African Impact has several animal hands on volunteering options. These Volunteer Projects all allow you to interact with either rescued, abused or abandoned animals or work with animals that are part of a rehabilitation program. Volunteering with animals abroad options include:
This rescue center welcomes all forms of wildlife in the region of KZN, South Africa. Volunteers help staff feed, clean and rehabilitate the animals which number over 400 a year.
This project allows you to work hands on with young lions which form part of a pioneering rehabilitation program to release lions back to the wild in many areas of Africa.
Our project in Malawi is a wildlife and monkey sanctuary is set in a green oasis in the metropolis of Lilongwe, Malawi’s largest city. You will help the highly dedicated team take care of rescued wild animals and where possible work on their release plan.
Finally, our biggest hands on projects are our lion volunteer projects. These are very unique programs working on releasing captive-bred lions into the wild. These projects have attracted much attention including two animal planet documentaries. When on one of the three projects you will spend you days walking with lions helping them adjust and learn to become wild.
Whatever program you choose, volunteering with animal abroad is an absolute must for any animal lover.
