WHY CHOOSE KWANTU?



Kwantu runs as a game reserve, which means we respect the habitat and animals that inhabit the land, first and foremost…and above all else.

This respect comes across in all that we do, from how we treat the land; utilizing ethical conservational practices, how we live, and also how we care for our people that give so much of their time to ensure the well-being of our animals.

Kwantu is all about learning from the land, building our knowledge and developing skills that you can take with you wherever you head to next, whether it is a career in conservation, adventure tourism, or veterinary care.

Working as ‘assistant conservation managers’ you will contribute towards the overall quality of the reserve and data that you collect will actually be utilized by management to help make important conservation decisions that impact the environment. So you can be assured that you are making a difference in the lives of our precious animals.

A day at Kwantu equals a lifetime of memories…

Wake with the dawn as the kingfisher plunges into a reflecting pool and emerges with a meal. Stretch like the cheetah waking in the savannah bushveld as you start your day living, learning and doing your part in ensuring the smooth running of the reserve.

Spend your time working alongside Africa’s big 5 and marvel at the wonders that are living, breathing and thriving in the bushveld and endless skies beyond.

Evenings are spent reflecting on the lessons learnt from actually taking part in the care and rehabilitation of the land, and the animals that call Kwantu their home.

Experience a real life game reserve environment as you learn about the indigenous fauna and flora of the Eastern Cape. Volunteering at Kwantu is a once in a lifetime opportunity that few will ever experience but that will live on in your memory for years to come.


What to expect?

Set in the tranquility of the African bush, you’ll be staying within the 6000 hectares of a Big 5 game reserve, where you’ll carry out valuable volunteer work to help protect the land and wildlife. Located on South Africa’s famous Garden Route, you’ll get to enjoy the rich biodiversity of your surroundings, as well as providing important support to the reserve’s team of conservation experts.

Be part of a team, and make lifelong friends. Staying at one of the two backpacker lodges on site, enjoy the accommodation’s facilities in your downtime, and at weekends will be provided with transfers and accommodation in surrounding towns to offer you the opportunity to explore African life outside of the reserve.

Working as ‘assistant conservation managers’ you will contribute towards the overall quality of the reserve and data that you collect will actually be utilized by management to help make important conservation decisions that impact the environment. So you can be assured that you are making a difference in the lives of our precious animals.
