This South Africa Wildlife Conservation Short-Term Internship from Ayyıldız Tim, is not your conventional internship experience. You will live and work with international participants and GVI staff in the heart of the savannah landscape. Wake to the sounds of endemic South Africa birdlife and spend your mornings tracking the movements of animals in the reserve.


Spend your lunch hours recording and analysing valuable data and the rest of the afternoon conducting further wildlife research or reserve maintenance work, on this South Africa Wildlife Conservation Short-Term Internship from Ayyıldız Tim. In the evenings learn more about local species and ecosystems or work on your own research project. 


  • Earn skills, experience, and qualifications that will help move you closer to your dream job in conservation.
  • Earn an ILM Endorsed Leadership Certificate as well as an EFR qualification, and complete a Biological Survey Techniques program.
  • Go on a wildlife safari adventure in a private South African nature reserve.
  • Listen to the quiet hush of the wild open spaces, waking each morning to a chorus of savannah birds and drifting off to the nighttime hum of endemic frogs and crickets.
  • Learn to identify predators, like lions, cheetahs, and leopards, as well as megaherbivores like elephants and rhinos.
  • Live and work alongside Field Guide Association of South Africa, FGASA, qualified guides, growing personally and professionally by learning from their experiences.
  • Sleep under the star-filled Southern night sky, its beauty enhanced by the lack of light pollution, and wake to golden African dawn.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The main project our team works on is recording the number and species of animals in the reserve to assist management with maintaining a healthy balance of predators and prey. We also assist Panthera by providing data on lions and leopards and Elephants Alive with preventing damage caused by elephants to fragile local plants. In addition, we also monitor cheetah feeding behaviour and their success in the reserve environment in partnership with Endangered Wildlife Trust.
