S1 E2: Rhino Conservation in Africa with Worldwide Experience

This post most likely contains affiliate links to things such as tours, accommodation, Amazon associates and products. This means when you use the link I may receive a small commission at no additional charge to you, this helps to keep this blog going.

In this episode I speak to Taryn Ingram-Gillson from Worldwide Experience about the incredible trips they offer in Africa and across the globe. I took a trip with Worldwide Experience in 2017 which was nothing short of incredible, I really support them and what they stand for as a company with responsible and sustainable tourism.

About Worldwide Experience

Worldwide Experience, initially called Eco Africa Experience, developed a conservation volunteer programme on the reserve in response to demand. It was this demand that drove the inspiration and commitment to developing a safe, supervised and structured programme delivered by professionals, for students and volunteers where they could not only learn about wildlife and conservation, but gain hands-on experience in the field, allowing them to make a difference to the natural ecosystems and surrounding communities.

We also have a big chat about the current rhino crisis across Africa as well as a heart warming chat about rhino conservation and how appropriate it is that the collective name for a group of Rhino is called a crash!

If you would like to find out how you can book a trip with Worldwide Experience, you can visit their website.

The trip I took with them was Vets Go Wild and you can find out about some more of the trips they offer here.
