Nature and Coastal Wilderness Conservation

The Sibuya Wilderness Experience offers volunteers the unique and exciting opportunity to get hands-on experience in the conservation efforts of Sibuya Game Reserve. Volunteers will take part in short and long-term projects which are intended to create sustainability for generations to come.

This is the perfect Eco Volunteer Program for you, if you are looking for a meaningful travel opportunity abroad that put your passion for nature, environment and wildlife to good use.

Program Highlights

Please download our E-Brochure for more details (e.g. schedule example, team, what to pack etc.)   
    • Wildlife Tracking & Monitoring: Spend your time immersed in Nature, on the trails of Africa’s Big Five. Regular monitoring and observation enable us to identify individuals, compile information about the family/ herd structure and determine feeding habits.
    • Rhino-Watch/ Anti-Poaching Support:Play an active role in the protection of our Rhino by performing Anti-Poaching night-patrols and learn more about their importance and protocol through night drives and sleep-outs on the Reserve that assist in Sibuya’s Anti-Poaching Unit efforts.
    • Alien Plant Control & Botanical Surveys:Alien plants were introduced to the land by the farmers of old for different reasons and uses. Today these invasive plants need to be removed to increase the natural biodiversity and to decrease fire risk.
    • Marine Explorations, Research & Surveys: Regular trips to the beach for exploration and learning about the coastal Eco-system and how it works will open eyes to the diversity of life that is so close, yet often unnoticed.
    • Community Engagement:Our responsibility includes environmental education of the Community as to the role and benefit of conserving biodiversity and further stresses the importance of conserving our natural resources. Regular trips are made into the local Community to raise awareness and assist in various Community Projects.
