We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds and nationalities. There are no requirements for qualifications or past experience, but the one thing we do ask is that you have a genuine love of wildlife and nature and are enthusiastic about joining one of our projects. Apart from being animal lovers - obviously!- people volunteer for all sorts of reasons and under many different circumstances. After all, there is a lot you can get out of volunteering!
A lot of students participate in volunteering projects, either during their holidays or as part of a gap year in Africa. It's a great way to gain some practical experience while also exploring an exciting country!
Whether you are looking for an extended commitment to volunteering during a sabbatical or a holiday with a difference, volunteering can be a fantastic career break abroad, providing an eye-opening change from a 9-5 job.
Volunteering as a family is an amazing way to allow your kids to experience a different way of life and learn about South Africa's wildlife, nature and culture by getting directly involved and making a worthwhile contribution.
Volunteering is not just for youngsters - we have many retirees and mature volunteers join our projects. Chat to our team about which project suits you best.
