Monkeyland-KZN, the most recent addition to the South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance (SAASA) family of ethical, hands-off animal sanctuaries, will open to the public later this year. We have lots of exciting volunteering opportunities. If you want to be amongst the first people to see our sanctuary, join our sales and marketing volunteer programme available from July 2018, before we open. We will have further volunteering opportunities available from November 2018.
We welcome applications from volunteers who can understand and speak English, are hard-working, fast-learning, enthusiastic and prepared to cheerfully fulfil all tasks. We have lots of different volunteering options available for short and longer-term stays.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age; there is no maximum age limit to volunteer with us.
Payment: We do not charge volunteers to come and work with us, the only cost is for your food, transport and accommodation which is in a private home about 10-15 minutes drive from our sanctuary. More information about the costs and what’s included can be found on the Volunteer Accommodation page.
Minimum and maximum stay requirements: Volunteers are normally only accepted if they are able to commit to a minimum period of 4 weeks. This is because of the training that is required. However, shorter stays may be possible, depending on the kind of work you want to get involved in. If you’d like to come and volunteer with us for less than 4 weeks, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator and we’ll accommodate this if we can. Volunteer placements are for a maximum of 12 weeks, as this is the duration of most short-term tourist visas. You may decide, once you’re here, that you wish to stay for longer. In that case, if we have availability, you can apply for an extension to your visa.
Contact information: If you have any questions about our volunteer programme or want to check availability for your planned dates before applying, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
