Wildlife and domestic animal care

Tourism volunteering philanthropy

You can work closely with, and actively participate in, the conservation of African wildlife.

The sanctuary provides a safe refuge for orphaned and injured wildlife including a number of lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, caracals, baboons and ostriches as well as many farmyard animals such as sheep, goat, chickens and geese. You would provide an important resource in caring for animals as well as helping to maintain and develop the sanctuary.

During your time at the sanctuary you will feed the animals, take them on walks, go on game counts, clean their living space and help with any other projects that may come up at the sanctuary. You do not need any special skills or qualifications to be a part of the volunteer program, as you will receive guidance and training through the sanctuary staff members. All you need is an enthusiasm to learn, an open mind for new experiences and that you become fully involved and immersed in this unique opportunity. Your African adventure awaits!
