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 €2450 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

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.

Michelle'S STORY

ACE guided me every step of the way. It’s not common for an organisation that arranges international experiences to be so involved with the person.

Natasha'S STORY

Every step of the way ACE was there for me, from the first phone call to arriving back in the UK after I finished my experience.

Siske'S STORY

I spent 2.5 months across 4 different projects, each of which were so incredible and different from one another. It is insurmountable how much I had learnt about the culture, language, politics, myself and of course, wildlife.

Douglas'S STORY

I’ve been to a lot of countries and photographed a lot of creatures in the oceans and on the land.  But, I’ve never been “in the field” and experienced “hands on” action like this.

Rebecca'S STORY

This experience has made me realise I really want to get more into conservation work... I didn’t fully understand and realise there were so many more opportunities out there.

Sophia'S STORY

ACE made traveling during the covid pandemic completely stress-free and puts the volunteers above anything else.

Madeleine'S STORY

I also cannot recommend ACE as a company highly enough, they have helped me with so many situations when I was there the most recent time with all the hecticness of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stephanie'S STORY

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