I wanted to spend some of my travel time volunteering. For me, it was a chance to “give” to a noble cause, gain a deeper travel experience (not just beach hopping) and to be a responsible traveler. Typically, the volunteer schemes can be split into one of Animals, Teaching, Community.

Being an animal loving vegetarian, it was clear that my preference was for an animal related scheme. I decided upon one called the Elephant Nature Park. which I’ve booked for one week starting 5th November.
