Protect Wildlife in Zimbabwe near the Victoria Falls!

Pays d’action: Zimbabwé, Afrique
Type d’activité: Missions avec animaux et vétérinaires
The reserve protects 4000 ha of the area’s rich natural heritage and is a sanctuary for Africa’s iconic game – including the critically endangered black rhino. It's a designated Intensive Protection Zone for the species and the only privately-owned reserve within the immediate vicinity of the Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World! A wild and wonderful experience!



Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Volunteers have the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in conservation management and assist with on-going conservation research, which are vital for the successful operation of the reserve, its surrounding areas, and their ecosystems. The reserve is home to an abundance of indigenous wildlife, including the Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and Cape buffalo – and serves as an Intensive Protection Zone for the critically endangered black rhino.

The exact nature of the work carried out will depend on the requirements of the reserve at the time. Typical activities include, but are not limited to, fence patrols, wildlife monitoring, alien vegetation removal and bush walks.

Schedule:
Volunteers typically work Monday – Friday with weekends off. An example of a summer schedule is as follows…

6.30am – 7.30am: Breakfast
8am – 12pm: volunteering
12pm – 3pm: Break, including lunch
3pm – 6pm: volunteering
6.30pm – 7.30pm: Dinner

Weekends:
There are no planned activities at the weekends but there is no shortage of optional activities to do in and around Victoria Falls town, from white- water rafting to sunset cruises. Victoria Falls is one of the largest and most spectacular waterfalls in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, situated within three separate national parks: Victoria Falls National Park (Zimbabwe), Zambezi National Park (Zimbabwe), and Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park (Zambia). Victoria Falls’ advantageous location also allows volunteers to easily visit the neighboring countries of Zambia and Botswana on the weekends.

Covid-19 Policy

When will we be able to accept volunteers again?
We have regrettably cancelled all of our trips and courses that were due to go ahead in Spring and Summer 2020. Our next scheduled trips will be not be departing until October 2020. We remain optimistic that are programs will return to normality by this time, but we are of course constantly monitoring the situation and are making decisions about the operation of our trips and courses on a rolling basis, based on the departure date. We have, however, begun to accept bookings from participants for trips in October 2020 which is great news and very encouraging.
We look forward to getting back to running our trips around the world, just as soon as it is safe, practical, and responsible to do so.

Can you apply now for future trips & courses?
Of course! We are currently taking bookings for trips and courses due to depart in October and beyond. Our ability to secure you a place on future trips has not been affected and we are planning future trips as usual.

What is your refund policy in light of Covid-19?
In light of the uncertainty surrounding international travel, we have recently launched flexible bookings for trips departing in 2020. You are now able to book a place on any program departing in 2020 with a fully refundable deposit plus free cancellations and changes up to 60 days before travel.
