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.

Eseltjiesrus (literally ‘donkeys’ rest’) which provides a permanent refuge for abused, neglected and elderly donkeys, was officially opened to the public in 2007. Since then it has been providing an invaluable service, not only to the donkeys in its care, but also to the welfare of donkeys all over the country.
