Volunteered at Kwantu for two weeks and it was an amazing experience. Staff were very friendly through out my stay and the Rangers were brilliant with a lot of knowledge to learn from. Game drives were excellent seeing various anaimals from the big five up close. Overall very clean and make you feel comfortable would recommend going to anyone.
