Help Release Cheetahs Into The Protected Wild

Live Your Conservation Dream! 

Watch our Volunteer & Internship Video!

As a volunteer or intern, you’ll have plenty of time during the day to form special bonds with our animals, and our volunteers often comment on how rewarding it is when you take the time to sit next to an enclosure and build a really strong bond with an animal!

If you don’t speak English fluently, don’t worry! We have volunteers from all over the world, coming to Cheetah Experience and sharing our passion and commitment to making a difference for conservation in South Africa.

There’s plenty of fun social activities to do with volunteers and staff after a busy day, with local bars and restaurants only a short drive away.

You can help build fun enrichment objects for our animals to keep them happy and healthy throughout the day, and you might have the chance to play soccer with some of our cheetahs, and join our staff in taking some of our cheetahs and caracals on enrichment walks!


You might even have the opportunity to spend a couple of nights in our ‘Lionhouse’, which overlooks our male lion’s enclosures. Many volunteers have remarked that waking up to the roar of a lion was one of the highlights of their visit!

We also work closely with nearby Emoya Game Reserve, a reserve that prides itself in the conservation and preservation of it’s wildlife.


Emoya offers volunteers the opportunity to go on a gamedrive and observe their beautiful species up close, even getting within metres of Rhinos, Giraffe and Antelope.

So whether you’re on university break, on a year long journey of self discovery,

or just in need of a serious break from your job,

we have a volunteer program to suit you!
