About LEO Africa

Limpopo Eco Operations (LEO Africa), operates in the spectacular Marataba Section of the Marakele National Park in the Limpopo Province, South Africa since April 2016. The park offers stunning views of the Waterberg Mountains, a great wildlife and flora diversity.

The LEO Africa Volunteer Project originally began in 2005 as a research programme to assist a private reserve in the Kruger Park area up to March 2016. The aim was to support the management to re-establish their land as a prime wilderness area and monitor re-introduced wild animals, in the specific lions, black and white rhinos.

Ecotourism in South Africa is on a steady rise and many landowners are rehabilitating farmland into wildlife and nature reserves. However, LEO Africa isn't based on ecotourism; the project has a positive impact in the management of ecosystems and wildlife monitoring, which requires an enormous amount of knowledge, passion, dedication and painstaking research.

Our experienced field guides and rangers have years of field experience. The work we do links ecology with the practical aspects of running of a nature reserve, providing a rewarding and educational wildlife volunteer experience.
