Volunteer in South Africa – The Wildlife Sanctuary

Hartebeespoort, South Africa

MeMy name is Jens; I am 21 years old and from Germany. I volunteered at the Wildlife Sanctuary near to Johannesburg, for a period two weeks.

St. Lucia, South Africa

I always wanted to help people and children around the world, to contribute in their lives, and make a difference. Volunteering in South Africa was my perfect opportunity.

There were so many exciting experiences and opportunities I had during my stay at the Tiger and Lion Park. As soon as I arrived I was greeted by the lion and tiger cubs and introduced to all of the other wildlife. My jaw dropped to the floor when I met Ice, the white Bengal Tiger, who was 8 weeks at the time.

Volunteer in SOUTH AFRICA – GREAT WHITE SHARK CONSERVATION

Gansbaai, South Africa


Volunteering with GoEco has been an unforgettable experience. I knew I wanted to do the Great White Shark Conservation project as soon as I read the description online a year ago.
