He who a great good thing would know,
Must to the silent places go. Jeffery Farnol
With so much beauty and adventure hidden within the heart of Africa, only there for those brave enough to take it.
What is unique about the South Africa Conservation trip?
This program is designed for anyone that is interested in wildlife conservation. As well as zookeepers, biologists, animal science majors, conservationists, adventure seekers, travellers or anyone with a love and passion for wildlife and nature.
If you are looking to do something exiting, then this is just the trip for you.
This trip is a mixture of adventure, education and helping the fight to save our wildlife.
Our volunteer program runs from a Sunday to a Sunday
(8 days/7 nights).
During this time you will be staying in a beautiful chalet on the Blyde river, near the town of Hoedspruit.
Your role will be to assist with snare sweeps; helping in the workshop with making D2TW products; joining in with a community outreach project and if luck is on your side -assisting a wildlife veterinarian in removing a snare from an injured animal.
In your off time hiking, swimming and cliff jumping - in the crystal clear waters, of the Drakensberg is a must.
Join in to see first hand what Down to the wire is about and broaden your knowledge on conservation.
Doesn’t matter who or what you are, together we can make a difference.
