Join an award winning elephant conservation team to help protect and research the desert elephants.
The project helps to reduce conflict between elephants and farmers by building protective structures around water sources and creating safe drinking points for elephants. The project team conducts vital research by tracking and recording data on the local elephant population. The aim is to develop a greater understanding of the elephant herds as well as creating a positive relationship between community and desert elephants, enabling them to live together in harmony.
The volunteer role rotates weekly; the first role is based at a community building project and the second involves researching the elephant population out in the desert. Camp out under the stars and experience life in the beautiful Namibian desert!
