    hiya,

    I haven't actually been on a trip with them before, but I am planning to next summer. I have looked everywhere online for reviews and all I've heard are positive reviews that say its good value for money and better than companies that are out to make a big profit. Enkosini seems like a smaller company, where the money almost goes entirely to cover your accomodation, food expenses and expertise of the the staff onsite.

    I get the impression from the website and reviews that this experience is really worthwhile and isn't just a money-making enterprise, but instead your volunteering makes a big difference. I have checked out other companies such as RealGap, I-to-I and STA travel and found that most of their reviews were poor and said that once you had paid your money, they weren't so interested in you. Many people also said that most of the money didn't go towards the charity centre they were working at. :bigsmile:

    Which one of the Enkosini projects do you like the look of? They all seem quite expensive but I think we would get better value for money with this company, rather than with a multi-national business.

    Sorry I couldn't be any more help than this!

    hiya,
    can you quote me next time, so I know you've replied
    I want to do the Noah's Ark one and I am pretty sure I am going to next summer. I really want to get some experience with the animals mainly as I wish to study Zoology at university and become more independant and confident.
    when were you thinking of travelling?
