Help to build a beautiful home for the wildest animals and leave your footprint in the wild.
You‘ll live in a solar-powered autonomous house 5 walk minutes away from the main house. There are two living rooms - one with a kitchen. The house has two floors with 3 cozy double bed rooms and two bathrooms in the house. As we are in the middle of the wild you will see free roaming animals, monkeys and birdlife during the day. In the evenings we spend most of the time under the South African stars, start a fire, enjoy a well-earned drink and tell each other stories of the day’s adventures. To share your stories, we have WIFI as well.

How is my Money used?
Volunteers pay a fee that covers the costs of their stay such as accommodation, transport, and meals. A small amount goes into the project to buy food for the animals, maintaining the oasis and other expenses for animals. In return, volunteers get to experience the African wildlife, discover the fascinating Hakuna Mipaka Oasis, learn a lot about animals and be a part of our mission as well as making many new friends. You will make experiences that will last a lifetime.
