Journey to South Africa and bring your leadership skills to the next level! This experience is ideal for those looking to explore a new culture, make new friends, and get hands-on experience in the field of wildlife conservation through volunteer work. Learn from local leaders and meet teens from across North America (and the world!) as you spend 2-3 weeks working, playing, and learning together.
Experience life on a game reserve and learn about wildlife conservation on the front lines. You may spot Africa’s “Big Five”, with a little luck — lions, leopards, elephants, Cape buffalo and rhino. By night, you’ll live at a rustic Home Base on the reserve; by day, shadow wildlife conservationists in the South African bush, go on game drives to observe animals and learn about sustainably preserving the region’s endangered species. Support local giraffe populations through identification projects and assist an anti-poaching unit with wildlife predator monitoring. Go on safari, camp, kayak, and take a whale watching excursion.
