Volunteer at the Jane Goodall chimpanzee sanctuary in South Africa. A chance to experience these amazing endangered species up close and contribute to chimp rescue and conservation efforts.

Being the first and only chimpanzee sanctuary in South Africa, this project aims to bring the world of chimpanzees closer to humanity through education and tourism.

This ethical chimpanzee sanctuary is located within the 1000 hectare Umhloti Nature Reserve, in beautiful bush surroundings with free-roaming antelope, 15 km from the town of Nelspruit.

During your free time you can visit the nearby Kruger National Park, Sudwala Caves, Lowveld National Botanical Gardens and travel the famous Panorama Route of South Africa.
