My Travel Story

by: Charlotte Tebble Start Date: Mar 22, 2018 - End Date: Jun 9, 2018
I am hoping to go and volunteer in the world famous Greater Kruger Area & work with underprivileged children in the local community, as well as conducting research on Africa’s Big 5 in the surrounding game reserves. I will be a part of a team monitoring the movements & behaviour of elephant herds, lion prides, elusive leopards, endangered rhino & the always impressive buffalo. I will also help with important conservation initiatives, such as creating new waterholes, removing alien plants & conducting share sweeps. We will be uplifiting schools by creating vegetable gardens to support vital feeding programs & income generation whilst also spending time joining reading clubs that provide one-on-one educational support to help local children’s English development. Although my parents will be helping to fund my trip by paying for flights & medical insurance, I would be grateful for any contributions towards the volunteer fund. All volunteer run programs rely on their contributions in order to remain running and providing the services they do. This is something I feel really passionate about.
