The Vet Eco Experience students have had an incredible first week, watching the fourth surgery on Hope, the Saving the Survivors project. They have captured and tested bontebok and assisted in the contraception of the white lioness, Queen, currently residing at Born Free. Hands on wildlife veterinary experiences don't get better than this!

We have welcomed our first veterinary students of 2015, this time all from Glasgow University. They had an incredible introduction to Wildlife Vet work by working on one of the Born Free lions along with our Head of Wildlife Johan Joubert. Jerry had a full health check and was then moved from the north camp to the south camp. to be introduced to two female lionesses recently released into Born Free. The introduction went well and the possible uniting of these 3 is looking very positive.

Our latest testimonial from an Australian ecologist who visited our volunteer programme to learn about practical conservation on a game reserve. Read what others have to say about their experience on our website link.
"In a short two weeks I have had the most informative and rewarding experience of my life. As an Australian ecologist I was excited to learn conservation practices implemented by the Shamwari team, from tracking, telemetry, participating in university studies and the incredible efforts of Born Free giving mistreated animals a second life. I am so excited to implement and pass on the knowledge I have gained. Thank you so very Shamwari - I will always talk about this incredible experience until I am old and grey!"
Feeback from the volunteers and groups visiting Shamwari Conservation Experience

A huge thank you to Myerscough College for donating some incredible workbooks and educational material to a local school in Paterson. An incredible sports day, played in a great atmosphere with everyone having a truly memorable day. Thanks also to Jon Watson for donating the 40+ football shirts which were given to this school today - an all round amazing day for the kids from the UK and from South Africa.

Our volunteers and school group were participating in Community projects yesterday. Volunteers were creating and painting a playground, while the school group was taking part in an environmental education seminar, helping to educate children on the valuable existence of key animals in the ecosystem which are persecuted due to superstition. A great day had by all here at Shamwari Conservation Experience.

Get behind the scenes and involved with the conservation efforts of the world renowned Shamwari Game Reserve.
Introduction
The Shamwari Conservation Experience is a once in a lifetime chance to get behind the scenes and involved with the conservation efforts of the world renowned Shamwari Game Reserve.

Shamwari is a fully operational 25 000 hectare Big five game reserve and our experiences are based around the requirements of the various short and long-term conservation projects and the need for assistance by the award-winning Shamwari Wildlife and Conservation Department.

Shamwari CNSV:XP boasts a multi-purpose student centre and other facilities geared to host several activities and get participants involved in various components of conservation. The experience is a true reflection of the day to day operational requirements needed to manage the game reserve and its resources.

Shamwari has hosted behind the scenes operations and experiences for the youth travel and adult sabbatical sectors for several years.  Be it a year out / gap year or a visit for a month or a few weeks, a life changing experience awaits.  We specialise in conservation, with a focus on ecology, wildlife and community work. Environmental education with local community and partaking in sporting interactions are an important part of our social responsibility drive to improve the lives of those living in and around the reserve.

The experience is as safe as it is exciting as we traverse in homologated game-viewing vehicles, guided by our qualified and experienced conservation staff. We operate in a malaria free zone and are one hour away from the closest major airport, medical facilities and other amenities in Port Elizabeth.
