Volunteering at Camp Mbube: Bringing worlds closer together
Volunteering at Camp Mbube is a wonderful experience for people who want to spend their holidays making a difference. Volunteers—ranging in age from 19 to 90 years old—come from all walks of life and from all corners of the world. They come with a strong desire to make a difference in the world; they leave with friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
Who would most benefit most from a volunteering experience at Tsau Conservancy? Someone who yearns to see more of the world than their back yard. Anyone with a true sense of adventure (living in the African bush is not for everyone!) and who has a flexible and open-minded spirit. Finally, someone who truly wants to make a difference in the world.
Each volunteer experience is unique, and much depends on the needs of the Trust, the White Lions, and the cultural centers and schools at the time of your visit. However, we will work with you to help create an experience that best suits your interests, skills, and experience.
