African Conservation Experience support a wide range of conservation projects, giving you the opportunity to work with wildlife in Africa.
There are a range of different wildlife conservation projects where volunteers can get involved, getting first hand experience while they work with animals.
Volunteering at these wildlife management and conservation projects involves working alongside game rangers, field researchers and a wildlife capture team in southern Africa.
Our Game Ranger Courses offer a thorough introduction to the wildlife of southern Africa while the Wildlife Tracking Courses provide in depth training in a challenging environment.

Having a long neck is great for feeding where no others can but makes drinking slightly tricky!
They are the only pigs able to live in areas without water for several months of the year. By tolerating a higher than normal body temperature, the warthog is able to conserve moisture inside its body that might otherwise be used for cooling. When water is available warthogs drink regularly and enjoy wallowing in muddy places.
Elephants don't drink with their trunks, but use them as "tools" to drink with. This is accomplished by filling the trunk with water and then using it as a hose to pour it into the elephant's mouth.
