Volunteers will have the rare and exciting opportunity to actively participate in the conservation, rehabilitation, care and research of African wildlife. They will also have a few Research  sites to chose from. Research sites  can be found further down within the overview. The sanctuary currently provides a safe refuge for orphaned, injured or conflict wildlife including several lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, caracals, warthogs, antelope and baboons as well as a host of birds, smaller African mammals and farmyard animals. Wildlife Conservation Volunteers are crucial in helping us to care for the animals in rehabilitation or permanent captivity at the sanctuary, as well as helping to maintain and develop the sanctuary. This is an exceptional opportunity to get hands on experience with African wildlife and the many aspects of their care. For the full experience and understanding of what we do, we highly recommend that you book at least three weeks with us. 


Dagelijkse activiteiten

The volunteering schedule works on a rotational group system, which ensures every volunteer gets to experience as many of the activities as possible. The groups work two to three activities a day between the hours of 8am and 5pm. Volunteers get a short break in the morning followed by lunch from 1pm-2:30pm. Weekends are not part of the rotation schedule; on Saturdays, volunteers will participate in certain activities in the morning, and in the afternoon there will be a fun non-work related activity followed by a braai (barbeque). On Sunday, a small team will participate in food prep in the morning and a different small team will participate in the afternoon, so you will have half the day off. All non-working hours are free time to explore the sanctuary.


Research Sites

Internet toegang
Onze excuses, geen toegang op de project site
Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH) in Windhoek. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Namibië.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Namibië biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Namibië dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Namibië.
