Volunteering Project (Monday to Friday):

Starting at 8am most days, volunteers will spend their time conserving, researching and protecting the ‘Big Five' and other flora and fauna. You'll have the chance to assist with many on-going short and long term projects including game monitoring, C.A.R.E. community projects, general maintenance within Shamwari (including fence, wire and bush clearing) and conservation projects at the Born Free Big Cats Sanctuary. Volunteers may also have the opportunity to attend informative presentations from the experts on topics such as anti-poaching, game ranging and wildlife tracking.

During the week, there are always board games, drinks and other activities going on at Sandlflats pub in the local town of Paterson. During weekends you can treat yourself to a Storms River bungee jump or go surfing at Jeffreys Bay.
