Alter 18+

Volunteering with us offers a wonderful opportunity to work with our amazingly beautiful ,friendly and intelligent Appaloosa horses and also to help us rescue abused and neglected horses and orphaned wildlife and to assist in their care and rehabilitation. As a volunteer you will be involved in all aspects of horse care from feeding to grooming, health checks, exercising and training. It will include working with some of our young untrained horses to get them used to different people and ready for trail riding. You may be required to assist in going on rescues to collect the animals and help with their subsequent care and rehabilitation. You will be able to release your inner cowboy/girl by using the horses for cattle herding and counting of game when required. Depending on the time of year you may get the chance to help us with the showing of the horses, both in hand and riding classes at various shows around the country if this interests you. The Ranch is a working farm and you will be able to help in the feeding and care of all the animals which include cattle, alpacas, ostriches, vervet monkey, sheep and our four springbok babies who were orphaned due to the drought.  Wildlife on the Ranch include families of meerkats and ground squirrels, wart hogs, steenbok and springbok, regular patrolling of the Ranch and fences is necessary to ensure the welfare of the animals. We also now have another option for you if you prefer to work with children and that is the newly formed Apache Appaloosa Pre-primary School. The school is opening in 2020 and at first the main focus is to provide a place for children to learn and grow while their parents work. Many children in Namibia have to stay at home by themselves as their parents have to work and can't afford child care or are not close enough to a town in order for them to go to a pre-primary facility, this in turn results in them being behind when they start school. Apache Appaloosa Pre=primary school will be free to children on the farm and local area. It will be a place for them to be supervised and learn basic literacy and numeracy skills, play and socialize. The classroom is placed on Apache Appaloosa Ranch. As a volunteer you would help supervise the children, play with them and teach them subjects you learnt throughout your childhood. Whatever your knowledge you will have a lot to offer which will help them tremendously when they start school and you will make a huge difference in these childrens lives. We promise it will be a life changing experience for you as well.


Your day will start at 7.00 with feeding the horses, bottle feeding those that require it and the other animals on the farm. Breakfast will follow whilst all are happily eating. The morning will be spent first with health checks, then grooming and taking the horses out to their camps. Moving the cattle if needed.  Working and training with the horses will continue and finally a check of the Ranch and fences will complete the morning. Lunch is 12.00 to 2.00 (3.00) summer due to temperatures. After lunch its halter training and grooming for the babies. also spending some time with the Alpacas, springboks and the young ostriches. Trail riding.  After the afternoon feeding its time for you to relax before dinner. The evening is for you to enjoy as you wish. You are free to explore the Ranch and spot wildlife and birds or just chill out with a drink and watch the amazing African sunsets.

For Apache Appaloosa Pre-primary school your day will also begin at 7.00 with school opening and will continue until 12.30. The afternoons are free for you to play with the children or plan the next days teaching plan and subject exercises.
