A great place for wildlife lovers who wants to have an impact on conservation

Great experience compare to other volunteering program. This is a big nice sustainable project. Also you'll have a good induction at the beginning and almost everything is organised here. The accommodations are amazing. You're not really immersed culturally except if you are a community volunteer. The volunteer coordinators are all nice but they sometimes need their privacy so don't really hang out with you except at lunch time and during the game drives. There's a hospital 45min away from the lodge so I had tick fever and thanks to a quick diagnostic, I was quickly back on game drives. The daily routine is great, you always have something to do during the day and when you have downtime you're quite happy. The excursions are quite expensive but I understand that African Impact is still a business. Anyway a great volunteering project that I advised.

wildlife! photos!

It was great to be able to spend a month photographing wildlife with like-minded people. It was very different to a regular safari where others may not have the same interest in photography as you do.

Euan NcNicholl Review

At first, I was a bit anxious coming to Zambia as I didn't know what to expect on my first trip to Africa, but I can now safely say that this trip was more than I could ever have expected. Thanks to African Impact, I got to experience the local culture and the struggles involved in every day life for the local people. As part of the teaching project I got to work in local schools where I experienced first hand the struggles involved for the students, this was a very enlightening experience and i would definitely recommend the teaching project. African Impact offered an incredible social aspect for the trip and i have made friends for life and hope to return in the near future

Review

I had a great time working in the local school at Mwandi. The children were really great and really eager to learn. The school is in a poverty stricken environment though and some of the challenges were obvious to see which made the experience more worthwhile because you could help the children learn.
