You will be staying at 5 star hotel (5 star dorm style rooms) in South Africa.

Situated in a Lovely setting this is an amazing Opportunity to work with the BIG 5 Animals of South Africa and experience Game Ranger life style. Volunteers have various duties such as conservation, working with Lion Cubs and Cheetahs, Game park drives, eradication of alien plants, caring for sick animals such as lion cubs, assisting in elephant training, assisting in game captures, feeding of animals, game counting of the animals, interacting with guests if you want too, accompanying the rangers on game drives and much, much more.
