At the reserve where your volunteer program will take place, you’ll encounter a diverse range of landscapes in 10,000 acres of conservancy that includes msasa woodlands, savannah grassland, rocky outcrops, riverine forest and thorny scrub. You will stay in comfortable twin or dormitory accommodation in a two storey thatched house next to a lake.There are two indoor bathrooms with shower and flush toilets and two outdoor solar showers for those hot days. Your accommodation is staffed with a cook and housekeeping staff and laundry will also be done for you. The people of the local community are friendly and children love the volunteer interaction at their school.
Living in close proximity with four of Africa’s Big 5 animals on this privately owned conservancy you will witness amazing animal relationships and get a unique behind the scenes look at life on an African game reserve. On the reserve you can climb Castle Kopje or visit Markwe Caves to see bush paintings and ancient tribal artifacts. Sundowners from the lookout point are a great way to start off your evenings. Then enjoy chatting around a fire, do some star-gazing and end off the day with a hearty meal and a good night’s rest, lulled to sleep by the sounds of nocturnal Africa.
