About the Program

Your program is situated at the base of the Waterberg Mountain range on a beautiful 1000Ha farm that boasts a variety of fauna and flora.

Our main focus is on conserving the cheetah species and this with our breeding program. Our breeding is a precise science as we pride ourselves on the breeding of the valuable bloodlines needed for the species to continue.

The volunteers are an extremely important part of our program as education is key for conservation. Our program includes many activities like feeding of all the animals on the farm which includes the preparation of the food, cleaning of enclosures, assist in the training and care of ambassador cheetahs, daily maintenance of the farm such as enclosure maintenance, relocating animals to new enclosures, revamping enclosures, ongoing enrichment for all our animals. This is not limited to these tasks as we are a working farm and up keep is endless. 

Game counts ,(on the 1000ha farm we have free roaming giraffe, zebra, kudu, ostrich, impala, sable, hartebeest, wildebeest, eland and warthogs), are also an important part of volunteer work and is coupled with animal identification and part of the learning process for them. We have introduced giraffe identification as part of the program which involves the volunteers photographing the giraffes and identifying them via special marks they can see. This data will then be captured for each giraffe. When we do supplement feed, the volunteers are the ones to put out the feed for our free roaming game. 

We pride ourselves that our volunteers are hands on with everything and are educated in conservation matters facing these endangered species. We find the hands-on, ethical approach to be the most rewarding for our volunteers and they go away with a sense of accomplishment and an eagerness to conserve. 

As our environment is under huge pressure, our volunteers like to walk down to the dining area in the mornings-this lessens their carbon footprint and immerses them into nature; a walk they thoroughly enjoy.

In addition to the program, their are optional additional activities in the area that they can do on their free time. these are also currently being reviewed and new additions are in the pipeline.

Tagesablauf

A day in the life of a volunteer starts with you waking up to the amazing sounds of the bush world and a walk down to breakfast which offers you the opportunity to see the many species on the farm. After breakfast, we generally do the feeding and cleaning and any other tasks we have for the morning, which takes us up to lunch time. After lunch we complete any tasks around the farm that need to be done or completed until we knock off. You will have a period of rest before dinner and the evenings to yourself. 

Weekends are your time off, especially Sundays and there are a variety of activities we can arrange for you in the area (at your own cost). It's a long day but a very rewarding one.

Tasks vary on the farm but are of a wide variety so you will be involved in all aspects of running a farm. Tasks may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Preparing raw game meat or chickens for the carnivores
  • Helping on the feeding round where we dish out the prepared meat to the cats
  • Cleaning enclosures
  • Helping with the daily maintenance or upkeep of the enclosures
  • Assisting the animal team in activities, such as the cheetah run or cheetah interaction
  • Assisting the animal team in daily training session with young or ambassador cats
  • Doing fence checks on the farm (enclosures and perimeter fences)
  • Putting out Lucerne (special feed) for the free roaming game
  • Doing general game counts, Giraffe identification, tracking and camera trap data
  • General Maintenance such as road erosion control, thatch grass cutting and collection and/or any other jobs that are needed to be completed.
