…And you’re off again! This time, to our project base in the Greater Kruger Region of South Africa. Your time here will be spent collecting valuable data on Africa’s at-risk wildlife, including elephants, lions, rhinos and leopards. You’ll use detailed ID kits to identify individual animals and take a course in wildlife photography. You will also work with local youth in reading clubs, work in a reptile center, learn about the Shangaan language, go kloofing, learn about rhino poaching, conduct snare sweeps, and go star gazing.
Accommodation: Surrounded by wilderness in African Impact’s volunteer lodge
It’s less than a 2 hour flight from Johannesburg to your next destination, Livingstone in Zambia. Zambia is known as one of the safest countries to visit in the entire world, and one of the most beautiful. Aside from being home to the spectacular Victoria Falls, it is also a haven for wildlife. Your work here will include assisting the local community through various building projects, as well as helping clean up the local area by making eco-bricks; plastic bottles stuffed with soft plastic waste and used as building blocks. You will also assist in educational programs for children in the area. However, there will still be plenty of time for fun, including a walking safari in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park to track white rhinos, and a dip in devil’s pool at Victoria Falls.
Accommodation: At the lively Victoria Falls Backpackers Zambia hostel
Hop over the border into Zimbabwe and see the mighty Victoria Falls from the other side. After marveling at this gushing Natural Wonder of the World you will get a chance to wander around the lovely Victoria Falls town where you will get a glimpse into life in Zimbabwe. After a day spent taking in the sights and sounds of this part of the world, we will head back over the border and spend our last night enjoying the warmth and tranquility of Livingstone.
