff is hilarious and incredible. Animal time was my favorite part of everyday, where we got an hour to visit with whatever animals we want. I loved it!

After volunteering we had a chance to relax with our fellow volunteers. I got to meet people from all over the world which was so fun.

My one complaint would be the rats that came into our cabin every night.

I also loved the experience to go on the Matopos trip. We got to see rhinos, cave paintings, and a local tribe. It was amazing!

Overall I had an amazing time! Would definitely do it again.
