Volunteering for 2 weeks+

The majority of our South African and International volunteers are individuals – students, young people and the not-so-young (!), who stay with us for a minimum of 2 weeks and the honest truth is that we simply couldn’t cope without them! We have a very small number of permanent and long term volunteer staff who really need the help of our many shorter term volunteer.

We have to ask volunteers to pay for the opportunity to work with us – this covers their meals and accommodation, activities and a donation to help us with the costs of running Bambelela, which are extensive. Feeding our monkeys alone costs over 30,000 Rand per month and electricity costs are very high in winter.

We really hope that you will decide to volunteer at Bambelela and for more information on costs, please email us with details.  Alternatively you can apply through one of the organisations with which we are registered Рsee below. We look forward to hearing from you! Thank you in advance on behalf of all our vervet monkeys, baboons and other injured and orphaned wildlife!


Long Term FGASA or Veterinary Student/Nurse Internship Opportunities

We are often looking for suitable interns to join us at Bambelela, so if you think you might be interested please email us at silke@belanet.co.za to find out if we have an opening and to get further details! We also give opportunities to those interested in research opportunities involving monkey behaviour.
