This pioneering nature conservation project is based in the heart of tribal Zululand (Northern KwaZulu Natal, East Coast of South Africa) bordering the 750 000ha Greater iSiMangaliso Wetland Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site for its natural beauty and biodiversity, and Sodwana Bay, a world renowned tropical scuba diving destination. Our base camp is walking distance from Lake Sibaya that is South Africa's largest fresh water lake, home to hippos, crocodiles, small antelope species and a vast amount of bird species.
We open our doors to conservation students and young, vibrant travelers and nature lovers who wish to not only go on epic adventures, but to also make a valuable contribution to a noble cause. Volunteers will have the opportunity to: monitor and research one of the few remaining wild hippo populations surviving outside of protected areas; add their discoveries to the ever growing species list; educate the local community about the value of natural resources conservation; work with specialists in their field; and last but not least to kick back and relax on some of the world's most beautiful beaches, coastal dune forests and witness an African lakeside sunset. If you are looking to get away from the fast passed monotony of the concrete jungle, and to become one with the rhythm of the African wilderness then this is the place for you.
