The months I spent at Leo were the best of my life. So many incredible wildlife encounters in a breath-taking setting. The mountain surroundings and the river, where we saw so many animals drinking and elephants playing, make it a unique place to see wildlife. I will never forget the amazing experiences of Microlight and Sleepouts. The atmosphere at base is like being at home. The staff (friends now) is so passionate and enthusiastic about nature and conservation and inspired me so much to contribute myself.
If you want to live Africa by actively taking part in the conservation of Nature and therefore feel so rewarded, I sincerely believe there cannot be a better place than Leo.

I spent two weeks at Leo in April and it keeps recurring over and over again in my dreams.
I will never forget the smells, the colors and the noises of the bush. I saw many animals and I learned a lot about wildlife.
Koos and Sabrina are extraordinary guides but they are much more than it. They loves what they do. They have a real project and they taught me that each of us can do something for wildlife conservation. And I’m going to do it.

I loved every moment that I spent at LEO Africa: camera traps with Koos, tree wrapping, alien plant removal and game drive with Sabrina.

I met my new friends there and I'll come back as soon as possible.

In Leo Africa I trust.

I spent 3 weeks at LEO, it was an amazing experience! I learn so much about nature, animals and how to take better care for environment. The staff is very dedicated and it was great to see how they constantly try to live everyday life as ecologically as possible and always explored new ways to do so. It was amazing to learn about nature and animals so much, the staff was very competent.
The elephant drives and Ares were definitely my favorite moments there!
Keep up the good work!!

Three weeks at LEO are three weeks full of new experiences, exciting adventures, diverse impressions, special moments and a lot of new knowledge. We don´t want to miss one day of our volunteering at LEO. The super competent LEO-team let us participate at their own experiences and knowledge. During the daily drives we saw uncountable animals (even very rare ones like an ardwolf), learnt a lot about flora and fauna, about parkmanagement and how things work together. And all this in the community with amiable persons. This volunteering was without any doubt one of the highlights of our sabbatical. We highly recommend a volunteering at LEO for all persons who love the nature and like to be in the bush the whole day. We´ll come again. Many thanks from the heart to the whole team for this great time we spent at LEO.


Drei Wochen bei LEO sind drei Wochen voller neuer Erfahrungen, aufregenden Abenteuer, vielfältiger Impressionen, eindrücklicher Momenten und neuem Wissen. Wie wollen keinen Tag unseres Volunteerings bei LEO missen. Das super kompetente LEO-Team ließ uns immer an ihren Erfahrungen und an ihrem Wissen teilhaben. Wir haben nicht nur unglaublich viele Tiere gesehen, wir haben viele neue Erkenntnisse über Flora und Fauna und auch über Parkmanagement gelernt. Und das alles in der Gemeinschaft mit liebenswürdigen Menschen. Die Zeit bei LEO war ohne Zweifel ein Highlight während unseres bisherigen Sabbatjahrs. Ein Volunteering, das wir auf alle Fälle wärmstens empfehlen können und wir werden sicher wiederkommen. Von Herzen DANKE für die großartige Zeit bei LEO.

A fantastic and unique experience which I would recommend to everyone! The guides are really friendly and experts on their field. They explain all the facts and curiosities of animals and nature with such a contagious enthusiasm that you are willing to know more and more! And also they are always looking out for the fauna & environment treating it with plenty of respect and care, always doing their best for them! Congratulations Leo_Africa, continue like that! I wish you the best of luck and I hope to come back some day �����
