Wildlife ACT actively advances wildlife conservation by conducting ongoing & essential monitoring projects on reserves in South Africa. Wildlife ACT performs these conservation services free-of-charge and completely relies on volunteer support to fund the work. We are supported by the WWF and have a very high percentage of returning volunteers - who range anywhere between 18 and 65+. All that is required is a positive attitude and a willingness to make a difference. Those interested are encouraged to visit the Wildlife ACT website to learn more.

the camp at uMkhuze is pretty rustic and it could use better kitchen, bathroom and bunk facilities, but it kind of adds to the african bush experience, so I don't know if I'd change it too much.

1. Find a way to let the volunteers have a little more responsibility and maybe a little more independence.
2. Spend a few dollars on screens for the windows, hooks and shelves and sheets for the beds. It would add a lot of comfort without a lot of cost. I would have happily paid more for these things and even offered to buy some supplies.

It could be a little bit cheaper for South Africans, but I have since seen that they do offer discounts to locals.
