But we hope you stick around. We’re just getting started at something pretty good.
Witness nature in its simplest form, from watching a lion hunt, to a newborn cheetah cub play, to a stand-off between two elephants. In the African bush you can never tell what you will find just around the corner… Travel to the home of the Big Five in the South African bush, assisting our team’s important conservation research.
This project gives you a real and unfiltered look into Africa’s incredible iconic wildlife. But unlike a tourist safari, you play an active and meaningful role in the research and long term conservation of South Africa’s natural resources in this stunning region of the world. You will volunteer alongside an international team to collect vital behavioral data on reintroduced predators and large herbivores on a private game reserve.
In order to assist with this vital conservation work, you will be trained to use research equipment to help locate predators in the reserve and you will receive invaluable training in large animal identification, tracking, and behavioral study skills. No special skills or qualifications are required to join this program, as all training will be provided by our fully qualified field teams. All we ask is an enthusiasm to learn and become fully involved and immersed in this unique opportunity.
Experiencing a unique African bush adventure at the heart of a spectacular game reserve; be woken by a dawn chorus and sent to sleep by the roar of lions; mastering radio telemetry techniques and learning to track animals through the bush; getting acquainted with big game and all the main predators, including lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant and rhino; exploring nearby regions to experience such breathtaking views as from the Blyde River Canyon in the Drakensberg Mountains; living and working alongside FGASA qualified South African Guides getting constant learning and inspiration; having the chance to sleep out in the bush under the spectacular African stars and wake up to a beautiful sunrise.
