Description

Gain hands-on wildlife experience with a variety of animal orphans, and assist in the rehabiliation and release process. Work in Zimbabwe's only dedicated primate rehabilitation centre, with a mission for there to be no captive primates in Zimbabwe.

Join the sanctuary's team who have one goal in mind - the rehabilitation and release of Zimbabwe's wildlife.

Baboons and monkeys are the overlooked victims of the human-wildlife conflict, losing their natural habitat to over-grazing, agricultural expansion and the growth in human settlements. Their biggest predators are humans and are often treated as vermin, being shot or poisoned for eating crops and small livestock.

The sanctuary was founded in 2014 when Umfazi the orphaned baby baboon was given to the team to raise. It remains the only dedicated primate rehabilitation and release facility in Zimbabwe. Since 2014, when the sanctuary was purpose-built to house primates, the centre has grown and has an open door policy to all animals in need of care.

Volunteer with small animals at a responsible, ethical wildlife sanctuary and have a rewarding and unique wildlife experience.
