    I have been placed at Masebe Nature Reserve. My time there will be spent collecting data necessary for research on biodiversity in the area. Masebe Nature Reserve is one of the flagship initiatives established by the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere. The concept of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserves is to create areas that seek to "reconcile conservation of biological and cultural diversity and economic and social development through partnerships between people and nature." …

    In January 2012 I travelled with International Student Volunteer to South Africa to be involved in a 2 week conservation volunteer project followed by a 2 week adventure tour around South Africa. I’ve always been very passionate about animals and working with them (as I am a vet student) and ISV the perfect opportunity for this. For our project we were working and living in Lapalala Game Reserve, an environment …

    The ISV trip to South Africa in Feb of 2012 was one of the most fantastic trips I have ever been on. Each day brought a host of new exciting experiences and the work on the first two weeks of the tour was both extremely rewarding and interesting. My group and I (about 15 all up, comprised of people 18-22 years of age) conducted habitat assessments at Lapalala nature reserve in …

    January in Swaziland is the middle of the wet season, this meant the bushland was lush and green. Lovely yes, but it did make for some tricky working conditions. With grass one metre tall and an inability to see more than two metres in front of you it's not an easy feat to set up a 70m x70m workspace. But with hats on sticks, climbing trees and lots of jumping …

    While in Swaziland we spent two weeks camping in Mlawula Nature Reserve. Camping smack bang in the middle of a 16,500 hectare nature reserve, is a pretty awesome experience, there's giraffe, nyalla, baboon, impala, zebra, wilder beast and the like just roaming around, everywhere.  This is where we spent the following two weeks, waking up every morning to a gorgeous sunrise and the sounds of the Swazi bush. Everything is …

    For my volunteer project I chose to be involved in the Swaziland Savannah Conservation Project, this meant spending the first two weeks of my trip in the Kingdom of Swaziland. My first night was spent at Lidwala lodge in Ezulwini Valley, coming in late and jet lagged we didn't have a chance...or the energy to do much but sleep.  Our first encounter with the wildlife came the next morning when we were …
