Brilliant experience. Moaz actually loves what he is doing. His energy and knowledge sharing quality is perfect and we definitely learnt a lot from him. I came all the way from Abu Dhabi but the experience was totally worth it. Look forward to see him and other amazing people again and make a positive contribution.

Great time with Mouaz who is so instructive and knowledgeable. Not sure we really helped him in checking the cameras but we did learn a lot. Looking forward to meeting him again and make a change.

Amazing experience of learning about wildlife.
