Information about volunteering as a small or large group. We organise volunteering projects for families, university and college student groups and corporate groups.
Tailored group placements focussing on specific conservation projects or courses, bespoke for each group.
At Phinda volunteers head out at night to track the elusive leopard. Once located and darted with a sedative, the volunteers help secure a radio collar and collect data on their condition
In the wild, these sleek swimmers can reach speeds of over 18 miles (30 kilometers) an hour.
On the Game Ranger Course you never know what surprises you mind find in the bush!
Life in the field working alongside an experienced wildlife vet is both unpredictable and challenging
At Phinda volunteers assist with hormonal contraception methods on lions to help manage populations and maintain the balance
