I enjoyed being able to work in conservation
Submitted by Enooyaq Sudlovenick | June 21, 2018
I enjoyed being able to work in conservation and to learn what is really required, what type of work needs to be done. The host family was amazing, very accommodating and helpful.
I got to the airport and the program leaders were there waiting for me, they were very friendly and warm and asked me a lot of questions as I also asked them some questions. The house we stayed at was very nice and there were quite a few other volunteers, I was one of two new people so after dinner we were given a brief run-down of what to expect and what options we had for some excursions for the weekends.
Throughout the following two weeks I got to learn more of how the project works and what kinds of challenges not only the volunteers faced but the co-ordinators as well. The experience working in close proximity to animals was awesome, just being in that type of environment is pretty cool. We prepared food, fed them, cleaned out the stables (elephants) cut down alien vegetation, fixed a road, gathered bedding grass for cheetahs and materials for nesting for the vultures.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience although I was only there for two weeks.
It was so great

Seeing the sharks and whales daily was my highlight of the trip! The process to sign up was really smooth, and I had no issues. Upon arriving and the time during the project was really great. It was so great to see the wildlife and to be a part of a conservation movement (a genuine one too). It's really special to be working alongside the crew and the marine biologists!
I had the best summer of my life

I spent 7 weeks in Barcelona working at the hostel. The work consisted of either serving breakfast, serving at the bar, or going with guests to some activity. I had the best summer of my life and really enjoyed the entire experience! The social life and experiencing Barcelona was incredible.

I've worked on the program in Cape Town for 4 weeks in the month of July. It was absolutely amazing, the staff working there were always available to help us and try to make us have the best experience possible and they were really friendly at the same time. The program was complete and above my expectations; we had the chance to play and have classes with the kids as well as build a new playground, help the community moving from a site to another or teach the kids surfing and other sports and we could choose what to do according to our preferences. We could also choose among 3 different sites to work in, including a school for disabled children.
The satisfaction of making a change in someone's lives, the kids' enthusiasm and all the amazing people I had a chance to meet over there,both the other volunteers and the staff who work there which were always available to help us whenever we had a problem or a doubt
I had a really great experience with goeco
Submitted by Beth Ormerod | June 20, 2018
Overall, I had a really great experience with goeco and the wildlife sanctuary. The project turned out to be everything I wanted and more. People couldn't believe the pictures I have from the trip and all the animal encounters. Many people seriously doubted how close I would be with the animals so I showed the them pictures. It is hard to put in words how life changing this opportunity was. I will be back to South Africa some day all thanks to GoEco.
During this project I enjoyed most spending time with the animals so close. It was such an incredible experience to work with the lions, elephants and cheetahs. Another thing i really enjoyed was the bond I shared with the other volunteers. By the end of my two week, I made some lifelong friends and memories I will never forget!
