What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

“Game Reserve Project … The Place of Gathering!’’

 

The Volunteer Project is designed to offer volunteers the opportunity to be involved in all conservation related projects on the reserve.

During your stay, you may see yourselves as "assistant conservation managers" as all of the work done by you will improve the quality of the reserve and the data collected by you will be utilized by Kwantu management in making important conservation decisions for the reserve. As a volunteer you therefore derive a good deal of satisfaction from your work, as your efforts directly contributes to improving the reserve.

While getting involved in every aspect of hands-on conservation management on the reserve, you will learn many conservation skills and have the experience of a lifetime. To top it all off, we have a brilliant community outreach programme. Our volunteers assist at a local rural farm school by providing food prepared by our chefs. Come and make a real difference and have fun doing so!

Volunteer programs begin on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. Volunteers can choose from 1 week to 24 weeks.
