“I just returned from my 9th visit to Naankuse and once again had the most amazing experience. From my favourite which are the baboon walks to witnessing rhino re-locations for the first time, every day was an adventure. It is such a good feeling volunteering for an organization that truly cares about the animals and environment and who are doing so much to make a difference for not only the wildlife but the local people. The staff go out of their way to make sure we all have a good experience no matter what the daily activity is.; from feeding everything from meerkats to cheetahs to game counts or walking the cheeky baboons. There is a lot of hard work too as enclosures always need cleaning or fences mending but it’s all part of the experience. With so many return volunteers, there were always friends from previous visits to reconnect with and share old stories and new experiences. Can’t wait till next year to do it all again.”
