Volunteers may also possibly get involved with the darting and fitting of radio tracking collars to lions and leopards to further research work.

Volunteers can also apply their new knowledge and enjoy the cooler air during satellite camps to some of the breathtaking mountain habitats participating in conservation and biodiversity studies. Volunteers will build upon their training, gaining knowledge and developing practical field skills throughout their time on the program ensuring a well rounded, education and rewarding wildlife volunteering experience deep in the African bush.
