Shamwari Conservation Experience

Shamwari Game Reserve offers the ultimate placement for conservation volunteers in a malaria-free environment. Shamwari means ‘my friend’ and this reserve is the southernmost premier big 5 game reserve in South Africa, boasting a huge variety of game over a vast 24,000 hectares. 

At Shamwari game reserve we can promise you the experience of a lifetime! You will assist the award-winning conservation team. If exposure to the African wildlife is your dream – perhaps even working with lions – then gap year voluntary work at the Shamwari Game Reserve will exceed your wildest expectations

“I would definitely recommend going on a Worldwide Experience placement! My time at Shamwari Game Reserve has to be one of the best experiences of my life. I met some great friends and was able to get the hands on experience of conservation that I really wanted. Not only the conservation, but the community projects that you are able to be involved with makes you feel like you have really made a difference. I wish I could have stayed longer. It’s worth every penny. I will definitely going back. Also Worldwide Experience are a great team!! “
