Volunteer at a wildlife reserve in South Africa. An ideal opportunity for conservation students looking to gain relevant skills, or anyone interested in experiencing African wildlife in a natural setting.
My time was spent meeting absolutely amazing people, experiencing the beautiful South African wilderness by working in the field and relaxing at a camp in the heart of the bush.
Click to watch a unique nighttime camera trap sighting of one of the reserves brown hyenas, a very rare event!
This project offers the chance to have a true bush experience and gives you the chance to live amongst the abundant wildlife, as all camps are unfenced and game drives are done in open vehicles.
The wildlife reserve covers an area of 4,760 Ha (11,763 acres) and is situated in the malaria-free North-West Province of South Africa.
During your days off, volunteers can visit many local attractions including nearby National Parks, Kgaswane Mountain Reserve, the mining town of Rustenburg, and the resorts at Sun City.
