Program Duration

1-2 Week, 2-4 Week, 3-6 Month, 5-8 Week


Training will be provided by staff at the project. A full introduction covering all aspects of working at this project is given to volunteers upon arrival. Volunteers are then allocated a supervisor, who will oversee the volunteers' daily work. A manual is given to each volunteer which will include details of responsibilities, policies and procedures of the farm, the organizational structure, code of conduct and clear guidelines of all aspects of working practices.

Noah's Ark is only accepting volunteers of 18-40 years. If you are over 40 years and had your heart set on a hands-on experience with wildlife, we would highly recommend the Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary, Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, Baboon Sanctuary or Vervet Monkey Sanctuary.
