Join projects working to protect the African wilderness and work within a team of volunteers to make a positive impact in the conservation of Africa’s endangered species. Discover life as a game ranger and even train for your FGASA Level 1 Field Guide qualification where you’ll learn even more about becoming a skilled and ethical natural guide to Africa’s unique landscapes. Whether you choose to help track wild populations or work on a reserve and sanctuary. There’ll be plenty of opportunity to live in and help protect and preserve Africa’s beautiful wildlife and natural habitats!

Our most popular wildlife projects in Africa include:

  • South Africa Wildlife Conservation Volunteer - Provide a helping hand on an amazing private game reserve in South Africa, tending to the Big 5 and even helping care for rare Bengal Tigers!
  • Namibia Wildlife Conservation & Sanctuary - Deep in the Namibian bush you have the rare opportunity to work with some of Africa’s most extraordinary creatures - hand-raise baboons, care for injured animals, and track and monitor big cats.
  • Uganda Mountain Gorilla Adventure - See one of the world’s most endangered animals, the Mountain Gorilla, in their natural habitat. A perfect way to conclude your adventure in the pristine Ugandan wilderness!

A wonderful experience


I felt welcomed and safe throughout my entire trip. Walking in the mountains and seeing the gorillas was great. To ensure that the gorillas remained safe from human infection, good physical fitness was required. The staff took great care not to disturb the gorillas in their natural habitat. The guides were good, and altogether I had a wonderful experience.

How can this program be improved?

I would have benefited from improving my fitness before leaving on my trip, in order to get the most out of the experience.
