Where will I be living?
Volunteers stay onsite in fully furnished and fully-equipped 2 bed apartments with en suite bathrooms and air-conditioning. There are also two swimming pools and a bar to enjoy and all meals are prepared for volunteers.
The lodge itself is situated on a beautiful 260 hectare bushveld farm less than an hour’s drive away from Johannesburg and Pretoria. As well as the lions, a variety of game and bird life call the reserve home.
Who will I be working with on my project?
Volunteers on the programme work alongside local people and other volunteers.
What’s the local area like?
Johannesburg is easily accessible from the reserve. These are just a few ways that volunteers can get the most out of Jo’burg:
Top of Africa: Climb to the top of Africa’s tallest building for a great a panoramic view of the city.
Mandela Family Museum: Nelson Mandela's first home is now a museum and is the perfect place to learn about apartheid.
Cloud 9 Spa: Go on, pamper yourself!
Lesedi Cultural Village: Make a trip to the authentic Zulu, Sotho, Pedi, Xhosa and Ndebele villages and discover the traditional customs, food, dances and music of the people who live there.
Gold mines: All that glitters is gold in these mines on the outskirts of Johannesburg.
