Volunteers Spending The Day On The Back Of An African Elephant.




This is one of our Volunteers going on the Elephant Back Safaris. "A experience never to be forgotten , walking through the bush on structured game paths. With the vibration of the rumbling Elephants, softly communicating with each other".

Life In The African Bush.




Typical day at work.. Chemically imobilising Wildlife to re-locate them to new Reserves. The animals being darted here is the Sable Antelope (Hippotragus Niger). 



This is what the Sable bull looks like(under sedation). This bull has been immobilised to collect data for the owners use for ex. horn length, horn tip-tip length, base circumference,age etc. Blood samples can be taken for future DNA sampling on offspring.

Up Close With A Hyena.

There is nothing like nature and getting up close and personal even though humans are never meant to intervene. But the opportunities are given to us to be educated in the aspect of wildlife especially hunting. Live life to the fullest!
