I did a 1 week volunteer with the Imire Rhino and Elephant project. It was simply unforgettable as I saw first hand how the White and Black Rhinos were roaming happily in the wild. They also treated the African Elephants really well, though the elephants returns to their night den to sleep. I do hope that like the Rhinos, they will be roaming freely. The project has spent so much effort to conserve these beautiful creatures. It was heartening to see the hard work they put to fight poaching, which I feel is sad and disgusting. Other actvities include learning about the Shona people's culture, helping to plant trees, fix the fences and also helped out at the Numba Mother's Support Group. As education is very important, I hope the community there will continue to further their education and ultimately graduate with a degree. I am simply blessed to be part of it. Special shoutout to Bright Julias (who was with us 90% of the ), Mai Matsika (school program) and Diogo (thanks for the enjoyable night drive!). They are one of the few pillars alongside Sam and Vera who made the Volunteer Program a great success!

When I arrived at Imire, for my first solo trip, I was worried about not liking it, and not getting on with the other volunteers. But after a week at this amazing place I began to enjoy it more and more each day. All of the activities I did felt as though I was properly helping the world (even in a tiny way) and I have learnt so much more than I could have ever imagined. Every single person I have met while on this incredible trip have been some of the most welcoming, friendly and amazing people I have ever met. I couldn’t have wished for a better experience. I will treasure every single little moment of my time here at Imire and I will definitely spread the word about this amazing opportunity! I am going to be extremely sad to leave, but I’m sure I’ll return in the not too distant future. Thank you for an incredible 5 weeks at Imire! Truly a life changing experience! 🐘🦏

This park has everything. Elephants, Zebra, Lion, Giraffe, Rhino, Warthog and many more. The elephant experience is just incredible. It is quite pricey but you do get a lot for your money, with a lovely breakfast and lunch. You should definitely visit Imire if visiting Harare.

I volunteered at Imire for 2 weeks, and the experience was so good that it’s honestly beyond any description I make here. I feel like every moment here was special as it had its own lesson to be learned and experience to be lived. I had initially volunteered for the wildlife, but my greatest eye opening experiences came from the people and the surrounding communities involved with Imire. And here, as a volunteer, you can also get involved in every area, which is a privilege that not many people have the opportunity to experience. I’m now more aware of the tremendous effort that goes into running a successful conservation project, and how without every aspect working together a project like this could easily become unsustainable. And by personally handling Elephant and Rhino, I also became much more conscious about the impact that this project has on the responsible conservation of these vulnerable species… though big in size, they’re so sensitive and deserving of the utmost respect and admiration. Volunteering at Imire is a big responsibility, but it’s fulfilling and it’s a heck of a lot of fun. Days are long and filled with activities like handling and walking with elephants, tracking and feeding rhinos with anti-poaching teams, teaching kids how to read and express creativity, helping the adorable ladies with their community projects, meeting locals, horseback riding with the loveliest people, game drives, game counts, field assessments, building rafts, planting trees, cleaning lion enclosures, chasing incredible sunsets, and plenty more with people who are genuinely excited to have you there, and look out for you. In fact, the entire team and house staff will move mountains to make your stay an incredible and memorable one from the moment you arrive to the moment you depart Harare airport. This is one piece of paradise I’ll be returning to for sure, and highly recommend to anyone that’s into responsible conservation. As I’m writing, I can’t help but recall good memories and songs sung with a lit soul and a smile on my face. Imire: Rhino & Wildlife Conservation, this is all on you! :D Thank you! “We’re happy to be together”
