The Sibuya Wilderness Experience offers volunteers, as part of a gap year, sabbatical or eco travelling, the unique and exciting opportunity to get behind the scenes and play an active role in supporting the Wildlife and Marine Conservation Projects of Sibuya Game Reserve.

By combining Wildlife and Marine Conservation in one program, we aim to underline the importance of uncovering the whole big picture of our Eco-System for a better understanding of nature and why it works the way it does. Education is our first priority in order to make a difference.

Tasks may vary from physical work to interesting and interactive lecture-based content. Our volunteer program will run from 1 to 4 weeks and we will work in small groups with a maximum number of 8 participants.

This is the perfect eco volunteer program for you if you are looking for a meaningful travel opportunity abroad that put your passion for nature, environment and wildlife to good use, trying to make a difference.
