This thread is marked as being about South Africa

Hi all,
I am planning to go travelling as from Feb next year for as long as I can! (was planning on going in Sept but have some work commitments before I go!) I was origionally just planning to go to Australia. But as I love animals and South Africa ( I used to live in Phalaborwa at a very young age with my parents and have been back visiting for many years since!) I have decided to undertake some voluntary work before I go and work with Baboons in Phalaborwa for a month or so before I take up full time travelling, has anyone got any advice or any experiances they can tell be about before I take up my travels? Or any other ideas on voluntry work in South Africa I can do! Any help or advice would be much appreciated!!
