Great Project But DON'T USE Fronteering.com

I Loved working at Devils at the Cradle and plan to return in 2019. But Fronteering.com is a scam. They did not know that I needed a visa for one. But also charged me for $1545 USD for 3 weeks of volunteer work. This included my bunk house accommodations at a place nearby. But I have since found out that I can volunteer directly through Devils at the Cradle for no charge. And I can get a discounted rate for the accommodations too. So again, I LOVED working at the devils place and am planning to do this again. But no one should use Fronteering.com. They are only taking your money and doing little work for you.

    Thank you for the Review and we are Glad you loved the project.

    Regarding the Visa, there is no visa required for our volunteering programs in Australia unless you need a tourist visa to enter Australia in the first place. Besides that for all our volunteering programs in Australia you can simply enter the country with the letter we provide. If this for any reason went different in your case than you most likely were either give wrong information by someone not from our organization as we never have had any problems with our arriving volunteers. That being said when you your local Australian embassy or consulate they are usually not very aware or understanding regarding Volunteering programs and what it entails. So I am guessing they might have given you misinformation.

    Regarding the programs while a lot of the fees went towards Hostel on arrival, Transfer from the airport, transfer to the project and back as well as your accommodation for the full duration it is important to keep in mind when you book that we are also an organization and we also have to cover our office costs, pay taxes, pay salaries and expensive internet marketing (like this website).

    In reality without Fronteering you would most likely never have found out this program. Our organization travels to these programs, vets the programs and makes sure they are suitable and then also promotes these programs on the internet at a high cost. Furthermore we are there to assist both in cases of emergency or in cases or when the program can no longer offer the program.

    As an example due to flooding certain programs had to be closed down, Fronteering replaced the affected volunteers within a few days to suitable interesting volunteering programs while some volunteers who traveled on their own were on their own with nowhere to go. When you book with an organization like Fronteering you do not only book your program but you also book security and assurance that you will be taken care off. I know of too many independent travelers who got stuck with their programs who were no longer interested in hosting them, had overbooked or who were simply not suitable to begin with. Through Fronteering you do not have to worry such things.

    Coming back to the fees, After all the costs involved we do indeed make a small profit between 100 - 150 US$ depending on the program (which is again taxable at the end of the year) and this is used for the continuation of our organization.

    Actually most of which goes towards our programs in Guyana where we have set up programs directly with Amerindian communities in the Amazon rainforest to protect their way of life, the rainforest and its wildlife. These programs would not exist without Fronteering and are run completely charitable.

    At the end of the day we are more charitable than most "Registered Charities".

    We wish you all the best with your future adventures!

What a Abundant Adventure

I was not expecting much but my expectations were blown! Jordan is a truly amazing country with people who are so generous and kind. My best memories are not the ones riding camels or driving the 4x4 but with the amazing Jordanians with the biggest smiles.
