Talking more about my experience, being there gave me a lot of friends and also a new way of seeing the world and how I can do for it.
The Vmf was truly a place that I hold very dear in my hart , Dave & Jo are two amazing humans. Living with the monkey was one of the most magical things I have ever done. You really do feel like you make a difference. Would recommend the Vmf to anyone.

The vmf is an amazing place. I always think its paradise when I was there. I went as a 6month volunteer and ended up staying two years to help volunteer as the Vet nurse. Best decision I ever made. Learnt more about the primates and observe their behaviour. The staff and volunteers that go through are all wonderful, met tons of people all over the world. The founder and his wife are amazing people. They are always there caring for the vervets as well as all animals and the volunteers and staff that stay. Just a nice family feel, made my time there comfortable and it help me be less home sick. Its also nice because anyone who goes there does make a difference and appreciate for their work, a nice team feeling. So I'm very happy to know there is a place like them out there helping the animals anyway they can.

So great to be able to come and help support the important work here. Good healthy, hearty and tastey Vegan food. Evenings chatting round the fire-pit. Fantastic staff and volunteers. Fun trips out organised. Amazing views, wildlife and weather. I have completely fallen in love with the place and the people. Can't recommend enough.

I worked as a volunteer staff member and had the most amazing experience, learning about the vervet species working with a large team of local volunteers and local staff. Great atmosphere fun evenings and great day trips with opportunities to visit Kruger national parks and other sights. I would highly recommend the VMF to anyone interested in volunteering.
