As a volunteer you get involved with all sorts of behind the scenes working aspects of the game reserve. One integral part is the protection of the animals and therefore you get to meet the Anti-Poaching team and work alongside them when the opportunity arises on night patrols

The team of volunteers worked hard with Born Free Foundation to build an enrichment platform for some lions. It's not finished yet but it's a great start #teamshamwari

Working at the rehab centre can be a challenge when the residents are stopping your progress. The team were cleaning out enclosures and helping with some general maintenance having done a tour of the centre first.

Working with the wildlife team on treatment and management of wildlife is often a highlight for our volunteers. Today our team assisted our Wildlife Director with treatment of an abscess on one of our buffalo cows in the north of the reserve. Working with wildlife is always an exciting experience!

It's taken our team nearly two weeks to get to this point of rehabilitating the quarry, but the job is finally done. Seeding, raking, brush packing - check! Great work all, thanks for all the blood, sweat and tears, it was worth it #teamshamwari

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.
