12 months ago I packed my bags for a 2 month adventure around Africa! These views stole my heart Victoria Falls, Zambia & Zimbabwe #ivhqweekends #africa #ivhq #zimbabwe #zambia #victoriafalls #wondersoftheworld #bucketlist #openmyworld
Here we are taking out Lantana bushes in Africa because they are invasive to the land. Our job is to conserve the land at Nakavango. You definitely need four people to take out one "little" Lantana plant. The roots were thick, nasty, and the plants were sharp. Every Friday is nothing but Blood, Sweat, and Tears. Don't get tricked we are smiling for the camera but when the camera wasn't taking pictures, we weren't so excited. It did feel great to push yourself that hard to help save the wildlife though. Missing Lantana Friday's but I guess I'll have pictures and battle scars to remind me of it. #NakaNaka #Victoriafalls #Zimbabwe #Africa #Volunteer #ivhqvictoriafalls #ivhq
What a big family! #NakaNaka treated me very well. We explored Victoria Falls on this day and got the chance to be tourists. Though Africa has its scary side, the side that many don't see is one of the most beautiful side of all; the falls. The view was breathtaking and yet every photo will never do it justice. Thank you @ivhq for the most life changing volunteer trip I'll ever take. #ivhqvictoriafalls #ivhq #Volunteer #Victoriafalls #Africa #Zimbabwe #GroupPhoto
During our animal tracking adventure, we came across the Black Rhinos of #NakaNaka There are only eight on the reserve and they are fully protected, being as they are an endangered species. My goal is to show you pictures of these beautiful animals and hope you find interest in conserving their land as much as I am. Conserving land happens over a period of time and while I was working in Zimbabwe I already felt like I made a difference in the world. Taking out invasive species, picking up rubbish, and etc. These animals need our help, I encourage everyone to find some kind of way to #giveback .
