  • I was a volunteer here from Feb 27th, 2029 to May 26th, 2019 and it was a blast. I encourage anyone to take a tour of the VMF if you are in the area of Tzaneen, South Africa. I don’t know what the...  more »
  • This was a unique experience. The guides walked us through the grounds and talked us through all the wonderful work that is being done to preserve the little creatures. I trust that much more support....  more »

  • Fantastic place to volunteer and help Vervet monkeys. All food Vegan. Great respect for all animal life. Over 500 monkeys kept in large enclosures enabling them to be in troops as in the wild. Orphaned baby monkeys integrated into troops using foster monkeys to give them a family unit. Injured monkeys treated and returned to own troops in the wild. Great on the job training.
  • If anyone wants to experience an amazing volunteering time in South Africa then I can highly recommend the Vervet Monkey Foundation. It's a wonderful place, in the middle of nature, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You are surrounded by vervet monkeys, free living ones and the ones that are living in huge enclosures. The opportunity you get to work with the monkeys, in a big variety of tasks, is very rewarding. I've spent quite some time at the foundation, from 3 weeks to almost 3 years, and if I only could I would go back! I sure can say.. GO FOR IT!
  • Great place to volunteer and help the monkeys, not open to the general public for tours.
  • Its an amazing place, living surrounded by vervet monkeys, away from the city and town, beautiful surroundings and the opportunity to experience working with beautiful monkeys. The sanctuary rescues and rehabilitates monkeys that would otherwise not survive, to see an orphan baby adopted by a troop mum and be raised in a troop not by people is wonderful. It is a low cost volunteering opportunity for all, if you want to support them from your home you can donate and help their work. I spent a year there and had the opportunity to see these babies introduced into troops. I would highly recommend their volunteer program.
  • Good job! They need more money
