Volunteering at a wildlife sanctuary in Namibia

I volunteered for 2 weeks at the Namibia wildlife sanctuary and reserve. From the very start I had great communication with the mighty roar team keeping me up to date with what was needed and answering all my queries quickly. There was over 40 plus volunteers during my stay with a range of ages and people all over the world and I thoroughly enjoyed my time volunteering, with no two days being the same.

Helping steet dogs and sea turtles in Sri Lanka

My daughter Lizzie and I travelled to Sri Lanka in June to do the street dog programme. We have travelled a lot in the past but it was honestly one of the best trips of our lives! If you love animals, you’ll love this programme! TMR were a great support before we even arrived, they gave us all the info we needed in advance and we used the WhatsApp groups to get tips and share ideas or solve issues with our fellow volunteers too.

Julie's story

Eleven weeks helping wildlife in Thailand

I volunteered at the wildlife rescue centre and elephant sanctuary in Thailand for 11 weeks. I've made memories I'll cherish forever and friends for life. I worked 7 weeks with the wildlife, 1 week with the elephants and was lucky enough to get to work my remaining 3 weeks with the wildlife hospital in the sanctuary. The work was super rewarding and I hope to come back one day in the not too distant future!

Expect the unexpected teaching in India

Jaipur is the kindest and homeliest place I have ever travelled to. The city gives you so much love without expecting anything in return. I spent a total of nearly 4 weeks in Jaipur and 3 weeks volunteering and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. I spent each week in 3 different programmes –Teaching, Childcare and Special Care Needs and all of them were a completely different experience. If you’re in two minds on whether to go on this journey, do it!

Volunteering at Amakhala Game Reserve

I chose the Amakhala Big 5 programme in South Africa because it had such a large number of animals as well as some really fun ways to volunteer. The preparation for my trip was really easily made. I don’t think I could pick a favourite memory but I loved getting to know everyone else at the camp and on my last day we were given the opportunity to roll on the ground towards the giraffes and get really close which was incredible!

TMR Sri Lanka sea turtles & dogs

I went to Sri Lanka and did the sea turtle program and also helped on the street dog project. It was an amazing experience from start to finish. The highlight of my experience was seeing a female lay eggs. I have seen this so many times on the TV but to witness this with my own eyes was just an experience I will never forget! Sri Lanka it's self is a such a beautiful country all the locals are welcoming and kind. Thank you for an unforgettable experience. I have one regret not staying for longer!!

Laura's story

Medical elective in India

For my elective, I travelled to the North-western state of Rajasthan and stayed in the state’s capital of Jaipur. Wow! What an amazing experience I have had on my elective to India. I feel so fortunate to be able to have been given this opportunity through my medical degree, but also for the amazing team at The Mighty Roar for making this possible. This has been an experience that I will remember and use for not only my career, but also for the rest of my life. Thank you TMR for everything! You are all stars!!

Daisy's story

Ghana childcare and medical

The best time of my life in Ghana. I participated in both the childcare and medical programme in Busua, Ghana over a span of 2 weeks. This was my first time solo travelling, but I made the most amazing friends both on the aeroplane and out there!! There were about 12 of us all together this early in the year which was the perfect amount! The local team were super friendly and there for all of us the entire duration of the trip. I’ve made many of my favourite memories here and definitely plan on returning to the beautiful village of Busua!

Isla's story

Teaching English On The Beach In Bali

Travelling the world has always been a dream of mine, but having never been away from home for longer than a week, uprooting my life for two months on the other side of the world seemed something completely infeasible for me. The Mighty Roar came with the best reviews and Bali seemed the obvious choice. I have many incredible Bali memories, from the Gili Islands to Nusa Penida, Canggu to Ubud, but my highlight has to be the time spent within the local community.
