Wild Cat Centre - Kimberley

Project Highlights

You will be able to listen to the sounds of cats calling throughout the night
Not only will you be privileged to work with these beautiful cats, but your accommodation is also situated in close proximity to all of the cat enclosures.
You will be accompanied by other people who are very passionate about animals.
You will have the opportunity to work face to face, with big cats and other wildlife. Learn and experience how each animal behaves, reacts and what their characters are like.

Welcome Orientation

Your project starts with a 2-day orientation in Johannesburg. Arrive in Joburg or Jozi, as it is known locally, and get shown around by people who know the city well. The orientation is excellent for first-time visitors to find their feet the local way and meet other volunteers on your project.

Day 1
You will be picked up from the airport and taken to the hostel. Here you will be given a chance to settle down before meeting your volunteer representative. You will be given a briefing on your volunteer program and then meet other travellers and volunteers for a welcome dinner.

Day 2
After breakfast you will be collected from the hostel and shown around the sites of Johannesburg like a local. We will start off with a visits to Soweto, South Africa’s biggest Township here you will have the opportunity to take some photos at the iconic Orlando Towers and Soccer City, home of the World Cup Final. We then head to a local food market where you can have a light lunch, shop for local arts and crafts and listen to some live music. After lunch we head to Constitution Hill, home of our South African Democracy and an integral part of our history. We then end the tour with a walk through the park at Zoo Lake, a pleasant end to the day. Please note that the tour itinerary is flexible and may change according to the group’s interests for the day. This is your personal tour of our lovely city with our local guide to show you the best sites and places.

Day 3
After breakfast we will either take you directly to your project site, shuttle terminal or airport.

About Your Location

Our centre is located in the well-known Free State province, which borders the Northern Cape. The predator farm is situated only 30 km from the historical town of Kimberley, on the National Road (the N8). The farm is home to an abundance of animals; we are a home to 42 predators and 2 monkeys - the predators include: 4 cheetahs, 20 lions, 4 caracals, 2 servals, 1 African wild cat, 2 black-backed jackals and 9 bat-eared foxes. These animals are taken in to be cared for because of various reasons; some cannot live in the wild on their own if they are sick or were abandoned, and many are rescued from unethical processes like canned hunting and breeding for tourism purposes. When it is possible, we strive to release our animals back into the wild where they can live freely without any human interaction.

The centre was founded in 2010 by the Burger family when Chriszanne and Nicol Burger adopted 2 animals from a project where they previously work. These animals were moved to the centre and cared for by the Burger family. This action was the foundation for the continued conservation and rehabilitation work that takes place at the centre. Around this time, the Burger family learned about Canned Hunting (a method of hunting in which an animal is kept in a confined area-such as a fenced enclosure-to vastly increase the likelihood of the hunter obtaining a kill for trophy purposes), which sparked the desire to work towards the eradication of this process and rescue African cats from hazardous environments.

We are currently busy expanding the enclosures on the farm. These enclosures will be geared towards mimicking a natural area for play and roaming. Each enclosure will accommodate the specific species’ needs and consist of tree logs, a climbing area, and adequate space to roam. The centre currently has over 1000 hectares of pure Free State farmland available to expand the project and ensure the well-being of the animals in our care. We do not intend to breed with our lions or to buy in any more cubs in the future.

Weekly Schedule & Activities

You will be working 6 days a week with the 7th being your day off to do what you would like.

You will spend time getting to know the animals and other volunteers/staff personally. Feeding the cats will for sure be a highlight as you learn how, what and when the cats eat. There will always be the sense of excitement in the air as you help build new enclosures, you will know that you are helping an animal in dire need for safety. With the knowledge and experience you gain, you will be able to help on tours and educate others.

- An early wake-up at 07:00
- Breakfast with the team
- Discussion of daily events and duties
- During the course of the day you can be involved in tours, preparing food, working in the enclosures, nursing any sick animals etc.
- Lunch hour
- Free time to do your laundry, taking a nap, spending time with other volunteers, or helping in the preparation of an evening function
- Gather around for dinner which will be a nice warm meal. You can also prepare your own food if you wish.
- Just before bedtime, a quick check-in on the cats making sure everyone is settled
- Then well-deserved sleep

Please note that this routine is kept as best as possible, however, it is subject to change since working with animals sometimes requires a flexible schedule.

Once a week there is an optional social trip where volunteers are able to go to the nearby town for dinner (dinner at own expense).

Supervision & Safety Management

As the nature of the work varies, volunteers are placed under the supervision of a team leader to ensure everything runs well and give guidance where necessary. With every new arrival we also have a safety and orientation briefing where we discuss issues such as general safety in South Africa for example, what to do in the settlements, where not to go, what to do in case of an emergency, sea currents, HIV AIDS and crime. We offer all our volunteers 24/7 support and assistance.

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.

Accommodatie

Your accommodation is in a volunteer house including its own kitchen facilities, shared bathroom and bedrooms. The rooms are mixed dormitories and sleep 2 to 8 people per room. You can request a male or female dormitory in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you. All linen are provided. The volunteer house is roughly 20m away from the main house, and is safe and secure. A swimming pool is available. Volunteers are expected to keep their rooms and personal belongings tidy at all times and participate in any chores as required for the cleanliness and operation of the shared facilities.

Laundry is free but you must provide your own detergent.

There is no Wi-Fi at this project due to the poor reception. Please make sure you purchase a South African SIM card and load data on it while you are at your orientation in Johannesburg.

Lokaal vervoer
