This programme is designed for volunteers that are interested in having a truly African experience while making a difference to the local wildlife and environment. Activities for this programme vary on a day-to-day basis and are dependent on weather and various other factors.
The game reserve is situated outside Port Elizabeth. The reserve is a host to a variety of wildlife including the Big 5. In addition to the mixture of grasslands, sub-tropical vegetation,
fynbos and bushveld, it also has naturally formed pockets of water, amazing rock formations and splendid flora.
Scheduled transfers normally run as follows (times may change slightly to accommodate volunteers)
I enjoyed my stay, I learned many cultures, to talk to many students from different nations, besides just studying English. It’s a good experience.
I want to improve my English that’s why I’ve been staying for one month at LAL. It was a good experience because I met people from different countries, new friends and I can practice English everyday.
Cape Town is a lovely place, I really enjoy it. The teachers in LAL teach well and they are so cool. The staff in the school is also sociable. Concerning my accommodation, I like it, my room is clean and has enough space even I shared it.
I’m very glad of this school and I love this city. First day, I met many new people who are very friendly. I have only one teacher, but in the corridor, I met many other teachers who talked with me and it was nice. My teacher Heilen is very good teacher.
Every time she helps us with everything. My classmates are friendly and with a positive mood. Every other people in LAL are very kind and I’m very grateful for everything here.
I thank all the staff of LAL School for my language stay in Cape Town. Teachers are very good and school facilities such as internet connection, activities and the food are satisfactory.
I’d like to take this time to say something about the time I spent in Cape Town, especially the accommodation. Even if my host family is away from here by walking, Ms Bev Lucraft and her mother are friendly and they did everything they could to look after me. I recommend to the LAL to choose that host family to the others students because it is a good stay.
Teachers are good at English and they gave me all English I’m looking for and other facilities to succeed. I’ll recommend other students to take part in LAL.
The English courses and teachers were funny. All staff is very kind, smiled and prepared to help. I was satisfied and felt like at home. The food in lunch was really tasty.
