Experience an Adventure as a Volunteer in the Beautiful South Africa

Volunteer programs are available for Kiwi's in some amazing projects including projects helping save the lions, cheetahs, tigers and other beautiful wildlife in Africa. 

You'll be totally involved in the conservation and rehabilitation of endangered and at risk animals in Africa. We also have Orphanage Projects (for human orphans rather than lion cubs) as well.
