"It was so touching to spend time with these amazing animals"

5 Star Icon

I have just returned home after spending 2 weeks volunteering there with the beautiful rescued elephants and Sloth bears. What an incredible and wonderful experience I had. It was so touching to spend time with these amazing animals and to learn about their backgrounds and the wonderful work the centre are doing in making their lives so much better. Equally important is the incredible work they are doing to help preserve the animals still living in the wild. While I was there, I was lucky enough to see a wonderful presentation by one of the founders of the project, what an amazing and inspirational human being. All the team there are so dedicated and loving towards the animals, which they so deserve after the lives they have had. As a volunteer, I was really looked after. Accommodation was really good and food delicious. All the staff were so kind, helpful and welcoming. Volunteering there was one of the biggest highlights of my life and I would so highly recommend it to anyone who would like an experience that is special beyond words. I will definitely be returning in the near future.

Everyone who is able should look into volunteering here. It was a remarkable and life changing event for me and I would not trade it for anything. The people in the organization are great and were tremendously helpful at giving me a first class experience and taking care of my needs while I was there. I would change nothing and I will probably go back and volunteer again. I loved it. First rate!
