“I just felt so lucky for the experience”

General Impression

Overall Rating:    8 / 10

The staff were amazing, and the accommodations were better than I expected. To wake up to lions roaring and monkeys crawling on the roof, I just felt so lucky for the experience. I would’ve liked to have had a list of things to pack, which other volunteers received through a different organizer.


The people were very friendly and everything was very affordable. I know there were some safety concerns on the weekend but on the reserve you could feel the respect and pride people had for their country.

Project & Staff

Mama Africa is the GOAT. Everyone was so friendly, so helpful, so kind.


Pack several layers and lots of sunscreen! Also bring gardening gloves.
