Have you ever planned to spend your gap year doing volunteer work? What is your view regarding trips to Africa Safari? When you embark on a journey to this part of the world, you can have an enjoyable and gratifying gap year Africa by witnessing the famed wildlife of this continent from a close distance as well as bringing a transformation in the lives of several underprivileged people residing in community development sites. Hence, ranging from a photographic safari through one of the most reputable Big 5 conservation areas and the conservation of the Nile crocodile to a wilderness trail to a far-off area of the Gaza province in Mozambique, an exceedingly adventurous holiday beckons you.

It is absolutely feasible to blend an exciting vacation with some effective volunteer work. As a matter of fact, it is highly recommended to devote your precious time to an African community development project and work towards the sustainability and betterment of wildlife, decreasing natural resources, and inhabitants. Such an involvement during your gap year Africa will be very demanding both physically and mentally. However, in the end, you can draw extreme solace from the fact that you have done something noteworthy for the natural environment of Africa and its people.

There is no better means to utilize your career break than undertaking trips to Africa safari. And, if you’ve not visited the Kruger National Park (KNP), you’ve missed a chunk of the African wildlife. The KNP is amongst the biggest game reserves in the continent and is rated on a par with the best parks in the world. Spanning 2 million hectare area, the park boasts hundreds of varieties of mammals, reptiles, birds, fishes, amphibians and trees. There is also a sizeable population of the Big 5 that includes African elephant, Cape buffalo, lion, leopard, and rhinoceros. You will also come across here the highest population of the African Wild Dog in the Southern Africa.

By living in a camp in the Kruger National Park for several days, you can witness the wildlife in abundance and acquire maximum possible knowledge about nature. A special importance is also given to becoming proficient in the wildlife photography. The daily routine while camping consists of breakfast, morning activities, classes, lunch, nap, afternoon activities, and dinner. The classes are generally conducted on subjects such as astronomy, geology, climatology, ecology, botany, mammals, reptiles, birds, fishes, animal behavior, habitat management, wildlife management, and photography.
