It was amazing to volunteer at the Lion Park. I was very anxious to start this work in South Africa and I already knew that I would like it. But it was so much better than I imagined, I realised this since my first day at the Lion Park. I really loved everything: people, animals, work...

It has been 4 weeks that I am here, and it is amazing how we . . .
I'm very happy to be at Lion Park getting to know new people and having different experiences interacting with the animals. Thank you to my new friends and staff.
