The Project

During this program, you will learn to navigate and track animals through the South African bush while undertaking vital conservation research into some of South Africa’s most iconic animal species. The project has a strong focus on safeguarding the well-being of the animals and their environment and employs non-invasive methods of data collection.
 
The structure of the project helps to maximise learning for volunteers, combining four days of field work every week with one day of theoretical learning by way of lectures or workshops.  The first two weeks focus on wildlife training where volunteers learn dangerous game approach methods, wildlife tracks and signs, useful botany, navigation and survival skills, animal behaviour and warning signs. You will spend the remainder of your time participating in scientific research in the field.  Yes, you will learn how to approach a lion and how to react should you come across one accidentally which happens often! Research activities have a strong conservation focus and aim to improve the welfare of wildlife in South Africa in an attempt to ensure the long-term sustainability of wildlife reserves.

The Location

The project is located in Mossel Bay, in the Garden Route area of Western Cape, South Africa. 

Mossel Bay is halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth boasting 60 kilometres of beautiful clean beaches. It is a popular tourist destination with the wider Garden route region being known for its natural diversity and mild climate.

The Surrounding Area

Volunteers have weekends free to explore the surrounds and attractions of this beautiful coastal region.

South Africa has lots of sunshine and Mossel Bay has many beautiful clean beaches at which to swim, surf or relax. It is considered one of the best whale and dolphin viewing locations along the southern coast. Why not go shark diving in a cage while you are here? Or maybe crocodile cage diving instead?

Embark on one of the local hiking trails and experience the Cape’s famous native fynbos (macchia) vegetation which is a form of flowering heathland believed to contain one of the highest diversities of plant species in the world.

If you are keen for adventure, Mossel Bay offers a wide range of activities to get your adrenaline pumping, including high-speed wave riding, shark cage diving, abseiling, quad biking, sand boarding and skydiving.

For a more relaxing experience, explore the rich history of the area at one of the regions museums or historical walks, or chill out on the beach

What to bring

There is no need to bring any special equipment.  Simply pack comfortable walking shoes and sensible field gear that will reduce wind chill and possible out of season rainfall conditions.

Please Note 

The second instalment of your project fees is due within 1 week after you paid the deposit on Volunteer World. This is a total of $495 AUD and comes off your balance. The balance is due 90 days prior to travel. For all further information about the fees, please scroll down to the section "Program Fees“.

Journée Typique

You will spend four days of the week in the field observing animals, learning skills and recording project data. As the animals roam freely in their natural environment, each day will be different, depending on what the animals choose to do each day! One day will be spent in town attending lectures or workshops. The knowledge and skills you will learn in the lectures will assist greatly with your activities in the field.
