I just returned home from another wonderful year volunteering with Wildlife ACT in South Africa, and my heart is bursting with love and fullness from the rich experiences I had with the animals, my fantastic wildlife monitors, and my team over the past few months. I have truly made friends for life in my South African home the past couple of years, so much so that I have already booked my six weeks for next year, and my 77 year old father is planning on joining me for a couple of weeks!  As a fifty something year old, I can attest to the fact that this opportunity is for everyone who is adventurous, flexible and loves supporting the wildlife in Africa. Age becomes irrelevant among your team mates, as everyone has something unique and special to offer. It has been my experience the past few years that the groups I have been placed with mesh together and form very deep bonds during our time together! So, don’t be shy, come give Wildlife ACT a try! It will be one of the things you go home dreaming about, until you return the year after!
