Volunteer Travel in Zimbabwe

Jump to last reply

I am hoping to travel to Zimbabwe for a period of three weeks for one of two wildlife volunteer projects (my life's dream). I am concerned about:
1. Safety: I am with a reputable organization through the trip, but is the gov't so unstable that I will still be in serious danger?
2. Timing: January is the only time I can go, but I have heard that it is not optimal for viewing wildlife. Is it still worth going?
3. Malaria: I understand that January is in the wet season. Is anyone aware of the actual chances of contracting Malaria if the proper medication is taken?

Thanks!
