Our accommodation

The volunteers live with our student guides. Accommodation is simple and shared. We have transformed our conference room into a research centre with shared bed- and bathrooms. There is a kitchen, 2 dorm bedrooms, a lounging area, eating area, studying and lecture area, ablution and a braai area outside. Participants are expected to cook together (ingredients will be provided by Kololo).

Itinerary

What can you expect when participating in the program? The program revolves around undertaking research on Kololo from which tasks & lessons for future interventions on the reserve will arise. We will always work within the mission of the reserve as a whole but as the program evolves the different projects can move into different directions. Secondly, an important part is training the participants, providing them with better knowledge and understanding of the natural environment and everything that lives within it.
