Care for Wild Africa is running this exciting volunteer program with our reputable agents. This project has been running for the past 18 years and we are very proud of the number of volunteers that have become our conservation ambassadors.

From treating injured and/or abandoned wildlife to bottle-feeding orphaned rhino calves, you’ll find yourself working hands-on in this real conservation project. Spending time up close with amazing creatures, you’ll also get an unrivalled insight into their behaviour and individual personalities.

As well as rhino, Care for Wild Africa looks after many other species, so you could also find yourself helping to care for hippo, lions, meerkats, antelope and even birds of prey among others. All the time, you’ll be learning about wildlife care from leading conservationists.

We offer volunteers the opportunity to learn first-hand how to care for abandoned and injured wild animals at our wildlife sanctuary.

International Volunteers

We welcome international volunteers who would like to come to South Africa for the once in a lifetime experience of working with the wild animals of Africa.

As this is a paid-for volunteering programme, the funds raised help tremendously to keep the sanctuary and the animals safe and healthy.

If you’re coming from abroad, please indicate on the form provided.
