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!
I chose ACE as I wanted to go somewhere ETHICAL - as this is very important to me - and I definitely found an ethical company!
This experience was a great choice, the staff at Moholoholo was absolutely wonderful, helpful and kind.
The greatest moment at Care for Wild for me was when the staff allowed me in with a six-month-old baby black Rhino called Swazi. She was in quarantine with a goat for company and I was to be more company for her. Due to my long stay and just working hard and being there for the right reasons, I guess I qualified for this honour.
