Student Specialist Groups

Gondwana Game Reserve has developed a one of a kind conservation tourism experience for student groups who want to get more meaningfully involved in Africa on their safari. Participants will be involved in wildlife and field management, learn important bush skills and interpretation, and simply enjoy a behind the scenes view of a Big Five private game reserve. The research and findings from the program are fed back to Gondwana’s conservation department to assist in decision making enhancing the reserve management plan.

The itinerary will include plenty of game drives, bush walks, and down time in an utterly inspiring landscape. This is your chance to get involved with the important conservation work of a Big Five game reserve and not only enjoy but contribute.

Your base during the program will be in our eco-friendly, solar powered, tented camp remotely located in a protected Fynbos valley in the heart of the game reserve. The stylish camp facilities include 5 large, comfortable twin bedroom tents (converted to sleep 3 people) set on raised platforms each with a private bathroom and covered deck area. All meals are provided in the camp’s outdoor dining boma or in the main communal tent which includes kitchen, lounge, and dining areas, with a nearby pool and hammock relaxation area. The safari style cuisine is wholesome, homemade and hearty with BBQs and stews for dinner and wraps and salads for lunch. A private dedicated team of expert field guides, a chef and housekeeper look after the student group of 15 for an incredibly educational, exclusive and exciting experience.
