Prepare to be seduced by the magic of the Namib Desert, on this fantastic volunteer opportunity in the beautiful Damaraland region. Here, you can help track the small population of desert-adapted elephants, as well as work with local farmers to help protect their water points from any elephant-induced damage. Camping wild, you’ll really get back to nature – there’s even a chance to learn some simple camp-craft and survival skills, if one of the family fancies themselves as a bit of a Bear Grylls!
Best for: Adults and children over 8 years old
Price: From £915 per adult and £815 per child for 2 weeks
