FOR WORK EXPERIENCE AND EDUCATION IN NATURE AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION
The Thula Thula volunteer programme truly is a must for everyone, from university students, corporate groups and even those with a lifelong dream to work in the wild African bush and make a difference to conservation.
The Thula Thula Volunteers programme offers both local and international volunteers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get involved in wildlife conservation, reserve management and environmental studies. Thula Thula welcomes you to join a team of highly skilled and knowledgeable rangers, reserve managers, veterinarians and general nature lovers, in our efforts to continually develop a link between people and the wilderness which we cherish so much.
RECONNECT WITH NATURE
Volunteers will experience 1 to 6 weeks of living in the African wilderness, sharing experiences with others, growing their skills and making a difference. Programmes will vary slightly throughout the year, as the challenges involved in wildlife conservation are constantly shifting and certain issues may receive more focus than others. Thula Thula offers a well-rounded program aimed at covering both the needs of the reserve and surrounding community, as well as providing a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience for the volunteers.
During their stay with us, volunteers will see themselves as “Assistant Conservation Managers”, as all the work done and data collected by them will be utilized by Thula Thula for conservation on the reserve.
Our volunteers also get the opportunity to explore South Africa’s other game reserves as Thula Thula is close to Hluhluwe-Umfolozi and St Lucia heritage site, (at an additional cost).
