Overview

Volunteering with animals in Africa is one thing. Volunteering with lions, however, offers a totally unique and incredible insight into what it takes to conserve wildlife on this magical continent.

The Lion population is dwindling fast. According to IUCN research, there were 200,000 lions in the wild just 25 years ago. Today, just over 22,000 remains. The lion population has seen the highest decline than any other species, including the rhino. The Lion is so iconic and precious to Africa, and we must do something now to stop this decline.

Volunteer with Africa’s iconic wildlife and the magnificent African lion, making your mark on wildlife conservation and park management, as you join us in our mission to protect and preserve this exquisite species for many more generations to come.

With incredible and extremely close lion encounters on offer, this is a once in a lifetime adventure that awaits you.

Itinerary

There is no such thing as a typical day when you work with lions. It’s all part of the fun when you volunteer with wildlife in Africa! Every day presents new challenges and tasks. You can expect to get involved in a variety of different activities that include the following:

1.) Walk with Lions and enjoy unique and unforgettable close encounters with these magnificent big cats. You will accompany the cubs on daily walks in the only place in Zimbabwe that you can do this!
2.)Assist in the upkeep of our resident lions by caring for them, feeding them and cleaning their enclosures. Take part in behavioural enrichment activities by making toys from natural materials to stimulate the lions’ predatory and sensory behaviours.
3.)Attend conflict scenes in order to provide help and solutions, record vital data, map predator movements through camera trapping and spoor surveying.
