Conservation projects


Get involved in real conservation of endangered wildlife and get the ultimate African wildlife experience doing it. Wildlife volunteers work with trained wildlife monitors in the Manyoni Private Game Reserve tracking and monitoring animals and collecting important data as part of their wildlife conservation projects. Working in small teams of no more than five wildlife volunteers, they have one-on-one time with their monitors – gaining true conservation experience. The days are full, the work is important, and it provides volunteers with critical knowledge about African conservation. It’s not always pretty or easy, but it is real Africa, real conservation.


Zululand is recognised as one of the most biodiverse wildlands in Africa, with much of it declared a World Heritage Site. Conservation volunteers work across 5 unique parks – Manyoni Private Game Reserve is a 23 000 ha nature conservation area boasting the big 5, and many other mammals and an abundant birdlife. By volunteering on this reserve you have the opportunity to live and work in a beautiful part of Zululand. Wildlife Act focuses on endangered and priority species including the African Wild Dog, Cheetah, Rhino, Lion, Elephant, Leopard and Vulture

The data captured by the Wildlife act teams provide invaluable information toward the reserves conservation management. Long days are spent collecting data in the field from ID kits of big cats, camera trap images of endangered species, as well as monitoring the habits and movements of our elephant, Wild dogs, cheetah, lion and many more. Become a wildlife volunteer and help give back to the conservation community today.
