I may end up changing my review. However, my daughter, travelling to Zimbabwe, ran into some problems during her experience. I attempted to contact Go Eco only to find that there telephone number did not work. No call went through on two different phones that I tried.

So, I emailed their "urgent email" line. The person on call "did not have her international phone handy." I was told to call the phone number to talk to the manager on call. I explained three times that the number did not work.

At this point, my daughter is in Zimbabwe, going through a difficult time in a Go Eco program, and they are off for the weekend and cannot help.

Thanks Go Eco!

I had a wonderful time volunteering at Wildlife Rehabilitation Center! I loved my daily interactions with the resident animals, as well as the unique and unexpected tasks that arise (such as tracking wild buffalo, or receiving an injured leopard). The social aspects of the volunteer program were a great addition to my experience, and I have no doubt that all the volunteers make life long friends. There is a wide range of volunteer demographics - while I was there I met volunteers aged 16 - 65 and from all over the world. It's true that you determine your own experience by the amount of effort you put in. But if you desire, you can spend almost the whole day interacting with the resident wildlife!

I was able to go to the Matobo National Park and Victoria Falls during my stay. I was able to get into the same enclosure with a serval, barn owls, night apes, duiker, birds of prey, and so many others. By working closely with these animals, I was able to learn some of their behavior quirks and get a better understanding of what they eat.

Volunteering in South Africa was everything I had hoped it would be and more. I came home realizing how unique my experiences there were, and how lucky I was that I had found an agency/program that helped me achieve this. We were able to spend a significant amount of time with African wildlife while also seeing the role of livestock and domestic animals in the community as well. During our free time, we were able to explore the area (always in groups) and go out at nights. Being able to go out allowed us to meet locals and gave us the opportunity to let loose. This program is the perfect mix of work and play.
