Steve Owen, UK
I have no idea where to begin! Every day of my 17 weeks has been a highlight! As I was at Imire for so long, I really got to see the difference that volunteers make in the park - maintaining roads, building structures and cleaning the park.
Rachel Miller, New Zealand
am not kidding when I say I could pitch a tent on the vol house lawn and live at Imire forever. The place is incredible. The rides out over Imire were breathtaking and we got to see many areas and sights that you just would not see by vehicle.
Marcia Bains-Grebner, USA
I am a 60 year-old retired attorney who decided it was time to do something worthwhile. All was right with the world since I was surrounded by a content black rhino and four obviously happy elephants.
Alice Stotter, Portugal
The highlights of my trip, of course, were the elephants and rhino, but also the other, beautiful animals – the giraffes, the buffalo, even Crispen the crocodile and the two hyenas.
