À propos du programme

This project gives you a real and unfiltered look into South Africa’s iconic wildlife. However, unlike a traditional tourist safari, you will learn about conservation issues in the region and what is being done by local organisation like the South African National Parks authorities and international organisations to conserve South African species under threat as well as their habitat.

This wildlife conservation volunteering program is designed for teens between the ages of 15 and 17, to teach them what a career in conservation would really look like. You will learn how to identify South African animals and how tracking them and recording data on their location and behaviour assists with their conservation. You volunteering project also includes a visit to the Kruger National Park and adventure activities in the scenic Drakensberg mountains. Teens will be lead by experts in their field who have been chosen for their mix of relevant experience and ability to mentor and inspire young people.
