We are a wildlife rescue centre based close to Kruger Park in South Africa. We take in orphaned and injured wildlife with the aim of rehabilitating it for release back into protected areas. Our main focus is primates but we also take in a range of wildlife including antelope, small predators and birds of prey.

We are looking to fill specific long term volunteer roles such as volunteer coordinator, enrichment coordinator, admin assistant (to work in office few hours a day and rest of time with wildlife), someone to work with the horses and someone to work in the bar at the lodge (as well as working with the wildlife in the day). People with previous experience of volunteering with animals preferred. We also run shorter term paid volunteer placements.
