What's the project about?

Two of our favourite volunteer projects in Africa – combined! This experience gives volunteers the opportunity to contribute to wildlife conservation within a private conservancy and experience the challenges of community life in Victoria Falls. Conservation volunteers get the thrill of seeing Africa’s most iconic animals close at hand, while supporting a world-renowned conservation organisation. In Victoria Falls, the Greenline Africa Trust are dedicated to long term community action, supporting vulnerable people and their families.

How will I be contributing?

This volunteer project combines rhino and elephant conservation work with community projects in rural areas near the world-famous Victoria Falls. Volunteers have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience and learn about wild animals in a safe and natural environment and undertake practical conservation activities. You will also contribute to community projects focusing on education, poverty alleviation and skills training. This could include school feeding programmes, agriculture projects, water aid and early childhood education.

What makes this project ethical?

The human-wildlife conflict is possibly the greatest issue currently faced by conservationists. Through these two volunteer projects, you will participate in the protection of threatened wildlife and also work towards an Africa where communities and animals peacefully co-exist. Poverty alleviation and education programmes are critical for long term conservation, ensuring that the responsibility for Africa’s wildlife is placed in the hands of its communities.
