Going to LEO was the best thing I've done. I originally booked 4 weeks, but after a week I booked another because I loved it so much. I highly recommend if you want to see animals and work in conservation. The park is absolutely beautiful and you are almost guarenteed to see something new every drive. The work we did is not difficult at all and can be fun. I got to meet many incredible people from different parts of the world that I have remained in contact with. The camp life and staff was incredible. They made it feel like home and created a comfortable situation. I wouldn't have been able to afford to go to Africa without LEO. LEO is affordable and worth every penny! I plan on going back sometime. 5 out of 5!

I spent 2 weeks with LEO and it was an unforgettable experience. Their guides are extremely knowledgeable and it was obvious that each and every one of them viewed their work as their calling. I learned a tremendous amount from them; not just about wildlife, but also the attitude one should adopt when interacting with the untamed environment of Africa. Would definitely visit again if I had the chance!

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.

Beautiful place, amazing wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, extraordinary staff members who are beautiful persons and truly passionate about their job, and wonderful volunteers.
If you love nature and animals and you care about our planet and nature conservation, don't overthink and join Leo, it's a once in a lifetime experience.

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.
