Volunteer At Knysna Elephant Park!


The Knsyna Elephant Park  is looking for people who are interested in joining them for an up close and personal experience assisting and supporting with their Elephant Program.

You would contribute to all aspects of elephant research, education, husbandry and conservation and be asked to get involved in all aspects of running the Knysna Elephant Park. This includes research, marketing, functions, maintenance, training, guiding, education and much, much more. We ask all our volunteers to be enthusiastic, dedicated, willing, able and keen to get involved with anything and have a genuine love of wildlife.

Elephants are weaned at about two and a half years so the feeding of baby elephants would depend on when volunteers are there and if there were milk-fed babies at the time. However, one of our primary objectives is offering care to orphaned calves and it’s never sure when new babies will arrive.

If working with, observing and assisting with the research of elephants is something that interests you, contact The Knysna Elephant Park at volunteer@knysnaelephantpark.co.za for more info.

This is an opportunity for a life altering experience, a chance to give back and I’m going to find a couple of weeks to have my life ‘elephant-altered’.
