Students say…

Team Indlulamitsi – 2018 (SHSK)

“Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity that you’ve given us. We’ve all learnt so much about the differences in culture here alongside new kills which we’ll take with us for years to come.

It has also inspired some of us to travel and others to volunteer.

We’ve loved it and we can’t thank you enough, and we hope you expand your business so others can have the same opportunities!”

“A brilliant trip, lots and lots of fun for everyone, as well as being in a completely different environment and having the challenge of mostly taking care of ourselves on a day-to-day basis, with the right amount of help and guidance.

Thank you so much!!”

Ellie – 2014
“There are so many highlights to choose from…

they vary massively from meeting so many awe-inspiring people to having an male nyala come right up to me and having a sniff within our campsite at Mlilwane at dusk on the second day! However, if I had to choose just one highlight it would probably be seeing how happy and grateful Sophie was for everything that we have done to help her. The smile and sheer joy in her eyes is something that I will never be able to forget.”

Sarah – 2014
“Sense Africa is a company that provides unmissable opportunities.

Their organisation is impeccable and the whole trip ran so smoothly. They allowed us to help locals on a direct level whilst having so much fun and creating so many amazing memories and leaving us with stories to dine out on for a lifetime! Thank you so very much for everything.”

Issy – 2014
“I just wanted to say thank you for making this such an enjoyable trip. I’ve had such an amazing time, and this is down to your hard work over the past couple of years, so thank you so much.

I’ve got to know everyone so much better, and all of the projects were so rewarding and great fun. I now have many happy memories of our time in Swaziland.

I wish I was still out there! I can’t thank you enough.”

Bee, David, Toby, Swag, Howdy, Rian, Anna, Ben and Jed – 2013
“Thank you so much for the last three weeks. We have all had an amazing experience, that we will never forget, due to your hard work, enthusiasm and care.”

Emily – 2012
“I cannot quite find the words to show my gratitude for everything you did to make Swaziland trip so unforgettable. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful country with us and now I understand why you love it so much! The people, the animals and the beautiful landscapes Swaziland will magical.

I know that we were probably quite a handful but I hope you realise what an incredible experience it was!

It certainly sparked a desire to continue travelling to such lovely countries for me. 

So thank you again to everything, please visit us at school!”

Hannah – 2012
“Thank you so much for organising such an amazing trip to Swaziland! It was such a worthwhile experience and I loved every moment of it. I particularly enjoyed spending time with the children and the zip wire day.”

Fiona – 2012
“Thank you so much the such a wonderful trip to Swaziland! I enjoyed every second of it all the way from Sondzelas to Legends, with some amazing times and places in between!

Mayenjane is now one of my favourite places to. It was lovely coming home to rhino by the waterhole. The Mabuda farm been another lovely place and I have so many great memories from my time there!

It was a brilliant first experience of Africa and really opened my eyes…

especially at Mayenjane where I really enjoyed my time there would definitely love to go back sometime to see the project and the children. Overall thank you so much for such a great opportunity and an absolutely wonderful time there.

It was a truly valuable and amazing experience!

“Thank you so much for such a memorable and thought-provoking experience.


I have a brilliant time and already can’t wait to get back to Swaziland or do something similar elsewhere!!”

Sophie – 2012
“A massive thank you for everything in Swaziland, it was an expedition (not a holiday!) that I will never ever forget and I now have so many treasured memories.”

Ellen – 2010
“I just wanted to say another HUGE thank you for the incredible past four weeks of my life. Oh and the elephant, who I haven’t yet been able to bring myself to set alight.

It was truly amazingly brilliantly fantastically awesome.

And it wouldn’t have happened without you. So thank you.”

Bex – 2010
“I also wanted to say huge thank you for leading such an amazing trip!

I honestly think it’s the best experience I’ve ever had and was made so much better by the fact that you knew all these exciting places to go to which I would have probably missed if I’d gone on a gap year by myself.”
