South Africa endangered wildlife conservation

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

The nature of this trip is all about making a difference, contributing to an important wildlife conservation project.

Your hard work enables the project to actively contribute to the protection of the wildlife in the area. By assisting with the day to day conservation tasks, volunteers allow the local team to put additional time and effort into creating partnerships throughout the reserve. This also allows the local team to focus on their three point plan - endangered and priority species monitoring, anti-poaching measures and technology, and community education and empowerment. Ultimately, these factors all contribute to protecting and preserving wildlife in South Africa.

Private game reserves now collectively represent more land under conservation than national parks. These reserves often donít benefit from national government funding and are reliant on self funded conservation research projects such as this to create essential data from which to develop best practice policies for private reserve managers.

Volunteers are also involved in other essential hands on activities that are critical to conserving the environment on the reserve.

Community

Social responsibility
Before volunteers depart we provide them with a detailed information pack on the area they will be visiting. We try to educate and encourage our volunteers to understand and respect the local cultures and customs and get involved with local communities.

Economic responsibility
For over 10 years we have been providing volunteers to help at charitable projects around the world. A UK charity has now been launched to build on this success by providing financial assistance to overseas causes as well. The organisations we work with are often struggling to fund the work they are doing so every penny raised makes a real difference.

The majority of the fee that volunteers pay goes directly to the reserve. The reserve provides employment for many local South African staff. Accommodation is on site and food and produce are locally sourced. While volunteers are in-country, we encourage them to buy locally and support local businesses.
