Indulge your passion for some of Africa’s most fascinating species. Have you always dreamed of working closely with African elephants? Or coming face to face with prides of lion in their natural habitat? How about getting hands on in the fight to save the rhino from the poacher’s snare?

Our conservation experiences give you the chance to join genuine conservation projects in helping to look after some of the most iconic species on earth. As well as spending time in close proximity to these unforgettable animals, you’ll also have the chance to work shoulder to shoulder with some of the most knowledgeable and experienced conservation professionals in southern Africa today.

How much does it cost?

Our experiences start at £1760 for two weeks, including transfers, meals and accommodation. But it really all depends on which project (or projects) you visit and how long you stay. For detailed pricing info, explore our experiences by animal below.

Travellers' stories

Stephanie'S STORY

I have to say that my trip to Care for Wild was just a completely next level experience.

Sabrina'S STORY

South Africa is always going to be a huge part of my life and every single penny I spent on these volunteering experiences has not been wasted.

Magdalena'S STORY

I invite you to get motivated, not to stay behind a screen watching or sharing videos of how they kill animals, see it with your own eyes and act against this that happens every day, before it is too late .

Nina'S STORY

When I say “Once in a lifetime experience”, that barely scratches the surface of my amazing Care for Wild Volunteer experience.

Maartje'S STORY

The first time you feed the baby rhino’s is something you will never ever forget.
It makes you so emotional and realize this is what is going on in the world and all other things seem so unimportant

Traveller Stories Sarah Smallwood

Sarah'S STORY

You get the opportunity to be involved in everything going on at Care for Wild. There are lots of presentations and everyone is really generous with their knowledge and experience. Petronel is such an inspiring lady but very approachable with an amazingly kind outlook on the world. I can’t recommend a trip to Care for Wild enough.

Keavy'S STORY

I would say it was a once in a lifetime adventure but that wouldn't be true, I am returning next summer to do it all again!
