Animals in Africa - Volunteer Programme

 

HISTORY

Voluntourism – vacation with a purpose – has considerably grown since the mid 1980s. A study discovered the motivational push factors that drive some leisure tourists to seek volunteer experience during their leisure trip; is the perceived benefits that vacation tourists derive from participating in volunteering activities at the destination; and the highlights of the vacation experience with a volunteering component. Animals in Africa, is a volunteer program for anyone who has a passion for working with animals, either in the field of Animal Science or in a more general animal care-oriented role. The program is an ideal way to gain knowledge and experience or putting skills into practice, while contributing to the well-being and future of our horses at Horse Whispers and contributing to our rural livestock community project around Kruger National Park. Animals in Africa's were established to support activities that can contribute towards a livestock community project around Kruger National Park. Animals in Africa are based in Hazyview and operates from Horse Whispers as well as Nottinghill Equestrian Estate in White River.
