I was fairly surprised when I first arrived, the place was absolutely beautiful. Free roaming chickens, and tortoises, the aviaries were kept so well, and on arrival the people were so welcoming.
Throughout my stay, I met many people from around the world, and it was so nice to meet lots of like minded people, everyone spoke one or more languages including English.
The days were made up of project days, feeding and days off. The feeding days, meant you were on a set route at African drawn and all the animals needed feeding, after morning feeds; some jobs needed doing such as cleaning dishes, moving items, playing with the junior animals to enrich them etc. Project days meant that you would have to general work that needed fixing or doing, such as fixing wholes in fences, planting trees, or sometimes finding cows that had got out!
If you wanted to do an activity, people were always ready at hand to help, just make known what you would like to do and they would organise it and get other people going too! The meals were basic but good enough during the day, there was a tab system for snacks during the day then you’d pay your tab off at the end of he week. You stay on a game park, so you could look out in the morning and see zebras and giraffes! The rooms were standard huts, with electric access, light and a heater, you could share in a same gender room, on your own or in a twin room, bathrooms were same gender with hot water. It was the best experience of my life and I cant wait to go back at all!!! Gap360 are such a good help at organising everything. A sleeping bag is also handy as its so cold at night!
