I would thoroughly recommend Wildlife ACT to anyone of any age who is considering volunteering in conservation. Many iconic species are threatened with extinction, and I was compelled to volunteer and make a small difference in helping to prevent this. Volunteering in South Africa on reserves in KwaZulu-Natal was an amazing experience – witnessing and taking part in REAL conservation with such dedicated people. I cannot speak highly enough of the monitors I assisted on uMkhuze Game reserve (Teegan and Megan) – two inspirational young women. Also meeting staff from Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife who are on the front-line of conservation. It was my first trip to South Africa as a lone female, but right from point of booking I was well looked after, with details of places to stay before being met at St Richards Airport to be taken to the reserve. I saw amazing wildlife, took part in important conservation, and made amazing life-long friends. Thank you Wildlife ACT.
