Volunteering at the Nakavango Conservation Programme in Victoria Falls was one of the best experiences of my life. The project leaders on the ground were great; supportive throughout and very open to discussing the issues they face and some unexpected solutions to environmental and conservation issues that are applicable across the world. I learnt a huge amount about reading the story that any environment presents and had a great time doing it. There is a good mix of activities and rest time and the accommodation was great. We had individual rooms and the staff couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful. I felt valued and looked after. IVHQ was great in the run-up, from the perspectives of both pre-planning generally to the specific needs of the programme (particularly having the correct paperwork for visas and travel). I recommend both the Nakavango Conservation Programme and IVHQ to anyone considering a volunteer program. You will be in very good hands.

This was the most incredible experience I have had in my life thus far. I completely fell in love with the culture and people of Cambodia! I have nothing but positive things to say about IVHQ and their staff. They are so ahead of the game and were always ready and willing to answer any questions and or concerns that I had before my program started and even whilst I was there. They also had a local staff member ready to pick me up at the airport upon arrival even though I arrived well past midnight and much later than expected! My advice, use IVHQ, go far, see the world, make a difference, and experience as much as you can!

This was my first time travelling internationally by myself. I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I arrived. When I got to Bali I was welcomed and when I arrived at Green Lion I felt very included and everyone was so friendly towards me and I made friends right away. The first week was introduction week and we got to see so many amazing things and I met a lot of great people. The first week was an amazing experience unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. During the time I was travelling covid19 was going on and I unfortunately had to leave early before I was able to go to Nusa Penida for my turtle conservation program. But Green Lion and IVHQ were very helpful and offered me a credit so I could come back and complete my program. I will be going back after covid is over and I am very excited. If you have the opportunity it is more than worth it.
