Interactive game ranching Working holidays at Zingela are open to volunteers who would like to learn about and experience wildlife, game ranching and farming in South Africa. Volunteers work with the staff team and take their instructions from our foreman.
They participate in the daily chores and learn how we care for our animals (Hi-value game, etc.), grow fruit and vegetables, maintain the lodge gardens, perform weekly checks of the fencing and watering holes for the game animals and fix fences and watering pipes.
They also learn about managing a game farm, maintaining the balance between flora and fauna, the programs to improve the carrying capacity of the land and the business of purchasing and selling game animals.
Daily excursions to other places of interest can be arranged, but has to be booked prior to arrival, and at additional cost.
