It is an unbelievable experience to go down the river on a boat and watch a herd of elephant bathing in the shallows and throwing water in their with their trunks while they keep a wary eye on you to ensure you don't get too close to their babies - it's an experience you never forget. I never have!

Teach Poor Children in a School in Livingstone
Teach in a school that is quite small and very basic, but makes you feel part of the family immediately! The school has approximately 57 boys and 68 girls between the ages of 6 and 18, some of whom are orphans.
You'll normally assist the teachers with informal teaching to start with, but, depending on your ability, you may be given complete control of a particular class or group. You can teach English or any other subjects, as well as assisting with sports during games periods.
