"I think that the entire trip itself was the most memorable experience I’ve ever had in my life so far, I’m already planning to go back again this year! But Victoria falls was by far my favorite place that I got to visit in Zimbabwe while I was there. This was the best trip of my life -  I’d recommend it to anybody!"

"This was my first volunteering project and the best decision I have ever made. When I hold the small turtles and gently clean them with my sponge I was literally crying because they were so cute and needed our help to have more chance of survival. "

Every day was amazing and full of incredible experiences and new people. The days flew by as we were so busy working on the farm, hanging out and making new friends, and learning about the wildlife in a very hands on manner.

Hard work pays off, and this doesn’t go unnoticed by the amazing crew. I managed to go onto an exclusive boat trip which had less clients on board, giving me more opportunities to capture some great footage of the sharks who displayed incredible activity, breaching around six times in the space of two hours.

The African Wildlife Orphanage’s main goal is to care for orphaned or injured animals until they are able to be released back into the wild. If that’s not a viable option, they’re lovingly cared for the rest of their lives. These animals are also used for educating young local children about the creatures that share their environment. Bulawayo is the second largest city in Zimbabwe, so many of the children living there have never had the opportunity to see or touch wild animals.

I have been here on the Perhentian Islands for about one month and I’m still excited for the beautiful landscape, the warm people and of course the amazing turtles we are working with daily. On the 10th my teammate Joel,  Kinsey and Elliot and me saw the first turtle nesting at Tiga Ruang during our night patrol. It was so amazing seeing the turtle laying her eggs in the sand, measuring her carapace and taking photos of her for photo identification!

Volunteering with animals and wildlife is a rewarding, fun and unique opportunity. Zimbabwean wildlife is diverse and amazing, and every wildlife lover should take up the opportunity to volunteer with animals here! This country is home to many animals unique to Africa, from the majestic African lion to tiny vervet monkeys. Many wildlife species in africa are endangered and on the verge of going extinct, due to habitat loss, illegal hunting, neglect, abuse and the list goes on.

Ah, the Israeli desert. There is just simply something magical about the massive sand dunes, sporadically sprinkled lines of green palm trees and the dry heat. It’s a hiker’s paradise and a photographer’s dream. Along with the peace and quiet of the desert oasis, however, are some of the most unique species of wildlife in the country.
