Exciting volunteer experience in south africa

”I travelled to South Africa with Lost Adventures for 4 weeks in May this year, to volunteer at a wonderful Wildlife Photography & Conservation project in Greater Kruger. Mikkel was extremely helpful in organising my trip and his knowledge of travelling around Africa and his attention to detail are excellent. My volunteer experience was much more than I could have imagined and I came home with many special memories and thousands of wildlife photographs.

I would definitely recommend Mikkel and Lost Adventures to anyone looking to book that special holiday and I have already rebooked another African adventure for myself and my daughter.”

Experience of a lifetime

”My mother and I wanted to have a volunteering experience in Africa. We came across Lost Adventures and were drawn to this company more than any other. We decided to do the Rhino and Elephant Conservancy project, Zimbabwe for a week. Mikkel made the whole signing up process very smooth and gave us all necessary details for the trip. The volunteering experience itself was just phenomenal, we wish we had booked to stay longer!(…).
The work experience was always varied so you got a good go at everything and they all made a valid contribution to the conservancy. The volunteers were an amazing bunch of people of all ages and nationalities, so this project is perfect for everyone. (…) 

I would strongly recommend signing up to this volunteer programme with Lost Adventures. We have made memories for a lifetime and I will surely do another project with them soon!”

Awesome traning course in the okavango delta

I spent 2 weeks on an amazing Field Guide course in Botswana in the Okavango Delta. Lost Adventures took very well care of me through the whole booking process, during the trip and after my return.
I always felt in good hands and had all the information I needed.

I will definitely choose Lost Adventures again for my next trip to the Delta.”

This is my second time booking with Mikkel and I will defenetly choose him again.
The best recommendations from me.
Thanks for all your help!”
