Volunteer Reviews

Myriam Deleuze

A fabulous experience in the middle of nature. The staff are passionate people who are knowledgeable about wildlife and photography and taught us a lot. They are also engaged in many various projects for example in the community and schools.

Your Project, Your Purpose

A combination of photography theory, practical experience and assignments under our Photography Manager, Hanna Wigart, will allow you to grow as a photographer and leave Zimbabwe with an amazing portfolio as well as having contributed to important causes.

Living on a private wildlife reserve and safari park with other like-minded people and resident animals allows for photography opportunities wherever you turn your camera. You will regularly participate in photographing on-site volunteers working with lions and game park management  and their daily lives caring for the captive resident animals. Every photograph you take may be used for marketing and educational purposes, making your contribution to this project, essential for its success. However, don’t be afraid to put down your camera and get your hands dirty by assisting the team!

 Get the opportunity to assist with photography assignments from other NGOs and organizations that work with the local community and wildlife. Great pictures capturing the invaluable work of the NGOs is crucial for spreading awareness and increasing funding to further support their projects. Most organisations do not have the equipment, time or expertise in photography/videography for this to be possible and therefore you can make a significant difference by donating your time to these worthy causes.


But that’s not all!

When you are not in the field assisting with on-site projects or on assignments for local NGOs, you will have the opportunity to improve your skills and take incredible photographs of local sites and wildlife. The Photography Manager will take you through theoretical and practical classes tailored to your level, throughout your entire stay.

Get your camera ready. Charge your batteries. Focus! Because when it comes to wildlife preservation, it takes just one photograph to speak a thousand words and make a difference.

After all, it’s your eye, your project, your story.
