Our customer reviews and testimonials speak for themselves

“My experience volunteering in Zanzibar has been hard work on the land, eco-bricking and a lot of teaching and prepping, but I can honestly say I enjoyed every minute of it. You go through everything here with other volunteers, which allows you to make friends from all over the world. The best part of this travel experience are without a doubt the local people you meet. Everybody is extremely welcoming, you cannot go around the village without being greeted and welcomed. The people here are so nice, you feel right at home!”

Nora Daoudi, Belgium

“The volunteer staff are amazing and the guides seem to know everything there is to know about the bush, not once in my time here were they unable to answer a question. The work can be tiring, but it is rewarding as we can see the difference we are making in Africa. The game drives are amazing and there is always animals and beautiful landscapes to see, the best of all for me was a sighting of a leopard with its cub. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and my only regret is that I didn’t book more than 3 weeks!”
