Linnea Verho

The combination project was perfect! Being able to make a difference in the communities, while also being able to get involved with the lions was amazing. I loved working in the clinics, going on home visits and having the opportunity to take on a night shift at the maternity ward. The lions were an added bonus. But be warned, once you come you here, you will never want to leave!

I have been able to volunteer in the amazing photography project. I have been able to see first hand all the conservation and work this amazing place is doing while being fully emerged in the Zimbabwean culture. I have been able to capture many moments and shots while going on game drives through the bush and taking horseback safaris all over camp. The last few weeks have truly opened my eyes to the inner beauty of animal and given me the chance to follow my passions of photography. If you would like to experience wildlife and culture in some of its most natural elements I would suggest joining the photography project here at AP, its definitely an opportunity of a lifetime.

This is my 3rd time at Antelope Park and I am always pulled to come back. It’s such a special place with amazing horses you get to know so well and end up loving like your own. The opportunities are endless, from polocrosse to safaris. I’ve learnt so much about stable management and developed my riding skills in more ways than I could imagine. Cannot wait to come back!
