Southern Africa is a fantastic destination of choice for anyone with a passion for animals and their care. We believe there is nowhere better in the world to gain extremely useful skills and animal management experience than in the heart of the African bush.
Our innovative projects will give you hands-on experience in the care of domesticated or rehabilitated animals in need of veterinary assistance in game reserves, sanctuaries and animal shelters. You will have the chance to get up-close-and-personal with some of Africa’s most exquisite animals, while developing a deeper understanding for conservation and animal care.

Join our rescue and release team at a growing wildlife sanctuary in South Africa as we care for unwanted illegal pets, injured animals, and lost wildlife. A growing human population in this area forces wild animals into conflict with local people, so many species find themselves in need of assistance. You will be helping to rehabilitate these animals, with the ultimate goal of releasing them back where they belong.
Animal protection and care are often overlooked in impoverished communities, including those surrounding the iconic South African city of Cape Town. As a volunteer, you’ll join African Impact at a reputable animal rescue center and assist in rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing lost, abandoned, abused, and neglected domestic pets.
