South Africa


This scientific field project focuses on gathering information on the movement patterns, habitat use and foraging behaviour of the Giraffe in the remote area of the Tugela River Valley, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Participants will operate from a field camp, on foot, gathering data and samples in the field and collating findings in our field laboratory. Information gathered during the project will be used to aid in the conservation of Giraffe in the immediate area and will be shared with the broader scientific community.

The Africa Wild Trails Cape Giraffe Conservation Field Study will be led by local ecologist, Dr Peter Calverly, Robyn Hickman of Exeter University and Africa specialist venture leader Angus Wingfield of Africa Wild Trails.
