Research Tented Camp

The conservation and research effort at Selati Game Reserve provides an amazing opportunity for you to live and volunteer on a beautiful South African game reserve. Volunteers are accommodated in a comfortable tented camp overlooking a waterhole. The camp also has a swimming pool and volleyball court. The sleeping arrangements consist of two people sharing a room. Women and men do not share rooms unless booked as a couple.

Selati Private Game Reserve

The Selati Game Reserve, a wide-reaching expanse of uninterrupted natural beauty, is home to an abundance of life. This nearly 28 000 hectare reserve set in the heart of Limpopo, Southern Africa, was established in 1993 with a vision to preserve and uplift the surrounding wildlife that plays a crucial role in the country’s heritage.

Wildlife likely to be encountered while staying on the Selati Game Reserve includes lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, white and black rhino, cheetah, spotted hyena, sable, eland, reedbuck, kudu, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, nyala, black-backed jackal, and several smaller antelope. Birdlife in the reserve is prolific (current recorded sightings at over 310 different species) and the region has endemic cycads (Encephalartos dyerianus) along with an impressive range of beautiful riverine and savannah trees.

The Reserve is typical of the savannah woodland biome with six different veld types offering a great diversity of habitats that support over 50 species of medium to large sized mammals. While working on the reserve volunteers have the chance to not only see lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, white and black rhino, spotted and brown hyaena, cheetah, giraffe, eland, zebra, black backed and side striped jackal, wildebeest etc. but also work with some of the more endangered species!
