An opportunity to make new friends and form long-term relationships with like-minded people while you help care for over 500 monkeys getting involved in the everyday tasks of running a monkey sanctuary. We take in many orphans each year which you may be involved with hand-rearing during baby season teaching them to drink and get ready for their introduction to monkey moms, you may be lucky enough to see juniors venture out into their new enclosures, watching them become real monkeys. We have some ex-pets here that often need some time spent grooming from outside the cages before they are ready to be integrated into troops. In addition you will help the monkeys further by building new enclosures and maintaining the upkeep of the foundation.
We promote a Vegan life style and are well known for our great meals and variety. The work at our centre can be very challenging and requires on-the-job training so we prefer to have volunteers for a minimum period of 4 weeks and are happy to have long term volunteers for which we offer a discount depending on length of stay. Please enquire regarding 2 or 3 week stays. There are also plenty of opportunities to visit local attractions such as the Kruger National Park or to go on adventures with other volunteers to local sites and site seeing expeditions. Volunteer fees go towards accommodation, meals and of course the running of the foundation
