Buffelsdrift Volunteer Programme, Oudtshoorn

The animals at Buffelsdrift come in need or rescue, rehabilitation and sometimes permanent captive care. The Wildlife Conservation volunteers come from all backgrounds, nationalities and with varied familiarity with animals and wildlife, from absolutely no experience to those with a professional background in veterinary or conservation science. The volunteers do have in common a love of wildlife and a passion for aiding in the conservation and care of Africa’s diverse species.
