Summary

Wildlife Management Volunteer Experience

This Wildlife Management Volunteer programme gives volunteers from across the world, the opportunity to get hands-on experience in conservation management.  During your stay you may see yourselves as “Assistant Conservation Managers”, as all the work done and data collected by you will be utilized by the Game Rangers for conservation purposes on the reserve.  A dedicated coordinator will endeavour to ensure that you have a unique learning experience and leave with a stronger understanding of conservation issues feeling like you made an important contribution.

Our volunteers also get the opportunity to explore South Africa’s amazing coastline as the reserve is a mere 16 km from the sea… the beautiful Indian Ocean is literally on your doorstep!  This coastline has particularly rich marine fauna and flora as well as endless sand dunes and beautiful beaches.  To top it all off, we have a brilliant community outreach programme.  Our volunteers assist at a local rural farm school by teaching children basic subjects like English.  Come and make a real difference and have fun doing so!
