Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary Volunteers


Volunteer with Lions

Help to care for the welfare of animals that have been orphaned or injured. The centre aims to operate as a soft release area for animals that have been rehabilitated successfully from the Noah’s Ark project, 300 kilometres East of Windhoek.

The sanctuary is based just 38km East of Windhoek in Namibia and 15km from the International airport on a 3200ha site. In spite of being only a 35 minute drive from Windhoek, there is a definite sense of remoteness to the project location. The area is a natural savannah paradise with riverine vegetation, lush grass plains and magnificent mountain views.
