Vuka Volunteers Projects

We have chosen these specific sanctuaries, not only because we consider them the most reputable and well-regarded in the country, but also to give you a choice of very different locations and geography.   If your desire is to be deep in the pristine African bush, Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary and Baboon Rescue & Rehab are for you. However, should you prefer to experience the beautiful winelands of the Cape and be close to the city lights of Cape Town, then The Lion Sanctuary is the perfect choice.

For excursions to see more of this beautiful country please go to our Excursions page.
