Are you passionate about conservation and interested in getting some real-world experience that can bolster your resume? Contribute to conservation work through our wildlife conservation programs at Karongwe Private Game Reserve (KPGR) near Kruger National Park, South Africa. This is a Big 5 reserve where you’ll learn about wild animals in their natural environment, while living in a safe and protected camp. Join other wildlife enthusiasts, budding conservationists, and nature-lovers as you monitor large predators and mega-herbivores on the reserve.
You’ll join us for three to six months – living in the African bush, working with a research team, sharing meals around the fire, and gaining life-changing experience. Spend your days learning research techniques, gaining new skills and knowledge, and assisting with a variety of research projects. How many people do you know that can say they were involved in elephant, lion, cheetah or other African wildlife research? Now you can!
