What's the project about?

This combination conservation volunteering experience enables volunteers to contribute to endangered species conservation within a private conservancy, and help rehabilitate primates at a small animal sanctuary. Volunteers experience the thrill of witnessing Africa’s most iconic animals close at hand, as you support a world-renowned rhino conservation organisation. You will then transfer to Bulawayo to work at Zimbabwe’s only dedicated primate rehabilitation centre.

How will I be contributing?

Volunteers on these two conservation programmes have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play an important role in the daily operations of a rhino conservancy, where you will experience a wide range of game park management and anti-poaching activities. At the wildlife sanctuary you will support local staff in all areas of animal care, rehabilitation and release. Each volunteer plays a vital role at both projects, whether it be looking after orphaned monkeys, or monitoring rhinos and elephants.

What makes this project ethical?

The human-wildlife conflict is the greatest issue faced by conservationists today. Private conservancies and small organisations play an enormous role in finding solutions. Through these two conservation volunteering projects, you will participate in the protection of vulnerable large wildlife, plus care for and rehabilitate orphaned and injured small animals, readying them for their eventual release. The focus of both projects is to enable their wildlife to live back in the wild, or as natural a life as possible.
