“Simply an amazing experience!!”

Written on: 10/10/2013 by Platchan (1 review written)

I first had the idea of volunteering with lions three years ago but I never got round to it. Started looking into it in February and came across a few sites - after reading all the reviews and the variety of projects on offer, I knew had found the best site. And I was not mistaken!! Pat spoke to me daily for a few weeks to help me decide on the project that I wanted to do. She was very patient and informative and I am so grateful. Gemma was also amazing, the two together make for an… Read Full Review

“Life Changing”

Written on: 17/09/2013

I found Amanzi Travel when I was in high school and was trying to organise a trip with two friends to do volunteer work with animals in Africa. I had found lots of sites that had similar things but was drawn to Amanzi Travel due to their great website and due to the feedback on it (both written and in pictures) from other people who had used it. I am so glad that I went ahead and used them. I have used Amanzi Travel twice now, once to do volunteer work and an animal reserve and once to do a… Read Full Review

“Professional, Friendly, and Informative”

Written on: 09/09/2013

I first heard about Amanzi Travel through an advertisement at university and thought I’d browse their website for some gap year ideas. The website was very professional, easy to follow, and had lots of gap year projects that looked very interesting. After making an email enquiry about a medical volunteering project in Malawi I received a prompt response from a staff member, Gemma, who was extremely friendly, helpful, and informative. She was easy to approach with any queries I had about the… Read Full Review

“Simple, hassle free and amazing”

Written on: 09/09/2013 by 1emma1 (1 review written)

When I first thought of volunteering there were just so many companies out there that offered similar things, so I struggled. When I read about the programme with amanzi travel it sounded exactly what I was looking for but I was apprehensive about booking and just doing it! But I grabbed the bull by its horns and paid my deposit. The following months were hassle free and swimmingly easy, which made me wonder why i was so worried! I was sent everything I needed to know and any questions I needed… Read Full Review

“quick, clear and comprehensive help!”

Written on: 20/08/2013 by hollandafrica (1 review written)

My sister booked volunteering work with Amanzi a year ago. She had a very good and positive experience. A year later I wanted to do some volunteering work in Africa as well and I visited the amanzi website immediately. I found a project and asked Gemma if it was possible, but unfortunately this project was fully booked. She sent me directly an email back and enquired me which project was equal. Than there was 'another problem', because it was not possible to stay for 4 weeks at research base at… Read Full Review

“Fantastic experience at Noah's Ark”

Written on: 11/06/2013 by KM_Y2013 (1 review written)

I am based in Australia and I was looking for a place to do animal volunteer work in Africa. I stumbled across Amanzi Travel. I ended up making my booking a year and a half after getting in contact with Gemma at Amanzi and when ever I had any questions or issues, I could contact her directly and she would get back to me quite quickly - despite the time difference. I was looking at going to either the Namibian Wildlife Sanctuary or Noah's Ark. I ended up going to Noah's Ark. The coordinators… Read Full Review

“Thorough and Thoughtful...Amanzi and Gemma both”

Written on: 05/06/2013 by Max_sMomma (1 review written)

Gemma is an incredible asset to Amanzi! Any question, any time, complete responses, empathetic consideration of concerns and issues, resourceful and professional. Even in retrospect when I noted the info I requested was available in the departure packets, she willingly and completely provided me with a thorough reply. I was completely impressed with Gemma's level of customer service, and Amanzi is lucky to have her. At Naankuse, I had a LOT of experience with the Baboons which i absolutely… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/05/2013 by AliciaMW (1 review written)

I found Amanzitravel was amazing in helping me plan my trip. Everyone that I talked to was not only incredibly helpful but also very friendly. Being 19 and planning my first big solo trip was very intimidating. However, having Amanzitravel and Gemma there to help me with every detail made it a lot easier. I'm really grateful for all of the help in making my trip as fabulous as it was! Everything from my informative predeparture pack to having every little question answered right away was great!… Read Full Review

“Helpful & Very Organised”

Written on: 08/01/2013 by AliciaD36 (1 review written)

This was my first overseas holiday that I had booked, me being 21 I was quiet shy and worried to be heading to Africa alone. So when I was looking for a safe and reliable company to book through I found Amanzi. I had MANY questions before and after booking, I was also worried of the transfer of funds, as I am from Australia so would be paying in Pounds instead. It was all very simple though, I was also contacted instantly to let me know the funds had arrived safely. I then was able to ask all… Read Full Review

“An amazing experience!”

Written on: 23/11/2012 by Namwala12 (1 review written)

I loved every minute at the Zambia Lion Project, Amanzi helped with any queries, worries or questions, making it much less stressful than it could have been! Walking with lions is something I had never expected to do but thanks to Amanzi offering this project, I did it! I have worked with other African animals but sitting on the banks of the Zambezi with the king of the jungle is such a surreal experience. The lions are beautiful, relaxed and without realising, they are giving the volunteers an… Read Full Review

“The time of my life”

Written on: 05/11/2012 by wustendahl (1 review written)

I am so very grateful to all the service that Amanzi travel provided me with as I through them booked my trip to the N/a'an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia. I really had the three best weeks of my life. All the work I did there really made me feel like I was important and made a difference for the animals. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes animals but I can assure you that you do not have to be an animal lover to love working at N/a'an ku sê. All the experiences… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service”

Written on: 01/11/2012 by BiffandHelly (1 review written)

My ambition in life was to stroke a cheetah on my 65th birthday but looking at safari holidays the thought of being in a group on game drives with limited time didn't turn me on. However, after talking to Gemma at Amanzi travel, who reassured me that my wife and I weren't too old to sleep in a tent in the bush and work as a volunteer we booked for two weeks at Na' ankuse sanctuary. Their support and easiy to use website was excellent and everything they told us came true when we arrived. Not… Read Full Review

“A great experience”

Written on: 16/10/2012 by seregalla (1 review written)

We lived a great experience that our friends envy for...it was our first trip to Africa and we did enjoy it because we had the chance to interact with animals that normally we only see on tv. Amanzi organized everything for us and it all went according to plan - the only thing I'd improve is communication when it comes to traveling. We didn't know we'd spend a night in Harare at someone's place, we didn't have any driver's phone number to call in case nobody had showed up at the airport... I's… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/08/2012 by m.f.k. (1 review written)

I have been in Africa for just 2 weeks in Lion and tiger conservation and game reserve and I still regret haven’t been longer. I really had a super-fantastic experience that I will never forget. The first step was “taking the decision to be a volunteer” the second one searching in the web the right project. I spent such a long time searching in the web till when finally I found “amanzi travel” website. From that moment all came easier. Just the time to choose the right project… Read Full Review

“Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary through Amanzi Travel”

Written on: 09/08/2012 by ciara.maguire (1 review written)

My time at N/a'an ku se (Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary) was unforgetable and one which I would recommend to any animal lover. All of the activities I got to take part in really made me feel as though I was making a difference and so my voluntary work was not only hugely enjoyable but highly rewarding. This experience was only made better by the fantastic service that Gemma & Amanzi Travel provided in making my booking of the project so easy and worry free. Prior to departure, Amanzi Travel… Read Full Review

I had a great time on my trip and it was extremely easy booking. Amanzi travel staff was very accommodating and attentive. They would always respond to my emails within a reasonable time and not keep my waiting. Gemma has recommended this trip for me after I told her exactly what I was looking for and her advice to go with this trip was the right advice. I had a fantastic time. The only thing I regret was not staying longer!… Read Full Review
