- Program Description:
Nkonzo Bush Academy is a popular and highly regarded destination for research, conservation and ecotourism. Founded on the dream of being different, the name Nkonzo comes from Lingala, a language in central Africa, meaning possibility or new beginnings.
At Nkonzo we believe in the bigger picture; creating experiences that not only focus on the ethical wellbeing of all animals, both human and not, but the future of the environment by making a positive impact on the conservation industry and the lives of African wildlife.
We're working for a better future by showing the world what wildlife is supposed to look like and how we can coexist together.
Our ethos can be detailed as many things but it all integrates into a singular idea, that of respect. Respect is the key on which Nkonzo’s founding is idealized. The pride of Nkonzo is the respect of the environment, which encompasses all things within it, and that of the future, including man’s coexistence and place in it.
ResponsibilitiesVolunteers will take part in various activities, such as: monitoring of various species within the only free roaming big five reserve in the fynbos biome, assist in animal releases and darts when necessary, reserve maintenance (alien plant removal, road maintenance, etc.)
