Book a holiday that makes a difference!

In conjuction with the Wilderness Foundation, we urge you to join the Shamwari Group, recognised as a leading conservation and hospitality group in South Africa, in the fight to save the Rhino.

Rhino Facts:

  • South Africa is custodian to over 90% of the world’s rhino.
  • In 2010 alone, 333 rhino were killed in South Africa by poachers for their horn. In the first six-months of 2011, 200 rhinos were killed.
  • It has been proven that the horn has no medicinal value and is not a cure for cancer. However it is still sought after and mainly in the East.

The members of the Wilderness Network, which includes the Wilderness Foundation (Africa), Wilderness Foundation UK and WILD are taking urgent action to address steadily increasing levels of rhino poaching in South Africa.

Be a part of the change!

Volunteer Holiday in South Africa

Photobucket

Are you passionate about animal welfare and want the opportunity to make a difference? Often taking the time every week to volunteer to help our community isn’t feasible. Life can become crowded with responsibilities and obligations and it’s all to easy to forget the importance of looking after our planet.

 

Take a holiday this year to South Africa that makes a real difference. By choosing a ‘volunteering’ holiday you’ll get to explore a new culture, enjoy new culinary delights and experience another world and put your hand to a worthwhile cause. It’s a real luxury to be able to visit a new country and be the difference.

Here are our top 3 South Africa volunteer projects. All this information can be found at http://www.aviva-sa.com

Great White Shark Conservation

South Africa has the largest concentration of Great White Sharks in the world. Get up close and personal with these beautiful creatures in an exciting project in a passionate team of marine experts. South Africa is the breeding area for the endangered Southern Right Whale, and home to the threatened colonies of endangered African Penguins, as well as resident populations of dolphins, seals and thousands of seabirds.

Wild Coast Horses

This is an amazing opportunity for you to experience the wonderful world of horse rehabilitation on South Africa’s beautiful and rugged Wild Coast. As a volunteer you will work alongside the team and will be actively involved in the rehabilitation of abused horses. The centre runs on a well structured routine, so you could find yourself preparing feed, grooming, examining horses, helping with exercising and schooling of the horses, cleaning and replenishing water troughs and, of course, mucking out!

This stunning working holiday will give you access to a wide range of optional activities including the famous Cango Caves and Cango Wildlife Ranch, along with ostrich and wine farms in the Klein Karoo region, an adventure you will remember for all the right reasons!
