Volunteer or do a tour if you don't have the time :)
Spent 6 months at the Vervet Monkey Foundation in Limpopo as an intern and I can't wait to come back... 💕🐒

I loved working with the monkeys. Especially their foster-mum program for orphaned babies and integration of ex-pet monkeys into established monkey troops is so rewarding. I loved how much I learned here on a daily basis!
The work does get very stressful and hard at times, but it's all worth it when you see those cheeky little monkeys bouncing around.

Apart from the work itself, I loved life in the bush. There's something beyond beautiful about the simplicity of living in a wooden cabin surrounded by nature and wildlife.
Everything is centered around nature and sustainability - from their composting toilets (can't waste precious water by flushing!) to the amazing vegan food.

The team is amazing and very dedicated to their work. I'm grateful to have made friends for life at this place. ❤️

Definitely recommend volunteering here - or at least to go on a very educational short tour. 😇

I was a Volunteer...
2019年2月 • 單獨旅行
I was a volunteer here from Feb 27th, 2029 to May 26th, 2019 and it was a blast. I encourage anyone to take a tour of the VMF if you are in the area of Tzaneen, South Africa.

I don’t know what the tour is like, but it would be worth looking into. All I can say it was an experience of a lifetime. At the same time, it’s sad they have to exist due to man being so cruel.

The first photo is me eating a fresh Guava off a tree near what we called The River. Second photo is of Rocio grooming me. She had 3 attempts to socialize with other Vervet Monkeys and failed. The third photo is of Armies who was hit by a car when he was younger. Last photo is of a Bandit Troop Vervet that roams the property.

Also Tzaneen has some wonderful places to eat at.

Seniors' trip to Magoebaskloof July 2018
2018年7月 • 夫妻情侶
This was a unique experience. The guides walked us through the grounds and talked us through all the wonderful work that is being done to preserve the little creatures. I trust that much more support and funding will be available to continue with this excellent work.

Good work and interesting
It was a really nice and interesting outing. It was also inspiring to see a group of mostly volunteers so committed to helping monkeys in need. Worth a visit or even a day of volunteering if you have the time and inclination.

Help de vervet monkey's !!
2017年9月 • 夫妻情侶
Een geweldig team van vooral vrijwilligers runt deze opvang, die zich hoofdzakelijk richt op vervet apen. Het is allesbehalve commercieel en het gaat écht om de apen!!

Bij aankomst (na een onverharde weg van ca. 4 km) moesten we even kijken waar we beland waren aangezien de opvang erg afgelegen ligt. De eerste indruk was echter geheel onterecht en het werk dat hier verricht wordt is top! Helaas is er vooralsnog geen programma dat er op gericht is de apen weer terug in de natuur te kunnen plaatsen maar dat heeft vooral te maken met het ontbreken van geld.

Wij hebben de opvang bezocht vanuit Tzaneen richting Hoedspruit en inclusief het rijden op het onverharde pad zijn we ca. 1,5 uur bezig geweest. Een aanrader om eens te bezoeken als je in de buurt bent en voor de prijs (100 rand per persoon) hoef je het niet te laten! Volgens ons ook als gezin met kinderen te bezoeken.

Het zou mooi zijn als de opvang via reclame en donaties in de toekomst nog meer voor de apen kan betekenen en deze apen wellicht toch ooit terug kunnen naar de vrije natuur.

Must visit ! Best thing to do in winter
2017年7月 • 家庭式
We forgot to make a reservation , but just give it a try because we were disappointed by the rest of Tzaneen.
We were lucky, there was a family that did not show up and we took there place.
A fantastic guide, all are volunteers from all over the world ! Young students all.
There are only the local monkeys so do not expect a big diversity.
The stories of animal behavier and daily habits were realy great !
The animals are treated with respect , they stay wild.
Do not expect monkey trics and things !
This is a hospital/sanctuary in the positve meaning !

An outstanding volunteer programme and best foundation!
2017年4月 • 單獨旅行
I have been fortunate to spend some time at the Vervet Monkey Foundation..The staff and volunteers are single minded in their mission to rescue, rehabilitate and release any monkeys that are brought to the foundation

Their knowledge, integrity, and team dynamic make for an excellent recipe for success. Monkeys come first. There is no question about it. The volunteers are all incredible and come from all over the globe. Many .. in fact, most return time after time to continue the work they have become so passionate about.

If you are looking for a volunteer programme that makes a difference to the planet, in surroundings that are conducive to success.. then this is the place for you.

You will never be disappointed, saddened sometimes by mans cruelty to animals, but the team there are family, and you will be welcomed with open arms. It is certainly not a holiday camp, work is vital to keep it going.

A well run programme with happy monkeys
2016年12月 • 家庭式
The experience we had was amazing. The monkeys are well kept and cared for in natural, very large enclosures. The tour guide could answer our questions and every member of the team we walked past, welcomed us and were happy to share information about the programme. Will definitely visit again!

Not humanizing the monkeys, but actually saving them and finding wild adoptive mothers for the orphans. After seeing other places, this is the one I can believe in. All extremely sensible people. Volunteers come to work and help, not play with monkeys that later ill not know what to do.
