An opportunity for wildlife volunteers and interns to get involved in conserving and researching the endangered African Wild Dog, monitoring Leopards, Elephants and other important species within a beautiful 20,000 hectare game reserve in Botswana on the banks of the famous Limpopo River.
Limpopo Lipadi is 20,500 hectares in size and contains 40 different mammal species and 372 birds with only 10 volunteers at a time making it a meaningful small group experience. Set on the banks of the famous Limpopo River, and one of the most beautiful wilderness locations in the world, Limpopo-Lipadi Game Reserve offers a wide array of activities to volunteers.
In your free time, volunteers can go hiking along the Limpopo river with a chance to observe crocodile, hippo and impressive bird life, go on safari or on night drives, spotlighting for rare creatures such as bush babies, aardvarks and bat eared foxes, go climbing on Lipadi Hill which towers about 300m above the reserve, or visit nearby villages.
