I just returned from a month in South Africa at Bambelela and I could not be happier with my experience! I was looking for an amazing place to have hands on experience with animals!
Firstly the monkeys were incredible! It was amazing to learn all about the lives of the vervets and to have hands on experiences with the Kindergarten and the handicap cages! The best part of the trip in my eyes was getting to know each and every baby monkey and building relationships with them!
Secondly the people were amazing all the permanent staff do their absolute best to make your experience at Bambelela as awesome as possible! Id like to make a special mention of Sarah the volunteer coordinator. No one works harder to make your stay amazing and to make you as comfortable as possible. She had a huge part of making my experience as amazing as possible and it was incredible seeing her work as hard as she did everyday.
Overall bambelela was an amazing experience, even when cleaning cages and doing work I was having a great time and was feeling good about my contribution to a great cause.
If I was to go back in time i would choose bambelela again and I really hope that one day I can return for another amazing experience!
