Climate change, the poaching crisis, and growing human populations mean South Africa’s wildlife is under threat like never before.
As a wildlife researcher on this project, you’ll join the team in creating a new kind of safari reserve where people and animals can live together in harmony.
Unlike other wildlife reserves, which are run for individual profit, the land here is owned by the local community, many of whom are from the Zulu nation. So its success is good for Africa’s people and good for Africa’s animals too.
Right now, this project is working alongside the WWF to expand the range of the endangered black rhino. As a volunteer, you’ll play a vital role in this amazing story and support the reserve’s research team in managing a huge variety of wildlife – including some of Africa’s largest populations of rhino and cheetahs.
Living on a safari reserve, you’ll have the chance to get closer to the animals than regular tourists. You’ll also learn about Africa's wildlife – including lions, cheetah, elephants, rhino and antelope – from the people who work with them every day.
“The team have provided me with memories that will last a lifetime and an endless amount of stories that I will treasure forever.”
