LEO Africa

LEO Africa, Wildlife Monitoring, Conservation and Sustainable Living Volunteer Program - Limpopo Province, South Africa

Limpopo Eco Operations (LEO Africa) is a Big 5 wildlife monitoring, conservation and sustainable living volunteer program in South Africa, established in 2005. Our mission is to provide data on key animal species (lions, leopards, elephants, cheetahs, buffalo, brown and spotted hyena, white rhino) to Reserve Management as well as help maintaining the pristine beauty of the reserve where the project operates, through conservation work. The data collected is used to evaluate population numbers and to help taking informed decisions on future conservation practices by the reserve management.

At LEO Africa we have a strong focus on sustainable living and we promote green energy, recycling and the reuse of materials. We believe that the future of wildlife and of our planet is reliant on everyone doing their part as well as maintaining and increasing protected natural areas.

Volunteers are the center of our work, helping us in the field, at base, as well as supporting the project financially, making our vital work possible. The LEO Africa volunteer project provides a free service to the reserve where we operate; the contribution of our volunteer project provides valuable information about  the key species to reserve management. By joining this project, you will learn new, valuable skills and make amazing memories whilst living a truly African experience!
