    My first time in Africa, and what a wonderful experience this was! There are a lot of projects in Africa, but you must do your research to find a good one. And trust me this one is!
    When I landed on the airport a driver was waiting for me, it was a 3 ours drive to the wildlife centre, there I was welcomed with open arms. From the first moment I felt like home. What a nice place and lovely people! My first week started with the Wildlife Rehabilitation Course, this was their first rehab course and I am happy that I joined it! If you want to know and learn more about wildlife and rehabilitation, this course is a great opportunity. I really learned a lot in this week. A few things we did: food preparation and feeding techniques, animal behavioural observation, making enrichment for the monkeys, orphan handling and feeding, assisting with health checks (with vervet monkeys darting (with a blowpipe and dart pistol), traveling to Kyabobo National Park (to see the group of released vervet monkeys) and a lot more!
