Wildlife and Conservation Volunteering
Kwantu Private Game Reserve

Kwantu Game Reserve is situated in the Eastern Cape (85km out of Port Elizabeth towards Grahamstown) and spans over 6000 hectares.

Our product offering and facilities include the following:

• The famed African Big 5 out in the wild
• Various accommodation types
• Sporting facilities such as a cricket field, swimming pools, and tennis courts
• An entertainment room with items such as a pool table, table tennis, darts and big screen TV
• And many more

A game reserve is a very dynamic environment and we are sure that you will come to appreciate this fact during your volunteer programme with us.

The emphasis at Kwantu is placed on wildlife and conservation and we have highlighted a few pointers below to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one.

The wildlife and conservation programme is designed for volunteers interested in having a truly African experience while making a difference to the local wildlife and environment. Activities for this programme vary on a day-to-day basis and are dependent on weather and other factors (so please expect the itinerary to change from time to time!).

There is an itinerary of all the activities which are scheduled for each week. The itinerary is designed in such a way that volunteers are divided into groups of up to 10 volunteers per group, depending on the number of volunteers. Each group will have an outdoor volunteer coordinator as a leader and mentor. The groups will be engaged in different daily activities, but will all do the same type and number of activities by the end of the week. In some cases, all the groups might do the same activity at the same time depending on the type of activity e.g. game capturing.
