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!

International volunteers will need to check visa requirements from your own country should you wish to stay for longer than 3 months.

We are a non-profit organization protecting endangered species. We are on a 5000ha fenced farm. Currently our focus is on rhinos but ultimately we would like to establish a research centre for pangolins and hyaenas.
