Living with Big Cats (Wild Edition)

Program Overview

Living with Big Cats (Wild Edition)

An ideal conservation program for anyone who is looking for an authentic African wildlife experience. Live on a game reserve that boasts thousands of wild animals, including all of the Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo.

Volunteers work closely with certified game rangers to collect data and observations regarding animals; including the Big 5, on the 25,000ha reserve. Volunteers will go on daily game drives and bush walks to track animals in order to gather crucial data that is shared with researchers and students.
