Summary

Set in the sandy plains of Namibia, this award-winning project aims to preserve the last two populations of African desert elephants. When you are not carrying out activities to help these magnificent creatures, there is plenty of time to socialise with the locals, an exciting chance to learn more about their fascinating culture and way of life. Sleeping under a tarpaulin (and even up a tree at base camp!) means you will be able to view the herd of nearby elephants before falling asleep under the stars. What could be more beautiful than witnessing the sun setting across the breathtakingly beautiful Namibian plains, where elephants roam freely?

Whilst on this project you will be contributing to the conservation of these great giants by undertaking activities such as tracking and monitoring the local herds, constructing wells and other features to provide water, and educating the locals on the importance of protecting elephants. You'll gain valuable knowledge about the behaviour and movement of these wild herds, which can then be used to help increase understanding amongst the local population. As awareness increases, it's hoped that elephant numbers will continue to rise. They say that 'an elephant never forgets' - this project is a sure way to make incredible memories that you will never forget.

What We Love

  • Discover Your Inner Builder: Get your hands dirty as you carry out important construction work, such as building a wall to protect water sources to help improve the locals’ quality of life

  • Be an Elephant Tracker: Learn more about Africa’s wildlife as you travel across the desert, tracking and recording the movements of local herds. See what other animals you can discover in this intoxicating wilderness.

  • Back to School: Travel to different schools to educate the children on the importance of the project and the conservation of elephants in general. Help to inspire a new generation to want to protect this breath-taking environment.
