Maasai Mara Wildlife Research & Conservation Project, Kenya
The Maasai Mara is quite possibly Africa’s finest safari destination, most famous for its annual wildebeest migration - which has been called “the greatest wildlife show on earth”.
As a volunteer on the Maasai Mara Project you will help to preserve the balance between the local Maasai communities and the endangered species in the area. You will be involved in exciting conservation and wildlife research activities in a new and spectacular Maasai Mara conservancy area. Make an impact by promoting “Green Villages” in surrounding Maasai communities and help train local Maasai guides to promote sustainable tourism at the Koiyaki Guiding School.
