  • Overall, this whole trip has changed me in so many ways. I never had a trip like this before. I will be doing it again for sure. ISV has let me experience South Africa in a way I never would have otherwise. I'm so much more capable than I thought. A little goes a long way with volunteering and I loved this whole experience.

  • Simply amazing experience. I did not want to leave South Africa and I would come back anytime or go anywhere else with ISV.

  • ISV is one of the best experiences I could ask for in my life. I cannot think of any better way, or any other organization, that could successfully combine volunteer work/education/tourism and adventure so smoothly into four weeks!!! It's a grand cultural experience that is worth every penny. Go ISV!!!

  • South Africa is an amazing place to volunteer. The locals make you part of the community for the short time you are there. The volunteer work has truly opened my eyes to see things from a different perspective and I am forever thankful.

  • Often it is easy to overlook the importance/ value in nature and volunteering to give back. This ISV trip taught and reminded me that we as global citizens play a role in promoting this value back to the bigger community. Thank you ISV for organizing such an awesome trip opportunities for us and I would want to volunteer under you again.
