Namibia is a country of extreme and often overwhelming beauty, with countless rolling expanses of breath-taking desert and grassland and an incredible array of flora and fauna. The perfect place then in which to join an extensive range of Namibia Wildlife Conservation Volunteer opportunities.
As a destination, Namibia is renowned for its diverse and fascinating wildlife, boasting many populations of the African continent's most endangered species, including desert elephants and the critically endangered black rhino. Namibia is also home to the incredible Fish River canyon, Etosha National park and salt pan and the mesmerising Sossusvlei - the highest collection of sand dunes found anywhere on earth. What's more, Namibia is renowned as having the most sunshine days per year for any country on earth – perfect for those sun worshippers amongst you! The Namibia Animal Sanctuary volunteer projects found here offer you the chance to get up close and personal to some of the country's most iconic species of wildlife and help in their rehabilitation and eventual release. This is the perfect destination in which to get involved with a whole host of Namibian Conservation Projects!
