Game Reserves

Volunteer at a Game Reserve

Game reserves are areas of land, designed to allow wild animals which are often hunted for food or sport, to roam freely away from poachers or hunters. Many reserves are open to the public, giving visitors the chance to experience a wide range of fauna in its natural habitat, commonly on safari tours, or as part of a conservation program or rehabilitation project.

Also known as game parks, these areas are usually large, open havens for a diverse mix of wildlife. Volunteering as a game ranger makes for an exciting and unique gap year experience, and it is a great opportunity to help monitor and conserve our natural heritage and biodiversity.

South Africa is the world’s most popular game park and safari destination, particularly famous for its “big five game,” which are considered by hunters to be the most elusive of “trophies.” Hunting of these large, wild land mammals—lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes—has driven them close to extinction, but a number of conservation projects exist to help ensure their survival.
