Explore the mysteries of African wildlife and ecology through our online courses, which offer a friendly and supportive learning environment regardless of your age. Your course fees will also contribute to development initiatives, making your learning experience more meaningful and fulfilling for outdoor enthusiasts.
Volunteering is a wonderful way to give back to your community, develop new skills, and make meaningful connections with others.

The story behind our Development Centers

Our two development centers are located within the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere reserve and fall within the Greater Kruger National Park area of South Africa. These centers are where our selected learners gather to acquire all the valuable theoretical knowledge and skill needed to attain various qualifications and soft skills. Both our centers are still in need of much needed renovations and equipment. Your donation will go a long way to help create a study friendly environment that will maximize learning.

Volunteer for Conservation Projects

Consider volunteering to join our conservation and wildlife management projects called Save Manyeleti Game Reserve, and contribute towards our development efforts. Manyeleti Game Reserve is our community game reserve, situated in the Greater Kruger National Park, and home to iconic African animals such as lions, leopards, rhinoceroses, African elephants, Cape buffalo, and many more.

Unfortunately, Manyeleti Game Reserve is facing a funding crisis, making it difficult to conserve its fauna and flora and build and maintain basic infrastructure and roads. As a result, Manyeleti receives few visitors due to the lack of basic amenities like road signs, picnic spots, toilets, water, and bird hides.

By participating in our conservation project, you can help save Manyeleti and also uplift our selected rural youth. You will have the opportunity to work among the most iconic African safari animals like African elephants, lions, giraffe, plains zebra, and many others. Additionally, you will get to meet our selected youths, observe their progress, and see firsthand the positive impact of your involvement on their lives.
