Lion and cheetah conservation in a game reserve in Northern South Africa.
Help conserve Lions, Cheetahs and other predators in their natural environment. You'll live on a Game Reserve, in a delightful bush camp where you get up close and personal with the animals. So if you want to make a difference to the indigenous wildlife of South Africa, this is the placement for you!
You'll have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to witness the magnificent African drama from the inside. You'll be involved with tracking, monitoring and researching Lion and the amazing Cheetah (did you know they run at 70 mph? That's fast!) You'll also be involved in night safaris, Reserve management and conservation efforts of a number of other, different species.
This project is based on a Game Reserve in the Limpopo province, in Northern South Africa. The reserve has 18,000 acres, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to see some or all of the great variety of species living on the Reserve:Giraffe, Lion, Cheetah, Eland, Buffalo, Leopard, Roan, Kudu, Hyena, Waterbuck, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Gemsbok, Sable, Impala, Duiker, Steenbok, Wild Dog, Aardwolf, Serval, Caracal, Black-backed Jackal, and Bat-eared Fox!
