About

This project works to conserve the desert elephant population and to ensure the safety and security of local communities living alongside the herds. Join the staff in the true Namibian wilderness and see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.

As a volunteer, you will work towards building vital protection walls around water sources and building alternative water points for the elephants and the areas newly released black rhinos.
Volunteers take part in exciting patrols and track the various resident herds in the area, recording movement patterns and information such as new births, deaths and other notable events such as mating. You will also participate in educating the local people on the importance of elephant conservation and work towards eliminating human-elephant conflict.
