February 2009 Hein and Kim Schoeman saw
an opportunity to share their passion
for conservation with others who shared
a similar calling.
wanted to make a difference in their local
community by teaching about agriculture,
wildlife, sustainability and returning
the land to its natural, original state.
wanted to make a difference. That difference
is the Umkhondo Project.
Umkhondo Project offers an absolutely
incomparable volunteer experience in practical
knowledge and diverse hands-on encounters
with the world famous Big-Five animals
program allows up-close, personal experiences
with lions, elephants, buffalo, rhinos,
and in the rare occurrence leopards, as
well as other South African wildlife –
all within a malaria-free, private game
will learn every facet of operating a
game reserve producing memories that will
last you a lifetime and more importantly,
you will be part of the difference that
returns these lands to their natural,
not only about what you take with you,
but the lasting effects of what you leave
behind... your footprints.
2016 we added 2 new partners to the Umkhondo
family, as well as adding a few new reserves,
we have made such a difference at the
Garden Route Game Lodge we have decided
to expand our efforts to other reserves
nearby, we divide our time according to
the needs of these reserves.
