It was the best internship I have ever done! A lot of activities in a beautiful landscape. It was very impressive to be so close to these wild animals and see their natural behavior. It was amazing to work with the Wildlife Unit, we have learned so much from them. One of my best memories was to take part in the anesthesia of two male cheetahs. It was crazy to see and to take part in it! Thanks to Wildlife Research Africa - Volunteer Experience and Entabeni.

Just wow! What an experience. My dreams have come true thanks to Wildlife Research Africa. I will never forget the day I met the elephants, my favorite animals. Monitoring African wildlife was really amazing. I saw and learnt so much during my stay. Furthermore, the reserve is so beautiful, I don't have enough words to describe it... The Wildlife Management team is very nice. Everything was better than I could imagine.

A dream to volunteer in Africa becomes reality thanks to Wildlife Research Africa. We were immersed in the middle of nature and camped next to animals. It was amazing to hear all the animals at night and wake up to lions roaring. We worked with the Wildlife Management team very close to wild animals and saw the behavior. The two weeks passed too fast but the photos and amazing moments will be carved in our memory for ever!

I loved the two weeks here with Wildlife Research Africa! The nights and mornings can be very cold but it is quickly forgotten for I have seen wild animals every day. Some times they are very close and it's very exciting. It was great to work with the Wildlife Unit and to see what their work entails. Everyone is ready to teach you a lot of things and always with a smile. Dewald is a perfect host that likes to talk about his country and to cook in the well equipped kitchen tent in the middle of the reserve. If you like nature, wild animals, camping and good meat, don't hesitate!

It was wonderful to volunteer in Africa and to come so close to such a variety of wild animals. We had lunch on the game viewer 10 meters from lions. I also enjoyed the view from the top of the mountain. As we camped in the middle of the reserve I could hear jackal, lions, baboons and hippos. It was very nice. It's a life's experience I will never forget! Thank you Dewald and the Wildlife Research Africa team and Entabeni for the experience.

It was the first time I experienced African wildlife and what a good experience it was!
The 2 weeks went by very fast and I saw more than I could imagine! I remember the first day when we followed the female cheetah for half an hour, later to see the pride of lions and all the other animals. Wildlife Research Africa is not just tourism to volunteer in Africa, they let you live the routine of the game workers. What an experience, Thanks Dewald and the Entabeni team.
