However, for those who are accepted, you will need to pay 20% of the balance within 14 days of being accepted on the programme, with the remaining 80% of the balance to be paid one month before arrival. Once we have confirmed your place, you will receive a pre-departure package with all detailed information on the project, details on the work in the Reserve, suggested items to bring etc.

Project Dates

The dates below are limited for 2020 and are the only ones you can apply for at present. You should plan to arrive in Johannesburg very early on the start morning for travel (takes 5-6 hours to the Reserve), or stay overnight in Johannesburg the night before and depart for the reserve the following day. There are several options available for overnight stays in Johannesburg which are safe and cheap and that we can recommend.   If you have any questions about the dates, please email the Volunteer Coordinator at:  victoria.mcneil@workingabroad.com
