Life-Changing

What. A. Trip. I don't know what was the best part - the staff at Chipangali, the wildlife, or the land of Zimbabwe itself. I made the most incredible friends with other volunteers from all over the world; Australia, Dubai, Qatar, England, Ireland, Mexico, and Canada! Kevin and Nicky, the owners of the facility, truly care about each and every one of their volunteers and will go far and beyond to help them with their needs. The staff of Chipangali were so welcoming and friendly and made it so easy to be so far away from home for so long. The animals within the shelter and the wildlife surrounding it were incredible. Lions, leopards, baboons, monkeys, servals, jackels, kudos, dikers, bush pigs, crocs, snakes, ducks, owls, eagles, etc. The frequent trips to Matapos, Hwange, and Chobe National Parks were SO cool. Victoria Falls is also beautiful.
The staff of Kaya was extremely helpful in any situation - and even when I got to Zimbabwe they would still check in on me every week or so to make sure I was doing alright. 5 stars!
