Explore Experiences by Animal

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

Megan'S STORY

The time in the clinic and out in the bush was very strenuous, eye opening, thrilling and captivating.

Laura'S STORY

If you are considering volunteering at Care for Wild, do it. Yes, it is hard work. Yes, you will be tired. Yes, you will smell of dung, teff and milk. Yes, you will get up at early hours. But trust me when I say it is all so worth it.

Micaela'S STORY

If there’s one thing that I hope someone gets out of this, is that if you are considering going, but you are nervous, DO IT ANYWAY! This was the best experience of my life and so eye opening! I would go again in a heartbeat. 

Amanda'S STORY

There is not a project with ACE that I would not recommend. There is something for everyone and they will make sure that you have the most amazing time!

Emma'S STORY

The projects do require a lot of hard work, but you do gain a lot of new skills and experiences. You also meet a lot of like-minded people and make good friends (so travelling alone is fine). 

Darrius'S STORY

I highly recommend anyone who wants to learn about wildlife conservation while getting hands on experience to go through the ACE team.

Ramez'S STORY

This project is a conservation project in the Okavango area and it’s been absolutely amazing. You feel like you really contribute. To nature. To the ecological environment.

Kaden'S STORY

Although I was only able to spend a short time at Phinda, I am so happy that I got to be a part of the incredible efforts and learn so much about Africa and its wildlife.

Gabby'S STORY

We learn so much about ourselves and about the world when we travel. ACE ensured that my daughter’s first experience of travelling abroad on her own was amazing!! I have no doubt that she will treasure the memories forever and the experience will give her the confidence to try new experiences in the future.
