Wildlife Research Internship
Practical training in terrestrial research
Join our research team in their effort to understand and conserve some of Africa’s most vulnerable wildlife and ecosystems. Gain first hand knowledge and experience while learning dangerous game approach methods, how to read animal behaviour, bush survival skills, and theoretical training on venomous snakes. Work together with researchers on various species of wildlife, as they conduct observational and behavioural studies on hippo, buffalo, zebra, white rhino, lion, elephant and more. Do all of this while staying, at a beautiful rustic bush camp, on a free roaming big-5 reserve. Live the life of researchers in the field as you gain the experience needed for future careers in the wildlife conservation and research industries.
