  • Fantastic place to volunteer and help Vervet monkeys. All food Vegan. Great respect for all animal life. Over 500 monkeys kept in large enclosures enabling them to be in troops as in the wild. Orphaned baby monkeys integrated into troops using foster monkeys to give them a family unit. Injured monkeys treated and returned to own troops in the wild. Great on the job training.
  • If anyone wants to experience an amazing volunteering time in South Africa then I can highly recommend the Vervet Monkey Foundation. It's a wonderful place, in the middle of nature, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You are surrounded by vervet monkeys, free living ones and the ones that are living in huge enclosures. The opportunity you get to work with the monkeys, in a big variety of tasks, is very rewarding. I've spent quite some time at the foundation, from 3 weeks to almost 3 years, and if I only could I would go back! I sure can say.. GO FOR IT!
