Wildlife Conservation South Africa


If you want to get close to South Africa’s wildlife and actively involved in protecting its incredible animals and habitats then our Wildlife Conservation South Africa programme is just for you!

You can chose from the following projects:

  • Look after lions and cubs on the Lion Project
  • Monitor cheetahs, buffalos and leopards on the Cheetah Research Project
  • Help conserve rhinos and elephants on the Rhino and Elephant Project

It’s vital that detailed information about South Africa’s animals is collected and that reserves are maintained to a high standard. Your responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Feeding and preparing food for the animals
  • Tracking and monitoring wildlife
  • Vegetation and reserve management such as fence monitoring and bush clearing
  • Community awareness rising

The range of responsibilities that you hold means that you are able to make a genuine contribution to the reserve, making the project an extremely worthwhile and rewarding experience including both the wildlife and the culture of South Africa.

You will be living and working alongside full time local staff as well as other volunteers and project bases are located on the reserve with food and transportation included. You will also have the opportunity to travel around South Africa in your free time or at the end of the placement.
