LEO Africa is a wildlife monitoring, conservation and sustainable living volunteer programme based in the beautiful Marataba Section of the Marakele National Park. The focus of our monitoring are key species such as lions, black and white rhinos, elephants, leopard, hyena, buffalos and cheetahs. A typical day consist of 2 monitoring drives in which we collect data on wildlife and conduct conservation work for the park; when requested, we also assist the park management with special activities, such as game capture, animal darting, fire control and much more . Volunteers are the protagonist of our work, helping us to track the animals collecting and inserting data (with which we prepare reports for the park on animal behaviour, health, spatial movements etc.), some house duties and they'll have the possibility to take part to bush walks, sleep outs and much more! LEO is a truly, once in a lifetime African Experience!
