Duration, Group Size and Prices

LEO Africa provides a free service to the Marataba Section of the Marakele National Park and for this reason also the financial support from the volunteers is required, as well as their help on the field and at base.

The prices paid from the volunteers are used for their food and accommodation and for expenses incurred in running the programme: vehicles, fuel, maintenance of both the vehicles and house, salaries, research equipment, camera traps, batteries, laptops and anything needed to run and improve the programme’s quality and level of performances. We are very conscius of our impact on the environment so we try our best to recycle and do not change items or buy new items until the ones we have are no longer usable.
