Volunteer Opportunities in South AfricaWhile South Africa has developed immensely over the last 20 years, it still struggles with a number of education, healthcare and environmental issues that require attention. As a country that is in the midst of great change, finding your volunteering place and cause has an incredible advantage because you can being a part of a movement of ongoing development. This - coupled with breathtaking landscapes and ultra rich culture - is probably why South Africa is very popular when it comes to a volunteering destination.
Volunteer Abroad with Local Non-Profits
We are based in Kwazulu Natal, in South Africa.
We are an environmentally friend sanctuary for any captive-bred big cats. One of Panthera Africa's main purposes is to be an educational platform where we create awareness about conditions big cats face in captivity, and how animal welfare and enrichment play a vital role in giving them the best captive life possible. We are a true sanctuary where no cub petting, breeding or trading takes place. We are a blue print of how a non-profit sanctuary, focusing on animal welfare, can become self-sufficient, and we aim to change all breeding facilities into sustainable ethical programs.
We believe in the equal importance of both humans and animals, and we will do our absolute best to give you the experience of a lifetime. We know from personal experience that this includes both quality time with animals, as well as with staff and the other volunteers. Hearing a lion roar up close, getting love and recognition from a leopard, hearing the chuffing of a tiger, or seeing them appreciate and love the toys you make to enrich their lives = BLISS.
