Get in Touch!
Lion Encounter offers two options for people wanting to volunteer with us. For those with only a few days in Livingstone or Victoria Falls, why not volunteer with us for a few days as a Short Term Volunteer.
People wanting to get more involved and spend 2 to 6 weeks with us, living on site, have our long term volunteering option.
Victoria Falls Zimbabwe: Interact with the local children and assist at an orphanage, making a positive impact on Zimbabwe’s youth. You will also have the opportunity to help the community with their vegetable gardens, implemented with the aim of helping those living with HIV/AIDS. Classrooms are full to the brim with children eager to learn! Teachers are hardworking and dedicated but are under-resourced and overstretched. Assist them with teaching classes, marking work and lend a hand where needed. You will also be introduced to our Lion Rehabilitation Programme, and get the opportunity to walk with these amazing creatures! There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the wide range of adventure activities available around the Falls, which is one of Africa’s adrenaline capitals.
Livingstone Zambia: Contribute to the education and welfare of the local Zambian communities on the outskirts of Livingstone, an area rife with poverty and hardships; provide education and guidance to communities on greener living and the importance of wildlife and habitat protection; assist with a variety of community – benefitting projects such as life skill classes, HIV workshops, adult literacy, reading classes, and more; have a chance to walk young lion cubs, as part of the projects 4 stage rehabilitation and release into the wild program.
