Our 20 year old daughter Cecilia has just returned from a 4 week stay at Shamwari Conservation Experience in South Africa. She has had the most incredible time and learned so much about wildlife and conservation in South Africa. She has had the time of her life and met so many amazing people from around the world, and has gained lifelong friendships :). We can not thank Mikkel enough for his commitment, engagement and very professionel manner. He was always quick to respond to our mails if we had any questions. As a nervous mom sending our daughter around the world, we were not at one point worried :) After being back for a few weeks our daughter is already talking about joining another of Mikkels programs with Lost Adventures in the near future :) Thank you, Mikkel for making this possible, and for being SO hands on and committed through it all.
I spent 4 weeks at the Shamwari Conservation Experience, and had an absolutely unforgettable time there. Mikkel was beyond helpful with providing information and answering questions, there was never a moment I felt unsafe or unprepared thanks to him. I couldn't have found a better place to volunteer - thank you Mikkel for all of your help and for making this experience possible for me!
I had a great experience booking my African trip through lostadventures. Mikkel makes sure that you feel safe and he will answer any questions any time of the day. Even during the stay in Africa he wrote me and made sure I was fine.
This is my second time booking with Mikkel and I will definitely choose him again. The best recommendations from me.
Thanks for all your help!
Had the time of my life at one of the wildlife programs and that’s all because of Mikkel and Lost adventures. All my questions were answered and I felt safe on my travels due to the great help I got. Would definitely recommend these guys! Truly the best!
Mikkels service and help can only be described as uncanny. I was originally going to Botswana to volunteer but there was some complications with the project there so unfortunately my trip had to be cancelled. This was 2 weeks before I was due to leave for Africa. Mikkel then went above and beyond to find me another project I could go to. He reached out to all of his contact and managed to find me another project. Since then, I've managed to stay and made myself a life there. Mikkel has more or less made one of my dream come true and I will always be grateful for what he has done for me.
Jeg vil helt klart anbefale Mikkel, hvis man har brug for hjælp og vejledning i forbindelse med at arrangere sin rejse!
Han informerede om alle de ting, som jeg havde spekuleret over i forbindelse med både flyrute og afgangetidspunkter, visa og vaccinationer, og han hjalp også med valg af selve projektet,som jeg var afsted på. Han var meget behjælpelig i forbindelse med forberedelse ang. pakningen og var hurtig til at svare på spørgsmål,som jeg spurgte om, - både flere måneder før afrejse ,-og også blot et par timer før afgang.
Alt sammen gjorde, at jeg følte mig tryg og klar til at tage afsted. Jeg følte at jeg var blevet forberedt på bedst mulig vis! Det var en helt fantastisk rejse, og jeg følte at det var den bedste vejledning, som jeg kunne få ,da Mikkel dels har en masse erfaring med projekter og rejser, og dels fordi at han altid var tilgængelig og behjælpelig - og fokuserede meget på at rejsen blev tilrettelagt efter hvad jeg ønskede. :)
Mikkel hjalp mig til at finde den perfekte destination til frivilligt arbejde. Hans store erfaring og viden om arbejde med dyr og natur, gør ham kvalificeret til at give kompetente råd om hvilket projekt der ville passe dig bedst, ud fra dine egne ønsker og behov.
Derudover stiller Mikkel sig altid til rådighed angående eventuelle spørgsmål, hvad end de måtte være praktiske eller mere teoretiske om dyrenes og naturens gang. Dette giver en stor tryghedsfølelse, hvilket er et solidt fundament for at engagere sig i et projekt.
Baseret på dette kan jeg med sikkerhed anbefale at benytte sig af Mikkels ekspertise. Han er en ildsjæl der brænder for at hjælpe med at forbinde mennesker og projekter, således at man kan gøre en forskel inden for et, for en selv, relevant område.
The research project in Kenya Maasai Mara was à wonderful experience in the wild, living very closely to wild animals. There are no fences at all so big animals (even lions) are free to go wherever they want and even come very close to the camp at night. You can hear them roar which is amazing. The staff is so amazing and fun. I also had the chance to meet wonderful maasai people :) as one of my duties was to give French classes to the Maasai students. I learnt a lot on their livestyle and culture. I really admire how they still live with their ancient traditions. This project is a very good example of humans finding a good balance with the wild. Best experience ever and I trully recommend!
Real experience of wild lifetime, the savannah has given us much more than we had hoped ! It was the first time for us to get involved in a volunteer project in Africa, and not the last ! 2 weeks of adventure and volunteering for ever in our memory. Africa, we will meet again very soon!
