Description

Are you passionate about supporting wildlife conservation efforts in Africa? Join International Volunteer HQ, the world’s most trusted and affordable volunteer abroad organization in Africa!

IVHQ offers a special Wildlife Conservation project in Africa, where volunteers have the opportunity to live and work within in the midst of the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

Located within a private game reserve, home to the African Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo), volunteers have the opportunity to get involved in conservation management practices, all of which are vital for the successful operation of the game reserve and the ecosystems of surrounding areas.

Volunteers work in conjunction with members of the game reserve team and anti-poaching unit, working on the game reserve and supplementing their work with local community development projects, including education, nutrition, and small-scale vegetable gardening. Living and working within the game reserve, volunteers stay in a purpose-built facility with an open-air entertainment area, complete with a swimming pool overlooking the reserve riverbed.
