Volunteer programme testimonials

Nothing tells you about a programme as well as hearing it straight from the horses mouth! Have a read of our latest volunteer testimonials.

"Being able to stay here and in some small way give a little bit back to benefit the wildlife and community, has been a privilege. All the people I have met have been so welcoming and happy, despite in some cases having so little. There was nothing I didn’t enjoy doing, even hard physical jobs, because it was always explained clearly how it would benefit the wildlife.

Having such close encounters with the animals has been a highlight for me which I will remember for the rest of my life."

"Highly recommended! I have volunteered at Imire from 02 September-14 September 2019 and can’t speak highly enough about the amazing work that all the staff do for wildlife conservation. Getting up close and personal to the majestic elephants and rhinos in their natural environment and assisting with their care was an incredible experience that I will never forget. You will not be disappointed by what Imire has to offer, the volunteer program is well coordinated .I have so much love and respect for all the staff at Imire and hope to volunteer again some time in the near future."

Dorota, UK, September 2019

"We enjoyed helping fix the road, building a bridge, making a gate, cleaning the rhino and elephant enclosures, and trying to capture the fish to relocate them. I wish we were able to help more! My favourites were working with Mac and watching the baby black rhino with his mother. The community visit to hilda’s home to learn about Shona culture was fun and fascinating, as was the visit to the caves. We had an amazing time and learned so much."
