I have been to Siyafunda Conservation as a volunteer twice now, in 2006 and 2008. I have since also volunteered at a few other projects around South Africa and Namibia. I have decided the only project I will go back to is Siyafunda because it works on research and conservation through research of wild animals. Much as it is very tempting to cuddle wild animals my experience of the other places is that there is always conflict of the animal's best care when places try to run as a business and an animal orphanage. Siyafunda conserve and teach you about wild animals in their natural setting.
Mike Job who I recommend highly as an experienced guide has really made this volunteer project work for the animals and for us who go there. I have recommended this project to various friends and their children and the only danger has been that most of them have not wanted to return home.
The team at Siyafunda are all really friendly and knowledgeable but also very professional. They ensure they look after you and your safety is important to them.
I follow Siyafunda regularly on Facebook and am grateful that there are good people working on saving our wildlife and although it is a tough battle they are doing whatever they can. They also work with local schools and support them which helps with education in the area of animals and of humans.
Great work team Siyafunda.
