Kenya Wildlife Volunteer Program

Last Updated: June 9, 2022

Kenya Wildlife Volunteer Program

Kenya is a fantastic place to visit, with Mount Kenya standing over a breathtaking picture of wooded hills, patchwork farms, and woodland savanna. It is lapped by the Indian Ocean and straddles the equator. Large animal herds dotted the vast savannas. Mountains with snow-capped summits in the equatorial region. Traditional peoples are the essence and color of the globe. Kenya is home to mountains, deserts, tribal cultures, and beaches. It's also known for its national parks, which are home to a diverse range of animals. Kenya's cornerstone is tourism, but the nation also has a robust educational system, as well as an independent judiciary and press.

Our primary goal is to provide support to community-based organizations by outsourcing and placing overseas volunteer professionals in order to enhance the lives of our animals and people while also contributing to the growth of our country. We value the diverse talents and skills that each volunteer possesses, and we encourage those who are able to provide such service as a volunteer to come to Kenya and make a difference in the lives of underprivileged community members in the area of the national park, as well as in general wildlife conservation in Kenya.

Volunteer’s Roles Responsibilities and Activities

We strive extremely hard to protect wildlife since it is both a source of beauty and money for our country. It attracts volunteers and travel groups from all over the world. We welcome visitors from all around the world to come and see our beautiful country. Volunteers collaborate closely with wildlife rangers. At the national park, volunteers assist professional rangers in removing animals from traps. Poachers from the local community prey on animals for meat and elephants for their husks. Volunteers assist in the treatment of ill and injured wildlife. Volunteers assist with community engagement and raising community understanding about the need of animal conservation. Volunteers and rangers assist pregnant creatures such as elephants in carrying them and placing them in secure areas for birth.

Arrival and Orientation

Our team will meet you at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and transport you to your community house or host family. You have the rest of the day free to relax and enjoy Kenya's warmth. You will have a formal meeting with your coordinators and other group members. You will learn more about Kenya and your program at orientation. You will fly to Kenya later in your holiday, a country known for its history and generosity.

Accommodation

The shared house can accommodate 10 to 15 people. There is hostel-style group housing available, with gender-specific dormitory rooms. Group leaders have their own sleeping quarters. Wi-Fi is available, as well as eating and living facilities and indoor showers. Depending on the size of the group, host families may also be assigned. Our host families have been thoroughly vetted, have been a part of our program for many years, and come highly recommended by previous participants. Upgraded accommodations are available upon request.

Free Time Travel Activities

Nairobi, Kenya's capital, is home to a diverse population from several ethnicities. Kenya is home to 42 tribes that all speak the same ethnic languages. Nairobi is a hub for many things, and people from 42 tribes go there to look for jobs, conduct business, and get academic degrees, among other things. Nairobi's top attractions will appeal to both international and domestic visitors. In the meantime, you may unwind and explore Kenya. If this is your last day in the program, our staff will help you make future arrangements. Those who remain committed to the program will be awarded a two-day weekend to relax. Placements that persist more than a week are treated similarly.
