Kariega’s Conservation Volunteer Programme is the ultimate Big 5 experience where volunteers from across the world get hands-on experience in conservation management on the reserve. During your stay with them you will act as “Assistant Conservation Managers” and all the work done and data collected by you will be utilized by Kariega for conservation on the reserve.
Their volunteers also get the opportunity to explore South Africa’s amazing coastline as Kariega is a mere 16 km from the sea. This coastline has particularly rich marine fauna and flora as well as endless sand dunes and beautiful beaches. To top it all off, they have a brilliant community outreach programme. Their volunteers assist at a local rural farm school by teaching children basic subjects like English.
Volunteers are be provided with stimulating practical experience in the following four areas: research, conservation management, education and community development.
