With hundreds of baby monkeys and baboons finding refuge at this rehabilitation centre, there is a great need for volunteers to aid in the long process of getting them back into the wild.
Tragically, many of these babies have lost their parents in traffic accidents and through sour meetings with humans. This rehabilitation centre, which started out with one injured monkey, is now home to over 400 primates in various stages of rehabilitation.
Volunteers get involved with a wide range of tasks at the centre, mainly working with the baby and juvenile primates, providing the care and attention that their parents would have done. This includes, but is not limited to:
This is an incredibly hands on project, which will eventually see your young charges being released to the wild- a process which can take up to 4 years.
Accommodation and food
The setting is beautiful, in a leafy green area close to Kruger National Park. Volunteers live in log cabin dormitories in the heart of the centre, never far from the chattering primates. The centre is a relaxing environment where volunteers are appreciated as members of the family. Delicious home cooked meals are enjoyed together, and at the end of the day a glass of wine or a bottle of beer is usually enjoyed sitting out on the terrace with other volunteers.
Trips are run from the centre, with many volunteers enjoying some time at Kruger National Park, walking through some of the gorges nearby and relaxing by the on site swimming pool.
