Ames wildlife experience

wilderness is calling you

Celebrate & champion nature conservation on an immersive experience to connect with nature and wildlife in an incredible authentic setting.
Join us to experience the work of AMES hands-on in South Africa and our partner in Namibia. We believe that educating about and experiencing the wildlife will trigger thoughts, ideas and inspiration and ultimately help our mission to stop the extinction of Africa’s most endangered species.

Our locations

South Africa

Our reserve and camp is approx. 3.5 hours north-west of Johannesburg and offers simple, but comfortable tents, a community room for meals and lectures, as well as a fireplace to end inspirational days adequately.


In collaboration with our partner EHRA (Elephant-Human Relations Aid), we offer an AMES exclusive week in the plains of Namibia. Tracking elephants, experiencing wide areas of untouched nature, and seeing incredible sunrises and sunsets - all while helping EHRA to protect wild elephants hands-on.

Frequently asked questions

Will there be “free” time?

Yes, there are deliberate times in the agenda to allow for flexible and individual planning.

Is there internet and cellphone reception? 

There is reception - though it is weak and partially unreliable. There is good wifi in the camp, though it is depended on electricity and there has been outages in the past.

Can you arrive later or leave earlier? 

Yes, we understand busy schedules and can organize for later arrival or earlier departure with individual transit to the airport. Please note that this induces additional cost that need to be covered.

What equipment is needed?

We will share a detailed packing recommendation list. We will also provide an AMES ranger kit for every participant as part of the package. 

Do I need to take Malaria precautions? 

Malaria is a risk in some parts of South Africa, not so much in the Waterberg area. We still recommend you fill your malaria prescription before you leave and take enough with you for the entire length of your trip. Follow your doctor's instructions for taking the pills; some need to be started before you leave.
