The Trip of a Lifetime!

Submitted by Mary Drummond | November 2015

I don't even know where to start! I read reviews before I got here from people saying how two weeks was just not long enough. I was heartbroken after my two week stay as well!

Every day we experienced something new and exciting. From day-to-day tasks like cleaning out the rhino and elephant stalls and doing feed deliveries, to swimming with the elephants and feeding the rhino.

All the handlers were so enthusiastic and willing to share their knowledge with all the volunteers and it was a pleasure to meet the people who live their lives dedicated to the protection and well-being of these animals. I also loved getting to meet the schoolchildren, which was one of the highlights of my trip.

I am also pleased we got to be the first volunteer group to welcome Marc and Anna. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, and nothing was a problem for them at all. Their knowledge of wildlife will go a long way working here and we all wish them the best of luck on their journey here.

I'm already hoping to plan my next trip back! Thank you for helping me make memories I could never forget!
