Description

Journey into wildest Africa and volunteer to conserve cheetahs deep in the South African bush, viewing these incredible predators in their natural habitat.

You will be heading out into a game reserve and be assisting in the research of the world’s fastest land mammal. Not only will you come face to face with cheetahs but you will also have the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of this magnificent creature and of Africa's big cat population, making a real contribution to ensuring their long-term survival.

How this program makes a difference:

It is important to develop an accurate picture of the social structure, genetics and spatial movement of South Africa's cheetahs as high-quality data is vital in developing effective conservation efforts.
