Zululand Wildlife & Game Reserve Conservation Expedition in South Africa, and
Lion Breeding and Rehabilitation Voluntary Project in Zimbabwe

         

It was brilliant. I want to go back in the future. I enjoyed both South Africa and Zimbabwe working with the lions. The lion project was perfect.

In South Africa, monitoring the wild dogs and rhinos was a fantastic experience. By monitoring for 2 weeks, I got to know the personalities of the dogs. It was fun to see which one would come out to greet us.

I learnt to use the monitoring and GPS equipment. We did cook for ourselves, so some idea of cooking meals is a bonus.

My manager taught us about the various types of birds in the area as well as the vegetation. When I am home and viewing various TV series about Africa, I can tell others about the birds that are singing and vegetation throughout the country.

In Zimbabwe I worked with the Lions out of Gweru. The people were excellent. The food was cooked for us and very yummy. It was good to take an early morning walk with the cubs. We baby-sat them during the day and went on another walk at the end of the day.

Other times of the day we would clean the pens out and prepare the food for all the lions. The volunteers were given various tasks during their placement. This enabled us to examine all aspects of the lion breeding program. The staff were friendly and fun to work with.
