Once you’ve arrived at your base camp you’ll get a chance to meet fellow volunteers and GVI staff from around the globe before learning about African wildlife conservation and heading out into the bush. Over the next few days, you will learn about animal identification and behaviour, as well as how to track animals and navigate your way in the bush. Most importantly, you will learn about how the African ecosystems work and receive real life insight into subjects like geology, local history, soils, plant life and the climate. If learning new bush skills, making new life-long friends and making yourself better equipped to tackle your education is not enough, this trip will give you the amazing opportunity of experiencing an stunning bush sleepover, where you will be able to truly appreciate the stars in the southern skies while the sounds of the night carry you away to dreamland. The weekend will be packed with trips, including a visit to the world famous Kruger National Park, where you may spot the sought after big 5 (rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard and elephant).
