The weather temperature has been perfect for all of #teamshamwari to crack on with the tortoise mark and recapture project. Fascinating to work with these incredible animals up close

How would you like to be part of a team of volunteers helping out with behind the scenes reserve operations in South Africa. You get to do a multitude of tasks, not least working with our Vet and wildlife team. To end this week our team were involved with the relocation of a male and female sable antelope. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity and our gap year students and volunteers are loving the start of 2016!

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.
