It was a really nice and interesting outing. It was also inspiring to see a group of mostly volunteers so committed to helping monkeys in need. Worth a visit or even a day of volunteering if you have the time and inclination.
We forgot to make a reservation , but just give it a try because we were disappointed by the rest of Tzaneen.
We were lucky, there was a family that did not show up and we took there place.
A fantastic guide, all are volunteers...More
I have been fortunate to spend some time at the Vervet Monkey Foundation..The staff and volunteers are single minded in their mission to rescue, rehabilitate and release any monkeys that are brought to the foundation
Their knowledge, integrity, and team dynamic make for an excellent...More

I volunteered here for three months. I actually extended my stay from three weeks!
There really isn't enough space to describe fully the incredible experience but I'll try.
Vervet Monkeys are lovely and this foundation works so hard to give these monkeys a natural life,...More
I volunteered with the Vervet Monkey Foundation (VMF) for four months. It was a fantastic experience from start to finish.
It is very rewarding being able to work with vervets who are fascinating primates, and there are plenty of opportunities to learn about them through...More
My first volunteer experience was with VMF at 62 & loved it. Have done others too & about to try C.A.R.E. at the end of the year...now 70. Yes most of the volunteers are young, but the main thing you have in common is a love... More
My first volunteer experience was with VMF at 62 & loved it. Have done others too & about to try C.A.R.E. at the end of the year...now 70.

Go for it!!! Can't wait for my next one....P.S. go for at least 4 weeks!
