Kameleon's aim

The main aim of our company is to recruit volunteers and participants to take part in valuable projects in South Africa so that not only will you benefit from the knowledge and rewarding work that the projects offer, but that the projects themselves benefit from your participation. Your support is vital for the survival of many habitats and animals in Africa and each project has been handpicked by us for the quality of the educational program, the passion of the teams and their dedication to conservation and wildlife.

Who are we?

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves. Linda (from the Netherlands) came to South Africa as a volunteer in 2003. After this amazing experience, she had the opportunity to return to South Africa for one year to work as a project assistant at one of the wildlife volunteer projects. During that year she met Dave (South African), who worked at the neighbouring nature reserve. What started of as a holiday romance resulted in a wedding not long after. Dave and Linda now live on their farm close to Kruger National Park (Limpopo provence) in South Africa. A dream come true for both of them, living in the bush.

Kameleon Adventures was brought to life in 2004 by Marjolein van Dieren. She asked Linda to become Kameleons representative in South Africa. Linda has always enjoyed this work. Besides being Kameleons representative, Dave and Linda now manage Kameleon Adventures since November 2007.

With our passion for the bush, wildlife and the conservation thereof, and with our combined experience as traveller, volunteer, project assistant and field guide, we are convinced that we can help you create your own awsome experience in South Africa. Our bush is amazing, the people very friendly and there is just so much to do and experience...but there is nothing better than to share all this with others!
