Trip overview

Embark on an unforgettable volunteer trip and experience South Africa’s authentic lifestyle whilst making a real difference to the vervet monkey population. On this amazing adventure, you’ll volunteer at the sanctuary created for the monkeys who were once considered vermin and were threatened by locals. With over 500 vervet monkeys who are ex-laboratory or unwanted pets or who've been orphaned, injured and abused, you'll be learning about the rehabilitation process, nursing the primates back to health and nurturing their second chance at life and contribute to an important, real-world rehabilitation project.

We offer the complete package for those looking to volunteer abroad and, best of all, we have joined with local project partners to secure you a guaranteed volunteering placement overseas. You’ll be contributing to a wildlife rehabilitation project with both confidence and purpose. Our team will help you with all the essentials, from visa assistance to airport transfers, volunteer accommodation, meals, onsite training and so much more.

Make a sustainable impact on monkey rescue and rehabilitation, meet new friends from all corners of the world and break away from your routine back home as you embark on this incredible volunteer travel opportunity. This trip is perfect for anyone ready to make a difference and lasting impact on South Africa’s wildlife whilst channelling the intriguing lifestyle at the same time.
