Program Overview

Setting Description:
This project takes volunteers to the northwest regions of the Namib desert. This harsh tribal wilderness area runs parallel to the Skeleton Coast National Park, and is home to a small population of desert - adapted elephants. The area is a vast, scarcely populated communal trust land. It is a transitional zone between the high rainfall area in the east, and the Skeleton coast in the west, and is therefore regarded as un-farmable on a commercial basis. It has become a natural, unfenced refuge for desert adapted animals, and the area in general is still regarded as one of the last true wilderness areas left on earth.
US$1300-00 for each 2 week period.
