This experience was a great choice, the staff at Moholoholo was absolutely wonderful, helpful and kind.

I love animals, especially big cats and it was always my dream of going to Africa. I had my first experience two years ago when I travelled to Kenya, it was a fantastic experience.  I was so happy that I decided to go again but this time I wanted to be in contact with wildlife so I searched on the internet and found many different places. 

This experience was a great choice, the staff at Moholoholo was absolutely wonderful, helpful and kind. I stayed at the lodge and there was nothing better than seeing wild animals going past in the afternoon, from the comfort of your porch.  When I arrived I received lots of  information and guidance from the staff and from other volunteers, I liked the organization in groups.  I met volunteers from many parts of the world but I was the only one from Chile!  I Will remember from the bottom of my heart being in direct contact with the animals I took care of, giving bottles to baby impalas or being a babysitter to others. 

 I really got to understand the damage to the world we as humans are doing and how we are seriously affecting the wildlife.  So although I was very happy in many ways, in other ways I was very sad to realise how we are leaving smaller and smaller spaces for wildlife. This really broke my heart. I was really taken care of by the ACE staff on my arrival and when on my return home!
