Volunteer with rhino

This unique wildlife conservation volunteer programme combines rhino and elephant conservation work with community empowerment and education projects, game park management and wildlife research. The project is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play an important role in the daily activities involved in the operation of a rhino conservancy, and become part of a dedicated, passionate conservation family.

You can be sure that your days will be filled with interesting work that is genuinely needed, and you will always be doing something purposeful.

family friendly volunteer project

** Family-friendly volunteering!

This project is an amazing experience for family volunteer groups with children of all ages. We recommend five years old is the minimum, but please do get in touch if you have younger children, as the project can usually accommodate them. You and your family will have a dedicated guide and will do most of the activities on the normal volunteer programme, tailored to your interests and the ages of your children.

“My family of four (11 & 13 year old) spent two amazing weeks volunteering in June. It is difficult to embody the experience in words. My 11 year old daughter responded when asked about the trip that “…it was life changing.”. And indeed it was. We have travelled all over the world and this is the first place we have decided to return to – with plans to return in 2021. If you are at all inclined to do volunteer work abroad- this is a wonderful place to visit. Solo OR with family.”
– The Galenkamp family
