“I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up and was not happy!”

Welcome to the African bush!

Spend your holiday differently, be part of the efforts on the ground.

– the state or fact of existing, occurring, or being present.
– a person or thing that exists or is present in a place
– a group of people, especially soldiers or police, stationed in a particular place.
When there is movement, it is always harder to try and breach a fence or was into a reserve. Therefore we support, engage, add our knowledge and partner up with these amazing experiences and people, working together to help make this world a better place for the future.

Present. Safe. Protect.
Would you like to meet rhinos, elephants, lions and the feeble antelopes of Africa up, close and personal?
You will not only spend your time in the saddle, helping with fence patrols, snare patrols and presence on a reserve but also head into the famous Kruger National Park close by, for a couple of days, following the call of the wild?
Would you like to learn more about the efforts on the ground? We will show you what the situation is, how you can make a difference and why your participation and support by booking this program ensures its continuity.
Thank you to Tamlyn for making the Presence experience happening.

Educate. Act. Empower.
Would you like to be part of a wildlife research team, that monitors rhinos, surveys cape leopard locations to minimize human- wildlife conflict, protects scarce endangered species like the riverine rabbit, endemic to the Karoo and important to this desert environment, observes wildlife migration, assists in safe removals of fence lines to open wildlife corridors and helps rehabilitate the famous fynbos found in the cape area.
You will be actively a part of conservation of nature and its inhabitants.
Your presence will ensure movement between game drives; your help and paid for participation will keep this privately set up and funded project going.
Be the change you wish to see in this world.

Learn. Know. Enjoy.
Would you like to join a ranger for a day (or two), head into the bushveld on foot and with a vehicle and learn the rules of tracking and how to behave around the Big Five? Be present between the game drives and enjoy a night in a camp, surrounded by the wild sing song of Hyena, the roar of lions and the music of frogs!

Support. Help. Engage.
Would you like to meet the bloodhounds? The paws on the ground, protecting wildlife? Spend some time with them?  (Still work in progress, soon to be available!)

Have a look through all the programs and contact us with all your questions or for more information: bootsonthegroundnpc@gmail.com or on the contact form here.

Currently we do not take on volunteers, but we will be able to do so in the future.
