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.

They also gave me their full support by providing 24/7 support from the team in the country and so I felt 100% safe


My experience was amazing and I would book with ACE again without a second thought.

Savannah'S STORY

I learnt so much being right in the middle of it all and experiencing it all first hand

Frances'S STORY

South Africa closed it’s doors due to covid and ACE very kindly rescued me with another assignment


The consultation and booking process was really personal and efficient and ACE made it easy for me to select the right projects.

Rachele'S STORY

Every day was somehow better than the day before. And it’s not just being with the rhinos but also the relationships you make with the team.


My trip was quite unique as I was already in South Africa but having ACE do my planning and itinerary to make sure everything went smoothly was the best!

Pieter'S STORY

When I found ACE they were extremely supportive. They gave me a lot of information on the projects so I could choose a project that fit my own interests.
