This Is The Place For You

The main project of the Wildlife Action Group is the "Thuma Forest Reserve Eco-system Rehabilitation Project".

When considering volunteering for a project it is very important to research not only the project but also the country you will be living in. You should come with an open mind and be prepared to become involved in every aspect of the project. The more you become involved in the more you get out of it.

Volunteering in Africa

Volunteering can be a life changing experience. It challenges not only your physical strength but also your mental ability.


There is a lot of work involved in managing a Reserve. Wildlife Action Group has been running a volunteer programme from the beginning and we have been very lucky to have fantastic volunteers over the years to assist us. Volunteers participating in the programme all have a common ambition: to see, feel, hear and smell the African bush, to develop a practical knowledge of wildlife and life in the bush and to have a lasting positive impact on the environment.

We are always looking for volunteers to help us with our day to day work as well as new projects that are always in progress. WAG volunteers come from various back grounds such as - animal behaviourist, builders, students, mechanics, agriculture, musicians, flight attendants, office worker - there are no particular criteria.

If you love nature, the great outdoors and hard work, then this is the place for you.

We offer short-term placements of longer-term internships. Find out more about our Volunteer Programme, including volunteering costs and payment options, requirements, daily activities and camp conditions.

We are very thankful for the support of our generous donors and partners in our continuous effort to protect Malawi’s forest and wildlife for future generations. THANK YOU!
