À propos du programme

South Africa is a dream location for those who love nature. Unfortunately, the likes of poaching and the destruction of natural habitats are causing a worrying decline in this incredible biodiversity. Poaching, ivory hunting and other illegal activities are all rife across the continent. In light of these problems, this project makes a significant contribution to the preservation of these species, by providing the animals with a protected, controlled habitat to live freely. The reserve aims to keep the environment as similar to the wild as possible for the animals. Habitats are based on their natural environment and animals are not touched or handled, unless it's required because they require medical treatment.

The volunteer work site is a 10,000-acre nature reserve which has been privately owned for several years. The land, set inside a valley with access to two rivers, wooded hills and savannah's boasts five distinct habitats. These habitats are home to loads of animals, including the famous 'Big Five'. It’s important to note though, that these animals roam freely around the reserve, so it is necessary that you stay behind the fence surrounding your accommodation to avoid any surprises!

The Eastern Cape region is also a popular choice for our volunteers, as it offers loads of fun activities, such as horse riding, skydiving and even deep sea diving. On Wednesday evenings, our volunteers normally take a trip to the local pub. If the weather holds out, you can also go camping; our volunteers love spending the night around the campfire looking up at the stars!

Logement

You'll be living in the middle of the nature reserve in a fully furnished house, alongside the other volunteers. There are shared rooms and a shared bathroom. It also has a common room with a pool table, a TV, a dining room and a well-equipped kitchen with a fridge, oven, microwave and crockery. For valuables, such as passports and cash, a safe is available. The house has a garden where volunteers relax after work together - there's even a pool and a BBQ area to make the most of!

Attention: It is important to note that the house is located in the middle of the reserve, in which the animals move freely. It is, therefore, necessary for your own safety that you stay within the fenced property area to make sure there's no surprises!

Aliments & Boissons

All the ingredients are provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner, which the volunteers can use to put together whatever they want. This means you'll be able to try whatever you want and to make sure you'll be fully fueled for the day ahead.

Informations sur l'arrivée

Before you even depart, our team in Munich will take you through every step of the process, from answering your questions about the program, through to advising you where to go for your visa. We're here to help and to ensure that you feel totally comfortable before departing.

For your volunteer work at the wildlife reserve, you will land in Port Elizabeth, which is about 150km away. The on-site project team will gladly arrange your airport pick-up (not included in the initial fees, but we can easily facilitate this if you wish). If so, you will be picked up from the airport and taken to your accommodation (it's about a 2-hour trip). As soon as you arrive, you will meet the program manager Helena, the project coordinator Francis and the other participants you'll share this journey with.

After getting to know your new surroundings, you'll have your introduction as a group with the other volunteers. This covers the project, tasks rules of conduct and house rules. Afterwards, you will be taken for a drive through the grounds of the reserve to see some of the incredible sights you're going to become familiar with.

Your wildlife project is located near the coastal city of Port Elizabeth. This is located on the southern tip of South Africa and is known for its beautiful environment, especially it's beaches! Together with other surrounding regions, the bay on the Indian Ocean is also referred to as "Nelson Mandela Bay". Port Elizabeth is also considered a surfers paradise, so it pays to spend a few days there before or after your placement if you're a water lover!

2022 at Wildlife Reserve Support

When I volunteered at the wildlife reserve in South Africa, I was greeted by our guide Jaco and six other volunteers. With various tools, we cleared and cleaned paths or removed old fences. Thick wooden posts often still had old rusty barbed wire on them. We also removed "alien plants" - these are ...

I can only recommend the project in the wildlife reserve! The journey to the project is very well organised, as you are picked up from Port Elizabeth with other new volunteers, among others, and after 2 hours of travelling to the reserve you already see so many beautiful landscapes. From the first ...
