South Africa is home to a wide range of fauna and flora, many of which are endangered. Our international conservation team in Limpopo works towards conserving and collecting vital data on the species found on Karongwe Private Game Reserve.
The program focuses on creating an increased awareness around anti-rhino poaching but participants will get involved with a wide range of routine wildlife conservation activities.
Depending on the needs of our partners, our projects involve various wildlife species, including leopards, lions, cheetahs, elephants, buffalos and rhinos. All our research is conducted in conjunction with our partners, including the Endangered Wildlife Trust and SAN Parks.

Taking part in this programme has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life, I had a fantastic experience and have found a career that I am determined to follow in. Every experience that I had was incredible.
One of the best parts about being a volunteer for GVI is that I immediately felt a part of the team amongst both the staff and the other volunteers – we all worked together and helped each other out. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and keen to share their ideas and experiences which meant I came away with a new mind set.
