Dates for 2018 are finally here!

We finally have the 2018 start dates for the Ulwazi volunteering programme. Just as last year, the Ulwazi programme will give you the opportunity to be a part of the conservation management at Thanda Safari whilst also contributing to wildlife and conservation research. New for this year is that we are teaming up with Africa Nature Training, a field guide training provider, which will give you the additional opportunity to learn tracks, bird- and plant identification. Combined with the conservation management you will gain a lot of skills that you can take with you from the volunteering programme.

Dates for 2018:

Two-week programme
4 – 18 June
16 – 30 July
1 – 15 October
12 – 26 November

Four-week programme
4 June – 2 July
16 July – 13 August
1 October – 29 October
12 November – 10 December

Below are some pictures from our last volunteers, Nadine, Luisa and Lennon from Germany. They were involved with cheetah tracking, lion and elephant data collection and they helped out with both soil erosion and bush clearing. Beyond that we also had lots of fun and we can’t wait to get new volunteers around!
