I spent three weeks at Leo in September. That was my first time ever in Africa and my first time volunteering , it was amazing! You will see and learn a lot about lovely hyenas, lions and all kind of wildlife.
Sabrina, Koos and all the guides work with a lot of passion and respect for the nature.

Volunteering at Leo Africa has been an amazing experience I will never forget. The staff and guides were great. The knowledge of the guides is incredible. I've learned so much about the behaviour of the animals who live at Marakele National Park and others. I also learned a lot about conservation and every day we were involved in the conservation of the park, for example wrapping trees with chicken wire to protect them against elephants. Doing a sleep out in the park and bush walks are a few of my favourite things I have done. I've met some great people during my stay and am still in touch with a few. I would really recommend going to Leo Africa and I would love to come back at some point.

I have spent seven weeks at LEO Africa and i really don't know where to start.

I am in love with Africa and I was looking for an experience just there. I was looking for adventure, a bigger knowledge about animals and wildlife, nature, freedom...but what i lived at LEO Africa was even more than all this.

Thanks to all the amazing guides that work there, you will become part of a wonderful project that has the goal to monitor the Big 5, hyenas and cheetas, and to conserve the environment. I didn't expect to learn so many different facts about animals and plants. And i have to thank billion of times all the staff for that!!!

They talked to us also about stars, plastic problem and how to help solve it and so many more things!! Everyday was exciting and different from the one before!!!!

The house is very comfortable, with big rooms and bathrooms. I miss waking up there, in the middle of the bush with beautiful sunrises!! Everyone has been very kind and made me feel like part of a family!

What I lived at LEO Africa is very hard to explain, it's beyond words!!!! I suggest it to EVERYONE, you will come back home happier and with unforgettable memories...about landscapes, animals, a lot of laughters and beautiful moments with the staff and the other volunteers!

I spent almost 2 months at LEO Africa and it was one of the best experiences I ever had. I learned so much about conservation and the wildlife in South Africa. This project has opened my eyes on conservation and how important it is to actively be a part of it to help protect nature. I cannot wait to return to the bush as soon as I can!
