Harnas Volunteer Project




More than 3 decades ago a vision and a dream were created by one man and one woman: Nick and Marieta van der Merwe. This vision became the ground stone of Harnas Wildlife Foundation: A place where people fight for the life of animals, with the main aim to protect and save those animals that could never speak for themselves in a world full of social problems and grievances that destroyed our respectful exposure to nature. Over the past 30 years lions, leopards, cheetahs and wild dogs to the smallest surricate among many more, have made Harnas their home after being neglected, abused or abandoned.


Are you between 18 and 40 years old and looking for an experience out of the ordinary? Are you tired of the predictable everyday life? Do you want to experience an untouched wilderness, where you can listen to silence and the lions roar? Then Harnas is the place for you. Here you have a once in a lifetime opportunity to take part in several aspects of wildlife conservation and community upliftment. You will be taken on adventures and taught how to read nature and its wildlife. You will conquer fears, the African savannah and experience the unique interaction and bonding with animals. You don't have to be physically strong, because you will learn how to feel strong. At Harnas we only live by three things, being an animal lover, constant change and to always expect the unexpected.


Harnas is an ever changing environment and there is always something exciting happening whether it's with the wildlife, research, daycare centre or medical projects. As a volunteer you will be involved in all the daily activities which will include food preparation, feeding, caretaking, cleaning and building of enclosures, waterholes and fences, fence patrol on horseback, game counting, animal studies, helping in the children's day care centre, research on rehabilitated animals, fear factor games, survivor games, dress up nights, bush walks as well as animal walks and star gazing.


Harnas gives you the opportunity to make a difference in all animal lives, and providing the animals that cannot be released with the best living conditions and care. We believe that all animals deserve a second chance and that they are entitled to be put back into their natural habitat where they can lead a free life without human disturbance. You can make a difference in animal conservation today by joining our volunteer project.
