Jemu Expeditions Volunteer Programme

On the conservation and safari adventure of a lifetime!

Our volunteer programme is a great opportunity for anyone seeking a more meaningful travel experience to participate in Kenyan conservation. Volunteering is a unique and rewarding way to discover Kenya and its wildlife, while also helping to preserve our planet.

About the Programme

Our volunteer programmes comply with the standards and set guidelines from our associate partners; In this case The Wildlife Foundation and Olpejeta Conservancy. It is therefore keen to note that rules and regulations subject to their volunteer guidelines apply.

Come let's make a difference!

With its extraordinarily diverse landscapes, abundant wildlife and snow-capped peaks, Kenya is a dream destination for wildlife enthusiasts. More than 8% of its land area is formally protected and it is vital for the country’s economy to both support the tourism industry and focus our efforts on protecting threatened endemic species.

Our volunteer programme is a great opportunity for anyone seeking a more meaningful travel experience to participate in Kenyan conservation. Volunteering is a unique and rewarding way to discover Kenya and its wildlife, while also helping to preserve our planet.

On this 15-day multi-destination expedition, you will experience Kenya like no one else has before through hands-on activities with respected conservation projects. You will have the opportunity to contribute to habitat restoration, track wild animals, study their behavior, enjoy close encounters with rhinos and get an unfiltered look into the lives of the rangers protecting them.

At Jemu Expeditions, we know that finding a volunteer programme can be overwhelming: our project partners are renowned for their significant contribution to conservation and will not only ensure that your work is sustainable and meaningful but also that you achieve your own personal goals.

This conservation-focused journey will open your mind, cultivate compassion and change the way you see wildlife conservation. We look forward to welcoming you to our programme.
