    What else ...

    We are principally a wildlife safari destination and very isolated. Volunteers are free to join scheduled activities, which include bush walks and game drives, and supply runs to either Livingstone or Itezhi-Tezhi, which take place, on average, once every 7 to 10 days. Livingstone is the nearest major centre, and the Victoria Falls, and associated activities, the major attraction.
