Volunteer Vacations in South Africa
Develop field skills, conservation techniques and part in the long term conservation of South African national parks for one year.
This program provides trainees with an intensive 2 week training course in Kruger National Park that covers a vast range of topics and is delivered by industry specialists. On completion of this course trainees gain high profile work experience working on conservation and environmental education initatives in one of South Africa's 20 National Parks. Having been placed with the People and Conservation (P & C) department you will work alongside park staff and focus on the development of environmental education and community development projects aimed at integrating the local communities into conservation efforts and development programs. Although no specific experience is necessary, each park has its individual requirements and GVI will match applicants to the appropriate parks. This program is ideal for any trainee seriously considering a career in conservation.
