Live Your Conservation Dream!
Help Release Cheetahs Into The Protected Wild
Founded to help to prevent the further decline of the cheetah population, our conservation efforts primarily focus on the re-introduction of captive bread cheetahs into the protected wild and actively and financially supporting other ethical and sustainable initiatives and programmes aimed at the same objectives in order to secure a viable cheetah metapopulation in South Africa.
From September 2018 onwards, we will release several cheetahs that have been earmarked for rewilding onto Private Game Reserves in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get involved in this year’s exciting Release Programme! You will work alongside our staff and get hands-on experience being part of our historic “Cheetah Reintroduction”, and will assist in accompanying the cheetahs to the reserve, help with their settling in during boma periods or later monitoring their movements.
Interested volunteers should be available for at least a 3 week period. The field of work you will be involved in can require a lot of driving, so volunteers should ideally hold an international drivers license.
Positions will fill up quickly, so please email here for more information.
Cheetah Experience Ashia Offers
Ever wanted to experience the Karoo and the Cape?
Simply combine these two unique places in your volunteering time!
We offer programmes for local and international volunteers, both on the farm near Cape Town and in Bloemfontein.
If you don’t speak English fluently, don’t worry! We have volunteers from all over the world, sharing our dream at Cheetah Experience Ashia and Bloemfontein. You’ll work alongside our family of experienced and knowledgeable staff. This gives you an amazing opportunity to have hands on experience with our cheetahs – something you will cherish for the rest of your life. As a volunteer at Cheetah Experience Ashia, you’ll be staying in our cottages on the farm. Along with your fellow volunteers and staff, you can braai (Afrikaans for ‘barbeque’) or relax in peace with a cup of tea. Enjoy overlooking the picturesque Drakenstein mountains – Cheetah Experience Ashia really will be a home away from home.
There are plenty of fun activities to reward yourself with after a productive day. With Paarl and Stellenbosch just a short drive away, visit bars and restaurants. Sit with your feet cooling in our dam watching the sunset. You’ll get two days off a week to explore the area as you wish! Go on local wine tours, hike around the nearby mountain ranges, relax at the beach, and explore the best city in the world.
Whether you are on university break, a year long journey of self-discovery, or just in need of a change – we have a volunteer programme to suit you.
Unfortunately all volunteers must be over the age of 18 years.
