About Program

Our 2-Week African Elephant 'BIG FOOT' and 4-week Africa’s “Dwindling Giants” Elephant Management Awareness Eco-Learning Volunteer Programs are informative, fun yet formalized Elephant focused educational programs which are founded on outcome-based learning objectives with innovative approaches to deciphering observable elephant behavior and applying sound operational animal management care, husbandry and welfare strategies, procedures and protocols.

Each program is structured and organized with developmental interactive learning from day to day. These interactive programs are managed in such a manner where all participants take away invaluable knowledge and experience which can be measured, quantified and qualified through the acquisition of new and innovative knowledge and acquired interpretive skills. This program gives an insight into the Life of an African Elephant.

We offer scheduled departure dates for all our programs throughout 2016 and 2017
