Zimbabwe is a landlocked country located in Southeast Africa, nestled between Mozambique, Zambia, Botswana, and South Africa. This project takes place at Antelope Park, a private game farm located 10km from the Gweru town center, in the heart of the Zimbabwe Midlands. Antelope Park is set in over 3000 acres of open savannah grassland.
Volunteer work on this project is greatly needed and much appreciated. During the week you will be involved in the community project.
Some of your tasks may include:
As a volunteer on this project you will serve as a mentor and a friend to youth. The need is so great which allows the opportunity for volunteers to get involved in a variety of ways depending on your experience and passion. Volunteer activities can range from working as a teaching assistant, cooking and serving food to street children, hosting workshops or study programs, sports development, gardening, facilitating youth camps focusing on life skills training, and efforts at uplifting the community through maintenance, refurbishment and painting as needed. This is a chance to make a difference in someone’s life as well as the chance to realize the reality of living in a third-world country with different cultural norms.
Over the weekend you will be taking part in the lion conservation activities.
Some of your tasks may include:
Internet: You will be able to send emails using our satellite broadband internet café at US$2.00 per 30 minutes. There is also activated WI – Fi should you wish to bring your laptop. The camps can experience power cuts, satellite malfunctions and server outages, so please be patient, and be aware that broadband in Africa is not nearly as fast as the connection you might be used to.
Laundry: A weekly laundry service is available at an additional fee of $5
Accommodations: Volunteer accommodations are a mixture of comfortable twin or quad thatched rooms at the main reserve camp with clean shower and toilet facilities located adjacent to the sleeping area. Your room will be cleaned daily by the housekeeping staff.
Food: Volunteers are provided with three meals a day, breakfast and dinner is served at the main camp of the reserve, and you will be given a packed lunch for your working day.

These trips are also a great time for volunteers to interact and get to know each other better.
