Rainfer's work involves many fundamental aspects such as conservation, rehabilitation and education, and we have different departments to develop all the work. 

Given the conditions (physical and / or psychological) in which some of the primates arrive, the volunteer must be emotionally mature, patient and positive and make sure that he wants to help these rescued primates in order to recover and that he does not seek to humanize them (this is forbidden to touch primates). 
It also requires the ability to work both as a team and alone as daily tasks may need it and a specific availability according to the selected program. It is not necessary to have prior knowledge in the world of primatology.

An amazing project with amazing staff

average rating is 5 out of 5

I work as a travel agent, bringing volunteers to DAKTARI and other projects around the world. After helping a lot of volunteers fulfill their dreams of coming to South Africa, I managed to arrange 2 weeks to spend at the project. What a wonderful time I had starting with the staff who are so friendly and polite, the animals being taken care of as if they were family and the amazing food that was prepared catering to each of the volunteers individual needs. I can only say that if you are looking for an unique and quality experience involving a well thought out educational program and the preservation of native animal species, this is the one for you.
