African Wildlife & Bush Experience

The perfect starter-package into the natural wonders of the African Bush. Situated within the Greater Kruger National Park in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, you will be immersed in ‘Big 5’ country, an untamed wilderness of approximately 3.5million hectares where the animals roam freely as nature intended!


This project is suitable for persons over the age of 16, who have an interest in the field of conservation, wildlife or just a sense of adventure. Volunteers need to be in good health with a moderate level of fitness. It is a great opportunity for those wishing to explore the wonders of the African Bush, not only to experience all the mother nature has to offer, but who also want to enhance their experience with knowledge provided by qualified Nature Guides.


The African Wildlife and Bush Experience is open all year round.


Arrivals and departures to the project are flexible. Contact us with your preferred dates and we will do our best to accommodate them (availability pending).
