Zingela Research Camp offers local and international people the ultimate volunteering/gap year opportunity.  We strive to give volunteers an awesome experience while collecting valuable data from the game reserve and to be part of a research program that will move towards sustainable development.  Volunteers will be gaining valuable knowledge about the African Bush and be part of a research program to maintain a healthy population and control of  Zingela’s eco system.

Volunteers will also be involved in community development.  They will visit nearby schools and communities as well as the pre-school that Zingela Nature Reserve build for the community, to make a difference in the community and their lives.
