Summary

Volunteer with Children and Animals


This project provides volunteers with the unique opportunity of not only inspiring a generation of underprivileged schoolchildren to become passionate about wildlife conservation but also of caring for some of South Africa’s most iconic species.

Each week they welcome a new group of 8 local children who stay for a full 5 days and are inspired through interaction with volunteers and wild animals.

These children arrive very shy, but by the end of the week they walk out smiling, laughing and enthusiastic about protecting the environment. This is all thanks to people like YOU!!! You will be doing something meaningful in your life while having an absolute fantastic experience.

It’s a Win-Win situation for everyone involved. You will play a vital role in the successful implementation of their education curriculum, with more focus on topics such as anti-poaching, wildlife, private game reserves, ecosystems and tourism.

Volunteers are vital for the success of this project. You will spend your days experiencing the bush, helping the animals in need while educating the children of Africa. You will spend your evenings playing games, getting involved with social talks and sitting around the bonfire enjoying the company of volunteers from all over the world as you stare into the starriest skies that you have ever seen!

What are you waiting for? Come join us and help change the world!

The project is for all people who want to make the world a better place and are interested in helping others. You just need to have a decent level of English and be older that 18 years old, unless coming with a guardian.
