Need Help?

Our Wildlife Conservation, Rescue take place over several different properties to help the Cheetah, wild dog, elephants, monkeys, vultures, eagles to mention some. The program incorporates wild, rescued and rehabilitated animals to improve their living and environmental conditions.

These projects require participants (volunteers) to move between locations on completion of assigned tasks. All the locations used are within 25km of the Volunteer accommodation. The main purpose of the projects we are involved in is to detect the needs and improve the living and environmental conditions of the various animals residing at these locations.

The volunteers will have the opportunity to interact with some of the animals that will be encountered, in a respectful way and always under supervision

CHEETAH AND WILD DOG BREEDING CENTER

The Centers mission is to ensure the survival of the Cheetah, African Wild dog and other wild animals. They have succeeded in breeding with the king cheetah for the first time in captivity and today have bred over 800 cheetahs as well as wild dogs, brown hyena, servals and other endangered animals.

ELEPHANT PROJECT

This Elephant Reserve for orphaned and rescued animals, provides a safe environment for young African elephants in need of a temporary home, as well as a safe environment for a big bull (male) elephant called Amarula rescued from a Zoo in 2006. This elephant sanctuary started in 1999 with a strong conservational purpose, and working on a vision to release all the elephants into an environment where they can be more independent once they are older.

MONKEY PROJECT

Primates are under constant threat. They are hunted for meat, body parts or captured as pets and exported illegally to every corner of our planet. Monkeys that where kept as pets and then become unwanted, are rescued and released into a wild forest with waterfalls and mountain springs. It is very important to have a safe environment where monkeys can be rehabilitated and professionals and volunteers can take care of them.

VULTURES, EAGLES, OWLS AND OTHER WILD BIG BIRDS PROJECT

Vulture conservation programme for advancing knowledge, awareness and innovation in the conservation of Africa vulture populations for the benefit and well-being of society. Today, vultures face an unprecedented onslaught from human activities. They have to cope with electrocutions and collisions with electrical structures, poisonings, land-use changes, a decrease in food availability and exposure to toxicity through veterinary drugs, to list just a few of some of the challenges facing vultures today.

GAME RESERVE PROJECT

The area is home to a diversity of “plains game”. The objective of our involvement here is to create a fully functional, clean and well managed nature reserve that is accessible to the public and will generate a consistent flow of visitors to the area. There is a long list of conservation orientated tasks to carry out on the property and we will ensure that every second we spend there will be to the benefit of the animals and plants on the reserve.
