OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: LEO AFRICA, A NEW BEGINNING! 26 APRIL 2016
As some of you are aware, we are very happy to announce the relocation of the LEO Africa project. After 10 fantastic, successful years of professional work conducted on the current reserve, will be moving to a new location. We are relocating the project to an amazing Big 5 nature reserve that opens to a national park in the Waterberg biosphere! This is a fantastic opportunity to further/upgrade our work and to bring our knowledge and experience into a new conservation area. This amazing biosphere has many more animals roaming around, so the data collected and reports created can be utilized in a bigger spectrum.
We will be monitoring and conducting research mainly on the same key animals as well as other species that are not present on the current game reserve, such as bat eared foxes and a good number of brown hyenas. We will also be more focused on anti-poaching and reserve management activities, which means we will work even more closely with the reserve management.
We will miss all our animals, especially lions and rhinos, to whom we have dedicated almost 11 years of passionate, hard work. However, we feel really excited and lucky about this great opportunity! Imagine: our passion, care for fauna and flora, dedication for an even bigger and more important part of South Africa!
We invite everyone to come and join our new project in the Waterberg Biosphere (malaria free area) to make a valuable contribution towards the conservation of fauna and flora of South Africa, enjoy the stunning scenery and great wild animals. Come join us starting from the 26th of April 2016 for this great adventure!

Exclusive at LEO! Black Rhino Monitoring
LEO is proud to announce that as of 2013, we have introduced an exclusive
monitoring project to protect the reserve's black rhinos. You and a LEO guide
will spend an entire day in the bush, tracking and observing black rhinos. While
the focus of the project is black rhinos, you will also have the opportunity to
track white rhinos, lions, leopards and elephants. You'll also likely have the
opportunity to observe some of the reserve's many other species, all while
learning about them from your guide. Since you will be off-roading on remote
areas of the reserve, you can experience these animals in their natural
environment- very up-close and personal!
More information on our Black Rhino
The Volunteer Project
Your volunteer work takes you out into the wilderness as you track and record
the movements, behaviour and ecological impact of a lion pride. You will also
gather and analyze data about black and white rhino, leopard, hyena, elephant,
cheetah and other species of interest, and learn a lot about conservation and
wildlife management! LEO is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

FGASA Game Ranger Certification
As a long term volunteer with LEO, if you are keen to get a taste of what it
takes to be a field guide or ranger, we will help you with the theory aspect of
your FGASA (Field Guide Association of South Africa) training. Just think, in
eight weeks, you could be on your way to gaining a certified game ranger
qualification in South Africa!
We speak and understand Italian, French, Spanish, and Dutch
We are happy to assist you speaking Italian, French, Spanish, and Dutch, if you
don't feel very confident with your English. Our program does operate in English,
however there are often guides and guests here that speak other languages. Even
if you only speak a little English, the LEO team is very happy to help you.
