Namib and Kalahari Desert, Namibia
This is a unique opportunity for volunteers to visit the Namib Desert research sites in Southern and North-East Namibia: Neuras Wildlife Estate, Kanaan Desert Retreat and Mangetti. At these sites volunteers will monitor big cats, wild dogs, hyena and elephants, contributing to invaluable research that will help to mitigate human-wildlife conflict in Africa. Many of the big cats at the Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary have been rescued, rehabilitated and released into these sites and given a second chance at living in the wild. All volunteers spend time at the Wildlife Sanctuary where they will work with the many orphaned or injured animals that have arrived seeking help and rehabilitation.
