Volunteer with elephants and an unforgettable experience with these peaceful, intelligent and majestic animals. Volunteer programs with elephants are available in Nepal, India, Thailand or as a part of Big Five Game conservation, in South Africa.
Camille Clauss Marietti recently has sent us her review about volunteering with the elephants at the Dawn Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa:
This summer I had an unforgettable experience in South Africa. Thank you Iko Poran for this exceptional travel! Sure, I will do it again! – Camille Clauss Marietti
Of coures, volunteering with the Big Five includes caring for leopards, lions, rhinozerozes and buffalos as well, as you can see on the bipcutre besides.
Volunteer on Elephant Care in Nepal Chitwan and have an exciting and joyful experience! Volunteers are helping with the feeding and socialization of the Elephants. While volunteering with the elephants, you will discover their gentle and befriending nature. Furthermore, you will find out about the social and cultural impact of these colossal creatures in Nepali communities. For example, you will be fascinated to watch the process of making Chitwan paper from elephant dung and then to see how these products are used around the town.
Volunteer in Thailand and join the centuries old tradition of training ‘domestic’ elephants by mahouts. Because of the dissolution of the logging industry, many elephants are taken to urban areas to beg for money and are often mistreated. Therefore, the volunteer project offers a responsible and sustainable alternative for the elephants.
