Cheetah Conservation Volunteer Project in Cape Town, South Africa
Overview: cheetah conservation project in Cape Town, South Africa
The Wild Cat Farm project is all about the animals! We believe in the rights and protection of animals. The farm is home to a variety of wild animals such as lions, cheetahs, servals, caracals, black footed cats, the mischievous meerkats and more. The farm acts as a home to wild cats that are not able to be released back into the wild, as well as a nursery for cubs that are brought to the farm by neighbouring breeders to be hand-raised before they are relocated onto reserves.
The farm is currently applying to become an animal sanctuary in the Free State region and you can be a part of this amazing transition. In order for us to become a sanctuary, we need to clear the farm of all alien vegetation, make it suitable for the indigenous wildlife, and create enclosures for animal rehabilitation. Volunteers will contribute physically, allowing the farm to care for more animals.

Your coordinator in Cape Town
"My name is Jana Williams, I am originally from Germany, but living in South Africa for 8 1/2 years. Nearly 6 years of those I stayed in the mother city of Cape Town. I am now managing all internship and volunteer placements for Studentsgoabroad Cape Town. During my studies of Social Work I did internships abroad myself. I have been to London, India and even in Cape Town which was 12 years ago. While still living in Germany I started placing interns in Southern African countries and always enjoyed this activity. This activity is interesting, exciting, versatile and most of all positive, as a stay abroad always enlarges the personal horizon.
