The past few weeks have been full of amazing experiences. I felt honored to be involved here, learned a lot about Africa and met great people. I am so glad I came here – this experience was unforgettable!


The people I’ve met, the memories that were created will no doubt stay with me for a lifetime . You end up running out of adjectives describing this place … incredible, surreal, unbelievable are just a few of the many words that spring to mind.


Where to start. This has been the best experience of my life. I love South Africa – it’s full of life, energy and peace. It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to, with breathtaking views and amazing animals. I go back home with memories and moments that I’ll never forget.


I have learnt more valuable information in a week and a half than I have through all of school. I cannot wait to keep learning and growing on this field guide course.
