Enjoy meeting other international volunteers and sharing in the experience of a lifetime!
Duties of volunteers vary on a day to day basis and are dependent on factors such as the weather. The work is mostly outdoors and will sometimes be in unpleasant conditions, so volunteers will need to be willing to lend a hand with all sorts of tasks. Goals of this Project: Work to save the lives of vulnerable animals Improve the future prospects of endangered animals in South Africa Research the animals on the reserve to learn more about their lives and ultimately, how to protect them Create an environment that enables different cultures to work together with the goal of saving animal lives.
