The whole trip was memorable but I loved the walk in the snow and rain at the top of a mountain. Brilliant. (more)Julie Topliss
Walking in the Carpathian Mountains was stunning. Watching bear and wild boar at close quarters and visiting the bear sanctuary was definitely one of the highlights.

As the research carried out was the same as the normal... (more)Louise Sexton

I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets. Its hard to say what was the most memorable part of this vacation as there was so much variety and different experiences, its difficult to decide what was the best part of it. (more)Cathy Bisset

Meeting the bears and being able to really make a difference to their day-to-day lives with enrichment, feeding and cleaning; some of the things we were doing (such as enrichment to keep the bears active and happy) wouldn't get done unless we were there to help out! (more)Heather Reynolds

South Africa wildlife reserves conservation expedition
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Monitoring and tracking the wild dogs was a most memorable experience. We'd get up early in the morning and sit in the back of an open jeep and roar off to the last sighting. It was winter. It was cold. It didn't matter as it was a big adventure and the not knowing would we find them or not? Waiting and watching for the next time. Really great fun. Tips? For the winter, take lots of warm clothing layers as you can peel off as the weather warms up. Follow the list... (more)Keith Costelloe

Being with the elephants and their handlers. Having the big bull elephants walk past you, just inches from your face, leaving you to feel completely small and vulnerable as these pre-historic like mammals move by with grace, softness, power and majesty! (more)Georgina Hickman

Animal project in South Africa
From
1,395
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Tips? Local benefits? Overall rating? Poor. Not much meaningful work. It was not well organized in keeping volunteers busy. There were lots of occasions when we ran out of jobs and were told to wander around and look for things to do. Myself and my grandchildren were extremely disappointed. We had a family meeting and left early. Still a bad taste in our mouth. After staying there I felt that the fee charged was excessive. John Brown. (more)John Brown

Memorable parts? My last cage dive. We had one large female shark who did a slow pass right next to the cage. You could see her blue eye moving and focusing as she had a good look at what was going on inside our cage. Tips? I would recommend adding a few extra days on either side of the project so that you can explore Cape Town and do any additional activities that you haven't yet had the chance to fit in. The longer you are there, the longer your "to do" list will get. Local... (more)Annabel Marriott

The next time I would definitely bring a bigger tent and 2 very strong head torches. My tent was ok for 2 weeks but for a longer period it would be to small. A very strong head torch is a...

From

Memorable parts? Impossible to choose one single part! Staying in Ratmate village and participating in house building was certainly memorable - whilst this was such a happy and welcoming community, it was both shocking and humbling to see first-hand the scale of earthquake damage in the region and the difficulties they face in re-establishing a good standard of accommodation there. All of the trekking was really enjoyable with perhaps the highlight being the very early morning trek to Poon... (more)Eimear Hannigan

Memorable parts? My most memorable activity was actually my first where I returned a greeting to a baboon as indicated by the guides, I later had to endure a grooming from one of the baboons. The most exciting part was heading to the Big Daddy sand dune in Sossusvlei. Kind of what I always imagined an adventure to be. Tips? Two weeks is not enough, to get the most out of your time at this project you'll need to be there at least a month and then there's the other sites to consider.... (more)Stephen King
