(Information provided by Kim Roques, All Out, 2008.)

All Out Africa runs a number of conservation and community projects by offering people from around the world the opportunity to participate in the projects as a travel experience of value. Anyone between the ages of 17 and 65 years can join and All Out organizes all your food, accommodation, transport, equipment, activities as well as daily guidance and support. A project fee is needed to help cover these costs and support the needs of the project. Visit their website to find out more.

All Out assists SNTC by carrying out the bulk of the wildlife research and monitoring in the two main Reserves, Malolotja and Malwula.
