About the Program


The Wildlife Research and Conservation program gives wildlife enthusiasts, volunteers, students, scientists and interns of all ages and backgrounds an opportunity to get involved in conservation, research and wildlife management. Participants spend five days per week assisting in various capacities of research and wildlife conservation. Assistance is given through field work (data collection, behavior observations, trail camera deployment), entering and analyzing data, maintaining trail cameras and analyzing their photos. We leave evenings and weekends open which allows the chance to explore South Africa and take part in various cultural and tourist activities. Based in the beautiful coastal town of Hartenbos, South Africa our participants have a unique experience of working hands on in conservation on a free roaming wildlife reserve while living within walking distance to our pristine blue flag beaches.

​​Operating with the embodiment of Nkonzo Wildlife ideals and goals, the mantra of “Educate Act Empower” is nowhere more evident than in the Wildlife Research and Conservation Program. Participants are assisting in critical hands on research and conservation initiatives in the field that impact the wildlife and environment in both short and long term goals and solutions. These two areas, Educate and Act, work together to foster and facilitate the most important aspect of these ideals, to Empower. Through hands-on initiatives and education one leaves Nkonzo Wildlife with a better understanding of the problems plaguing African wildlife, the efforts being made to assuage these issues, and how they can continue to work with conservation and make a change for the better of wildlife, ecosystems, and our planet.


Field Work



When participating in the Wildlife Research and Conservation program volunteers, interns and students are involved in various research and conservation initiatives and projects within the game reserve. Projects and initiatives are peer-reviewed and foundational concepts to improve the welfare and understanding of wildlife in and outside protected areas. Primary work is dedicated to field observations and duties, data management and wildlife management assistance. All participants rotate through the various initiatives at Nkonzo Wildlife when participating in the Wildlife Research and Conservation Program, this includes our research.
 ​
Current work is being done on white rhino social behavior, hyaenid resource use in Fynbos, behavioral flexibility of bovids and wildlife fatality on roads. As a volunteer, intern, or student you will be working alongside the team to observe, collect data, develop projects, and data entry. Please keep in mind that time spent on the various projects will be determined by monthly quotas, weather, and animal cooperation. Training in “bush basics” such as survival, track and sign, reading animal behavior, and ethical approach methods will also be provided. The team takes great pride in only ethical operations and approaches and find it important to provide the information and understanding as to why we operate in the field the way we do.

Journée Typique

The following is a tentative schedule that we follow each week (Monday to Friday). We ask that all volunteers, interns, and students understand that our work is conducted on a free roaming reserve of 11,000ha. and that schedules may change based on animal locations, accessibility, weather, and other factors. Additionally, an average of two days per month are set aside for workshops and academic based coursework that is facilitated in town and not on the reserve.
