Living with Elephants and Rhinos

Program Overview

Living with Elephants and Rhinos

Situated an hour and a half from Harare, Zimbabwe this program is focused on the protection and care of seven black rhinos, three white rhino and three elephants. Experience a hands-on approach and learn the day-to-day life of working in wildlife conservation. This program makes a real difference towards conservation efforts in Zimbabwe.

Volunteers will also have an opportunity to get involved with community development and education projects, teaching local communities and children about the importance of preserving wildlife and the environment.
