Oceans Campus home

As a volunteer, you will learn all the aspects of operating a wildlife game reserve; make memories that will last you a lifetime and of equal importance, you will be contributing to returning African land back to its original state – a savannah teaming with wildlife.

Volunteers will be involved in creating community awareness, expanding the existing reserve and working on the growing rehabilitation program.  Here you will experience what it’s like to work on and run a 'Big Five' game reserve set against the majestic Langeberg Mountain Range on the world famous Garden Route on the South Eastern coast of South Africa.
