South Africa boasts some of the world’s best adventures and most notable wildlife – lions.
Join a lion research and conservation project and take part in a number of activities that work towards the re-introduction of lions to their natural habitat.
In your free time, enjoy the wealth of adventures South Africa offers, including bungee jumping, canyoning, hiking, quadbiking and more!
A lot of your time will be spent out in the reserve, where you will be busy tracking big cats and collecting data from the research vehicles. You may also have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of cheetahs by foot if it is safe to do so. When you are not on a game drive you will be back at camp recording the data you have collected, some of which you may use in a presentation you will give to volunteers and staff on a research topic of your interest. Your home for the duration of the project will be our GVI camp, in the heart of the reserve. You will be sleeping in a dormitory-style room, and will share facilities such as bathroom, kitchen and living areas with your fellow volunteers. Camp duties are allocated on a rotational basis, so you should come prepared and complete with a teamwork spirit.
