About Program

Our volunteer program is designed in collaboration with the village and invites people to stay for a longer period of time, resulting in a more lasting, deep-going experience and mutual exchange for volunteers and the local community. Your stay will give you extensive insights into their history, current and past struggles through participating in activities including harvesting and preparing local foods, gatherine medicinal plants, ostrich eggshell bead making, traditional games and lores, and generally taking part in their daily lives.

A journey of multiple weeks at Nhoma has the potential for a life changing experience. The community is very welcoming, eager to exchange and learn from your knowledge as well

Program Highlights

  • Experience one of the truly last wild and untouched areas of Southern Africa!
  • Spend time among the indigenous community of the San people and learn from their deep connection and wisdom of nature.
  • Live and survive in the wild bush amongst free-roaming herds of elephants, endangered wild dog packs, many types of antelopes, leopards, hyenas and even lions.
  • Protect the indigenous knowledge that remains with the elders of the community and help to transfer and preserve it for the next generations.
  • Learn about Permaculture and how to minimize your own carbon footprint and grow your own vegetables.

Program Impact

Nhoma Safari Camp is deeply interwoven with the local Ju/'hoansi and the intention is to come up with new solutions based on traditional skills and share modern approaches whilst considering the social and cultural impact. We see volunteers part of the solution to create alternative ways of safeguarding and respecting the profound knowledge and connection to nature. At Nhoma, we believe that part of the solution lies in creating diverse work opportunities, based on traditional skills, but also offer jobs that enable the community to live partly from foraging and allow them to stay on their ancestral lands. Thereby, they are enabled to pass on traditional knowledge to the younger generations.

Through income generated, the village nearby is able to stay on their ancestral land and partly continue their traditional hunter-gatherer way of life. We see this collaboration as healthy symbiosis and are interested to deepen this relation for the mutual benefits. A journey of multiple weeks here is a potentially life changing experience, if you are looking for such an adventure. The community is very welcoming, and eager to exchange and learn from you as well.
