TESTIMONIALS

FOR ENKOSINI ECO EXPERIENCE

*Testimonials for each individual project can be found at the bottom of each project webpage*

"My trip to South Africa was great!  The 2 projects I volunteered for, Siyafunda and ORCA, were full of experiences I will never forget.  It was very interesting and all the people working for the organizations and the other volunteers were friendly, sincere in their efforts and helpful in many ways.  Thank you for all your help and for having a great website that helped inspire me to make it happen. I went over with no expectations other than see and experience some of South Africa's wilderness, its creatures, its conservation programs and its culture.  I did.  Hopefully, I gave something back to the projects and helped further their conservation initiatives.  It was nice hanging out with like minded people who truly care about the animals, mammals, birds, fishes, insects, trees and the general well-being of all life on this planet. Everyone's willingness to share their knowledge and to share in experiences made for a relaxing and educational time."

-Dana Kimball, United States

 

"I just wanted to let you know what an absolutely amazing time I had at Makalali. The set up there is fantastic and Patson, Andrews, Mike and Hannes are brilliant. They were so welcoming and taught me so much. Thank you for your help in organising my stay and I hope to return next year. -Sam Barley, Australia

 

"I know that you helped out a lot with everything from transportation to visa requirement info throughout my trip, and I just personally wanted to say thank you VERY much. This was a wonderful trip and the Enkosini Eco Experience has been one of the greatest times of my life. Your coordinating and information gathering made things so much easier, so thanks again! -Lawrence Marte, United States

 

"I just wanted to say thank you for allowing me to go to Kariega Game Reserve.  I had such an amazing time and it was an experience I will always remember! Helana and Dirk were fantastic and made my stay both interesting and fun; and supplied us with everything we could possibly have needed. I feel I have learnt a lot and every task I took part in was rewarding. I hope every other volunteer enjoys themselves as much as I have! Thanks again!   -Katrina Dixon, England

 

"Wow!!! What an incredible conversation we just had, truly inspirational and I am pumped up and excited about getting involved with the right projects. Any additional info you have on your projects will be greatly appreciated! Thanks again for all of your time and insightful information!" -Lisa Ross, United States

I'm now back from South Africa and I wanted to say THANK YOU. I had the best time ever, you're doing a great job. I'm seriously thinking of coming back for a longer period of time, four to six months! -Sophia LeRoy, France

"Thanks so much for all you do at Enkosini and for this great experience for Megan and Kyle. Megan called Monday and was so excited about all she was learning, about the amazing tracker who is teaching them, and the animals they had seen. I believe this will have a huge affect on Megan and help her choose her path in life. Thank you! -Joan Naylor, United States

"I've just completed a month at Makalali, staying at the Siyafunda Bush Camp and had the most fantastic time of my life.  I can't wait to return. Thanks to everyone who helped me arrange the trip and to everyone I met along the way who made bush camp and the Siyafunda Bush Experience such an unforgettable time." -Luke Harding, England

"I want to say thank you for all your help in this process over the past few months. You've been very kind and very helpful. You've made it so much easier. I'm very excited to finally get to Africa!"  -Lindsey McKinney, United States

"I just wanted to send you an email to thank you for all your help. I went to Noah's Ark and had the most unbelievable experience.  Thank you for everything and I hope all is well at Enkosini." - Andrea Stein, United States

"I did a year of volunteering last year and participated in your programs with Baboons in August and Penguins in September.  I can honestly say that [two] of my best volunteer experiences last year were with your organization. Thanks again for the opportunity to have such a special experience." -Jane Stanfield, United States

"I've been having a fantastic time at Enkosini, Makalali and ORCA - thanks a million for all you do.  Only now do I realize how many people you deal with every day and how busy you are!" -Kate Mitchell, Canada 

"I wanted to thank you very much for all of your help, patience, and promptness when responding to my thousands of questions.  Also, you guys were very honest and upfront about what the experience would be like and what was needed, which I learned while there and speaking with volunteers who were misled by other organizations.  Hope all is well!  -Corie Robertson, United States

"Last Saturday we returned from a wonderful vacation and experience at the beautiful Kariega Game Reserve. We enjoyed it very very much and we thank you that you recommended it to us.  Everything was well arranged and prepared. They have a varied volunteer program where you experience a lot! We learned new things about animals and plants and experienced the real life of the Xhosa people who live there. It was great fun!!  We are already saving money for a next year's South African vacation so we will keep in touch because we are very pleased with your organisation." -Rene Verhaar & Magda Rozenboom, Netherlands

"Just a quick email to say a big thank you for organising the trip for me.  It was out of this world, particularly sleeping with the cheetahs and running one up to 80km/h.  I will be booking further programmes through you in 2009 when I plan to tour Southern Africa properly.  Thanks again and have attached a picture that I think you might like from my trip!" -Olly Milward, England
