Keep a watch on the rhinos

If you are contemplating getting involved in animal conservation work on a Big 5 Game Reserve, why not join us at Kariega Game Reserve as a conservation volunteer? Make a real difference, grow your skills in conservation and have the most wonderful experience of a lifetime!
Kariega is an extraordinary and exciting conservation project, at the forefront of numerous species reintroductions and conservation drives. If you want more than just a safari … come and get your hands dirty and learn more about conservation management on a malaria-free Big 5 game reserve.

Kariega’s Conservation Volunteer Programme is the ultimate Big 5 wildlife experience, where volunteers from across the world get the opportunity to enjoy hands-on involvement in conservation management on the reserve. During your stay with us, you may see yourselves as “Assistant Conservation Managers,” as all the work done and data collected by you will be utilized by Kariega for conservation purposes. A dedicated coordinator will ensure that you have a wonderful learning experience, make a real contribution to the reserve and leave with a stronger understanding of conservation issues. Rhino

The estimated number of rhino poached during 2012 in South Africa is 633!  This crisis is the most significant conservation issue that South Africa has faced.  Kariega conservation volunteers help monitor rhinos on the reserve on a regular basis.

You will also get the chance to explore South Africa’s amazing coastline as Kariega is just 16 km from the sea… the beautiful Indian Ocean is right on your doorstep! This coastline has particularly rich marine fauna and flora as well as endless sand dunes and the most beautiful beaches. To top it all off, we have a brilliant community outreach programme. Our volunteers assist at a local rural farm school by teaching children basic subjects like English. Come and make a real difference and have fun doing so!

Volunteers will be provided with stimulating practical experience in the following four areas: research, conservation management, education and community development.
