This project is based in the Greater Kruger Area close to the famous Kruger National Park–one of the largest game reserves in Africa and home to Africa’s ‘Big 5’ species. The park stretches across the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces in northeastern South Africa. With over 500 bird species, 100 reptiles, 150 mammal species, multiple archaeological sites, and an equally diverse array of trees and flowers, Kruger truly exemplifies the majesty of Africa. The closest town is Phalaborwa, just 30 minutes from the camp. Here you’ll find a few shops and a handful of local restaurants.
This project aims to both study and conserve some of Africa’s unique and beautiful wild animals and the land they roam on. It is a joint effort which collaborates with local and distant communities, universities, and other reserves to learn as much as possible about these animals and their behaviors to better provide them with a suitable environment in which to thrive.
Volunteers will carry out research on endangered wildlife within the reserve. This provides critical information for dedicated organizations to improve and create wildlife conservation strategies.
Some of your tasks may include:
