Kariba Conservation - Wildlife/Human Conflict

If you are looking to gain your first experience of wildlife conservation, or are passionate about conservation awareness and protection, the experience in Kariba, Zimbabwe is for you. Volunteers assist conservation professionals in preserving wildlife and nature while engaging with the local community.

Volunteers will be involved with anti-poaching and security measures, education in the local community to reduce wildlife-human conflict, undertaking maintenance of habitats and waterholes, assisting vets in monitoring animal behaviour and working with children on wildlife awareness. The experience will be hands on, teaching you both professional and personal skills that you may never have known you have. This is also a fantastic way to boost your CV or university applications, giving you an advantage over others.

Volunteers generally split the project time, spending 3 days on wildlife & environment conservation and 2 days on community service.

Accommodation for this programme is on the outskirts of Kariba town, a perfect location to be one with nature. You can choose to stay either in the hostel or in a tented camp. The area is surrounded by shrub and is right on the shores of Lake Kariba. As it is situated in the middle of the game corridor there is absolutely no need for a safari truck to view wildlife up-close. You will most likely find game literally on your doorstep, unlike anywhere else in the world.
