ACE made traveling during the covid pandemic completely stress-free and puts the volunteers above anything else.
I also cannot recommend ACE as a company highly enough, they have helped me with so many situations when I was there the most recent time with all the hecticness of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I have to say that my trip to Care for Wild was just a completely next level experience.
South Africa is always going to be a huge part of my life and every single penny I spent on these volunteering experiences has not been wasted.
I invite you to get motivated, not to stay behind a screen watching or sharing videos of how they kill animals, see it with your own eyes and act against this that happens every day, before it is too late .
When I say “Once in a lifetime experience”, that barely scratches the surface of my amazing Care for Wild Volunteer experience.
The first time you feed the baby rhino’s is something you will never ever forget.
It makes you so emotional and realize this is what is going on in the world and all other things seem so unimportant
You get the opportunity to be involved in everything going on at Care for Wild. There are lots of presentations and everyone is really generous with their knowledge and experience. Petronel is such an inspiring lady but very approachable with an amazingly kind outlook on the world. I can’t recommend a trip to Care for Wild enough.
I would say it was a once in a lifetime adventure but that wouldn't be true, I am returning next summer to do it all again!
