Baby vervet monkeys must learn how to feed. They can cry for their mother for a couple of days when they first arrive until they have stabilised.
Students can help with the rehabilitation process – introducing new animals to enclosures and the release of animals at release sites.
Priority is given to Vet students doing their EMS and they can assist the vet with checking the new arrivals, injuries, sickness etc.
The centre has a vet clinic with an anaesthetic machine and vet students can keep the clinic organized and well stocked.
... Kambuku the leopard blue monkeys ...
... Bella, the lioness Yoda, the bush baby...
and many more.
Students will have 1 day off a week although they will need to be flexible due to unforeseen emergencies.
In their free time it’s possible to go canoeing or lake diving or even on safari (at students’ costs).
The house has mixed dorm-style accommodation with electricity, kitchen, lounge area, bathroom and hot showers.
Volunteers have a food allowance to buy and prepare their own food. There are also many good restaurants just a short drive away.
