We are Anna and Ronja from Germany and we volunteered for NGO Taxi and the animal shelter in Peru.

Can you imagine working in the jungle? Where it is hot and sometimes rainy? Can you imagine working with a monkey on your shoulder? Can you imagine working with a machete in the jungle with ants and other wild animals? Can you imagine showing tourists around in Spanish, English and sometimes German? Can you imagine discovering how little you need to be happy? Then it is the best project you can choose!

We worked there for about three weeks and it was the best time we had. Working with the “wild” animals was a great experience. They are not really wild, because they are all used to people and so they come to you and join you. Our daily work was preparing food for the animals, twice a day – in the morning and the afternoon, this takes a lot of time. Then the work depends on what is needed, most of the time after preparing the food we guided tourists through the project.

The work is hard work, but at end of the day, you can see what you’ve done and it is always something for the animals so it is good work.

The people in the nearby village and especially Cesar and his family are the nicest people you can imagine. They want you to feel at home and that everything is alright.

For us the animal shelter was the best project to choose.

Have a good time and if you go there: ask Cesar if you can try “Suri” – it’s the best thing you can do, trust us 🙂
