UmPhafa truly is a special place and was an experience I will never forget. Whether you have an interest in conservation or just want the adventure of a lifetime spending time with some amazing African animals in their natural habitat, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff are all amazing especially the Coordinators Sarah and Jandre, they are so welcoming and friendly.

I had never done anything like this before, travelling 8500 miles on my own and being away from my home in the UK for two months, but I can honestly say it is the best thing I have ever done. If you are in any doubt about whether you should do, just go for it, you won’t regret it.

I made friends for life, both animals and human, learnt vital conservation skills and have memories that will last a lifetime. I hope to go back some day…
