  • Get up close and personal with African lions, collecting and analysing data which is then used in the decision making process for the animal’s eventual release
  • Join our team on walks with the lions, experiencing their natural habitat and learning more about this incredible species, including watching them hunt
  • Spend your time with many other Big 5 animals, including interacting with African Elephants and spotting wild animals from the back of a game vehicle
  • Camp out under the stars, take bush walks and fall asleep to the sounds of animals roaming in the plains next to you
  • Take to the bush by horse-back or elephant-back with your fellow volunteers or go further afield and join one of the many excursions we offer, such as a weekend trip to Victoria Falls or rhino trekking in Matopas National Park

Work & Impacts

Lion rehabilitation

Lion Conservation and Research

Working in conjunction with a number of research partners, a vast amount of research into the African Lion is conducted at Antelope Park, with the aim of better understanding lion behavior and ecology. You will be involved in collecting and analysing data which is then used in the decision making process for the animal’s welfare and eventual release. The research studies being conducted at the time will vary with the needs of the project, however you are guaranteed to learn a lot about this vulnerable species and about conservation management plans.

Further to the vital research being undertaken, you will also get the opportunity to spend a lot of time getting very hands-on with the lions, including daily lion husbandry activities, such as feeding, cleaning their enclosures and a once in a life-time opportunity to walk with lions to familiarise them with their natural environment, in preparation for eventual release.

Reserve maintenance and management

Reserve Maintenance and Management

A significant part of volunteering on a conservation project involves getting hands-on in the wider initiatives which are on-going and focus on protecting the ecosystem where the wildlife call home. You will assist the wildlife management team in their day-to-day duties, which can involve boundary patrols, removing snares, checking fences for holes, repairing fences and roads and any other jobs which might occur at the time. You could also be asked to assist in areas such as erosion control, removal of alien plant species, cutting and collecting firewood, as well as refurbishments and building work that is needed. Although these activities certainly are hard work, they are extremely rewarding!

Conservation education

Conservation Education

Our volunteers often also get involved in conservation education as it is extremely important that the local people also understand the value of the wildlife in their surroundings and this can be one of the most effective forms of protecting a species. You will assist in an education centre where you will help children learn more about wildlife, the ecosystem and why it’s important to preserve their environment. Further to this, volunteers also venture into the rural communities surrounding Antelope Park and get involved in a variety of different initiatives for less fortunate children.

Things to do in your spare time

Antelope park activities

ANTELOPE PARK ACTIVITIES

Volunteers are more than welcome to leave Antelope Park at the weekends, but why would you when there is so much you can do right on your doorstep!? During your time off you can take a horse ride through the bush (or even on the back of an elephant!), head out on a sunset boat trip, relax by the pool, get active and arrange a volleyball tournament between volunteers, or even simply sit with a good book and enjoy the beautiful view, spotting herds of animals as they cross the open grasslands in front of you – Antelope Park is a wildlife haven and a perfect location to escape!

Additional excursions

Additional Excursions

Zimbabwe has endless scenic spots to see, as well as some iconic tourist locations, so at weekends why not try and fit in as many as possible! We will happily arrange excursions for you, so maybe you’d be interested in heading out to:

  • Hwange National Park - the largest national park in Zimbabwe and one of the best places to spot the Big 5!
  • Victoria Falls – One of the 7 Wonders of the World, where you can enjoy the falls, as well as having the option to get a bit more adventurous in either white water rafting or even a bungee jump!
  • The stunning Lake Kariba, where you will live on a house boat for 4 days spotting all sorts of wildlife, including crocodiles and hippos! 
  • Rhino Trekking in Matopos National Park - walk through the bush tracking these magnificent - yet endangered - animals

About Antelope Park

About antelope park

About the Destination

Antelope Park is a private game reserve in a stunning region of Zimbabwe, set in over 3,000 acres of open land and filled with some of Africa’s most magnificent wildlife species. From their resident lions and elephants, to the wild animals which roam as far as the eye can see, it is a truly special place and a once in a lifetime experience to visit.

Volunteers can expect to wake up to the sound of lions roaring in the distance and spend a considerable amount of their day interacting with them and playing a vital role in their conservation, but the reserve is also home to many other species of wildlife. During your free time, you will have the opportunity to explore the area, either on foot, horseback or even elephant-back and this is a great way to spot wildlife in the bush. The reserve even has a beautiful lake where many volunteers like to go canoeing or head along the river for a sunset boat trip.

As the reserve also caters to visiting guests, our volunteers have the freedom to enjoy the many facilities on offer, such as the swimming pool, canoes, sundowner deck and bar so you will be very comfortable during your time with us – you can even upgrade your accommodation to one of our private river tents or lodges for an extra fee. Of course, that’s not to say our main camp is lacking for anything – accommodation is a mixture of twin or quad thatched rooms and we often like to spend nights around the fire pit, so it’s a very social and relaxing place to be. It is also where your meals will be served each day unless you are taking a packed lunch with you for long lion walks in the bush!

Volunteering with animals at Antelope Park is an experience that will stay with you forever, knowing that you made a huge difference in the protection of the African Lion and at the same time lived in a unique location unlike anywhere else in the world.

Feedback from our volunteers

Haley, USA

To me, there is no argument that this program will prosper. The knowledge, experience, hard work, determination, and eagerness of the people that play the roles of keeping this place moving along everyday makes it inevitable that Antelope Park will be successful in releasing these lions back into their natural wild world.

This program is built well, and couldn’t be more perfect for those people searching for adventure and enlightenment. To really explain to someone how living in this place in Africa for the last 6 weeks has influenced my outlook on life would take me forever, all I can say is that I am a different person than the girl that arrived.

The things that this place has given me, the things that these people have given me, are so much more then I could have ever imagined.

Rebecka Rafael, Sweden

You will never forget the animals, the people, the love.

Arianna Petroncini, Italy

Doing this project you can actually feel the passion behind it. You become part of the people that support it and you have a role in the project. You give your best and they accept you the way you are.

Anne Maayaa Meijs, Holland

It is a wonderful project where you get the chance to work with people from all over the world and do what you really like.

Simone Diez, Germany

The way all the guides treat and love the animals is great. I got to know during that time that material things influence me way too much. If you have nice people around you at a wonderful place, with amazing animals you do not need this. And it´s great to see if you spend a holiday like this, that you have a good time and you can help in a very good way at the same time.
