What We Need

Come and be extra 'boots on the ground' alongside the Insimbi team to help with the regular monitoring of our wild rhino and ensure their well-being and protection. Regular patrols of the farm's fence lines will also be required, which will involve some farm maintenance e.g. fence repairs, snare sweeps, alien plant removal as well as litter picking on occasions. You'll also be able to assist with our social media blogs, fundraising and local school activations as well as the maintenance of our trail cameras, which will give you an insight into what other wildlife lives on the farm, over and above the blue wilderbeest, giraffe, zebra and various antelope that can often be seen. In short, if you are 18+ years of age and would like to have a unique rhino experience out in Africa's wonderful bushveld, then please do get in touch!

Volunteer Work
Volunteers contribute to a long term conservation project and get involved with a variety of conservation activities:
• work alongside rhinos.
• conservancy management
• wildlife monitoring
• anti-poaching patrols and snare sweeps
• educate school-children about conservation, wildlife and the environment
• learn about what is involved in running a conservancy
Wildlife conservation must go hand in hand with community education and engagement. A sharing of knowledge is key to the future security of Africa’s wildlife heritage. Volunteers work with community leaders and schools to share their passion for conservation and the environment.
