Okavango Wilderness Project
Discover the stunning Okavango Delta, home to many of Africa’s most charismatic species.
A vast maze of waterways, bushlands, dry pans and Kalahari desert vegetation, Botswana’s Okavango Delta is one of Africa’s last true wildernesses. Home to the largest population of elephants on Earth, this awe-inspiring landscape is also one of the last strongholds of the endangered African wild dog.
As a volunteer on our Okavango Wilderness Project, you’ll join an intrepid team of conservationists in these spectacular surroundings. You’ll assist directly in monitoring priority species according to guidelines set out by the Botswana government.
With 900,000 acres (360,000ha) to explore, you’ll also find yourself covering some serious distances in the wild and picking up a variety of bushcraft skills.
