Get lost in the oldest desert
in the world, Namibia
Remote wilderness, diverse wildlife & towering dunes
Your Namibia adventure
All of the projects in Namibia are run by the same dedicated team. However, they are spread throughout the country, helping the wildlife and communities in most need. The main base is situated at the wildlife sanctuary (just over an hour away from the capital Windhoek), where you will start and end your volunteering trip no matter which programme you choose.
Namibia is renowned for its diverse and fascinating wildlife, including desert elephants, black rhinos and the worlds largest population of cheetahs! Get up close and personal with these iconic animals while topping up your tan - with an average of 300 days of sunshine every year!
Help care and look after orphaned and injured animals in the award winning sanctuary, contribute to vital research on carnivores roaming the deserts, provide an extra pair of hands at the local lifeline clinic or help teach the San Bushmen.
Our programmes start on selected days each week throughout the year and you can choose to join us from 2-12 weeks.
Our structured and safe programmes makes volunteering in Namibia ideal for first time and / or solo travellers. Volunteering is the perfect way to meet like-minded people and allows you to explore Namibia as a group.
- Accommodation, meals and 24-hour airport pickup
- 24/7 in-country & UK support
- Pre-departure buddy lists and a dedicated Namibia Facebook group to talk with other volunteers
- Assistance with all aspects of your trip and comprehensive pre-departure information
Volunteering opportunities in Namibia
Namibia Wildlife SanctuaryGet up close and personal to incredible animals, such as cheetahs, leopards, lions, baboons and so much more! The Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary is situated on a 3,200-hectare reserve near Windhoek and offers a safe refuge for an ever-growing abundance of orphaned, injured and abandoned animals.
Namibia Carnivore Conservation & ResearchVolunteer as a big cat conservationist in the stunning Kanaan Region of Namibia, where your help will ensure the carnivores habitat and all other animals that call it home, are safe for years to come. Your time will be focused on researching the free-roaming populations of carnivores to support the important role in mitigating human-wildlife conflict.
Namibia Lifeline ClinicProvide an essential pair of hands at the Lifeline Clinic in Epukrio, where you will contribute to the medical welfare of the San Busman community as well as gaining first-hand experience of healthcare in a developing country.
