Make a tangible and lasting impact in the lives of rescued, injured and orphaned wildlife. Work at an African wildlife sanctuary with lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, caracals, warthogs, baboons, antelope, and small mammals. In return, volunteers are provided with an experience of a lifetime, take a hands-on role in animal care and conservation, and meeting people from around the world while working in Africa. No previous experience is necessary to participate in this program but volunteers should be at least 18 years.
Main activities include:
Accommodation is in 3 bed rooms or large 2 bed permanent tents on a platform. Bedding (sheets, duvet and pillow) is provided, and communal hot showers and flush toilets are provided. Three balanced meals per day are provided on a self-serve basis. Vegetarian meals are also available upon request. The volunteer camp has a swimming pool to cool down during the summer months. Power outlets (220V) are available in the communal dining area.
We recommend that volunteers have rabies and tetanus vaccinations.
Dates – Arrival and Departure
This program runs throughout the year and volunteers can sign-up for any 2 weeks and up to 3 months. Volunteers should arrive on any Monday and depart on a Sunday for a complementary transfer to the wildlife sanctuary. Transfers on other days will be charged an additional fee. The sanctuary lies only 35km from the airport and yet is nestled in the African bush.
Note: Volunteers who would like to see more of beautiful Namibia can choose to book a pre- or post-program safari to the Etosha N.P., the Namib Desert or a longer tour through the country. For more detail, visit Tours & Safaris on our website.
