Mokolodi International Volunteer Programme
The Mokolodi International Volunteer Programme (IVP) aims at providing individuals from all over the world with the opportunity to have a hands-on experience with the wildlife, environment and people of Botswana.
The Volunteer programme provides the setting to allow people from different walks of life to interact and learn from each other while at the same time allowing them to learn about conservation, wildlife and environmental education and to contribute their knowledge and skills to a worthy cause. By allowing volunteers to work behind the scenes, they are afforded the opportunity of experiencing how a well-established game reserve functions and what is involved in maintaining a project of this nature.
As a volunteer, you will be working alongside our volunteer coordinator, other volunteers and also the Reserve's permanent staff in different departments and areas of the Reserve. Each 5-week programme is divided up into various rotations of approximately one week each so as to ensure that each volunteer has the opportunity to experience different parts of the Reserve and so that they get exposed to a diverse number of activities within Mokolodi. There are different focus areas in the Reserve that require attention at different times of the year and as such rotations will vary between groups depending on season and the current management activities.
The IVP is a paying volunteer programme where income generated assists the Reserve in covering the costs of having the volunteers and also contributes to the conservation management and operational costs of the Reserve.
