Conservation Opportunities

As an optional add-on we also offer the opportunity of spending a minimum of one week and a maximum of two weeks up at Lions Bluff  - see www.lionsblufflodge.com

We also offer you the opportunity of working with the wardens on our turtle protected beach where you will be helping collect data on breeding females, number of hatchlings. You might like to use your afternoon off to do this work; there is however, NO obligation to get involved in the conservation side if it’s of no interest. We can sort this out after you arrive.

What’s on offer?

Lions Bluff is a truly unique place and one of the most beautiful in the world. Set atop a bluff, as the name implies, it enjoys a 360º vista of the African plains below. Sit outside your tent, or on your veranda, if you’re lucky enough to get an upgrade, and you can be lost in the silence forever…watch the animals below go about their daily business of eating, drinking and just being.

The Package

  • Length of stay: minimum 7 days – maximum 14 days. To be taken at the end of your volunteering time with us

  • Price: Ksh2000/= per day. Full board (approx. £16.50 depending on the rate of exchange)

  • Accommodation:  You will be housed in driver tents, ordinary tents or self-catering shelter. If there is availability you might be lucky and get an upgrade to a banda – complete luxury!

  • Transport: you will travel from Vipingo to Mombasa by matatu (local bus) and then onwards from Mombasa to their local village of Masarongo and back; also by matatu.

  • Conservancy fees:  Ksh 200/= per day these go direct to the Conservancy

  • Times available: generally any time BUT on public holidays & during peak times etc the accommodation might get more basic.

And what does Lions Bluff want from you? 

  • They want your muscles, brains and enthusiasm!

  • They want you to muck-in

  • They want Ambassadors to spread the word and get them on the international map as LUMO and as Lions Bluff.

  • …..and they need the community to see that Lions Bluff can have a positive knock-on effect.

What you would be doing:

  • Learn about the LUMO Community & Conservancy

  • Go out on anti-poaching (de- snaring) patrols with rangers

  • General patrols with rangers

  • Possibly recording vegetation species, especially in the more remote parts of the sanctuary

  • Recording/mapping of water pans and assessing which could be dug out to hold water longer

  • In time helping in the start of the proposed tree planting zone

  • Any other projects that Lions Bluff might be involved in

  • Visit the local village and school to get perspective on poverty levels

Why this is an unique opportunity?

Probably most people visiting Kenya have dreamt of becoming a Game Warden….out in the bush, watching the animals, being involved from the ground up? Well, we are offering you just that ….probably a-once-in-a-lifetime experience that will enrich your life forever. You won’t just be a tourist; you’ll be part of Lions Bluff….and no amount of money can ever buy you that!
