Judy Daenens is the winner of April's Facebook Photo Competition. The theme was motion and this moment of red hartebeest head to head is an ideal winner. Congratulations Judy!

It's always an incredible experience to work with the wildlife team on a member of the big five. Our team got to work with a buffalo bull and cow. The bull needed to be relocated, whilst the cow had some abscesses which required treatment. A truly special morning for our team #teamshamwari

Happy #EarthDay. Our volunteers worked with kids in the community and picked up rubbish from the streets of Paterson and then got to enjoy a wonderful afternoon on the reserve

Getting to know the insects on a game reserve is a fundamental part of understanding the greater ecosystem that governs wildlife survival and growth. Our volunteers were involved in insect collection, identification and pinning for education and conservation purposes.

Zeus was rescued when his mum died just after giving birth to him. He's now a beautiful 1 yr old stallion enjoying life in a big pasture with a donkey and cow for company. Happy birthday Zeus!

Some of our volunteers were able to work with our wildlife team who were doing TB and pregnancy tests on some captured buffalo, in preparation for the game auction in May. A real privilege and learning opportunity for our students.

A sad goodbye to the school group from Netherhall over the weekend. Their fist trip to Shamwari as a Geography study tour. A jam packed programme allowed them to enjoy learning survival skills, elephant behaviour and management, community projects, Born Free Foundation and animal rehabilitation management, amongst many other things. What a week!

Sparsholt College had an amazing experience on their last day at Shamwari, working wtih Dr Joubert at the Born Free Foundation. One of their lions, Jerry, has a wound on his tail which needed treatment. So the team from Sparsholt were invited to observe and participate. What a treat for all involved! #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.
