Volunteer with big cats from Scotland

Hi my name is Holly and I’m from Scotland and I’m here in South Africa living with the big cats .

I’m studying animal care back at home and we had to do work experience and we chose to do say volunteer southern Africa big cats project to help us with our work experience and while we’ve been here we have done so much activity as it’s been great and the other morning we went on an elephant walk the one thing that I really love that we’ve done was walking with the Lions .

We do a lot of hard work we do a lot of enrichment of enclosures for the animals putting up new fences or cleaning up enclosures or painting fences it’s been more than that what I would call it was going to be and coming here you’re made to feel like you’re part of like a team you instantly feel comfortable around everybody everyone makes you feel so welcome and you make like the best of friends .
