Volunteering, Outreach and Education Programs and more


Volunteer at one of the largest and most successful wildlife rehabilitation and release centers in Africa! Volunteers on this project work with a range of animals, anything from monkeys to lions. Experience beautiful Zimbabwe while making a positive impact on the delicate African ecosystem. No experience is needed to work with the animals as all the training will be provided. All we ask is that volunteers are enthusiastic and dedicated to working with animals. Learn more about Volunteering →

Connecting Communities

Chipangali helps conserve Zimbabwe’s wildlife by connecting communities – especially children – to their natural heritage. Children are the future of Africa and hence it is important to inculcate in them a love and respect for their wonderful natural heritage. No other continent is as rich in wildlife as Africa from our mighty carnivores, to the many antelopes, to the majestic elephants to the reptiles and the many birds of prey that thrive here. By protecting our Wildlife, we bring in millions of tourists who visit our national parks on safari, buy souvenirs that support our local communities and spend money on dining and hotels.

Outreach efforts include:

  • Operating the Diana Princess of Wales Children’s Education Center at the Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage.
  • Leading visits to the Wildlife Orphanage where children and visitors can observe and learn about many species not easily seen in the wild.
  • Highlighting the need for wildlife conservation and management through partnerships with local universities.
  • Giving Zimbabwean children access to environmental education through Chipangali’s EPIC Kids Program (Environmental Programs Involving Children). Learn more about the EPIC Kids Program →


With support from the Oregon Zoo, the Oregon Zoo Future for Wildlife program and other AZA-accredited zoos, the Chipangali Carnivore Research Institute works to better understand and manage natural ecosystems and biodiversity in Zimbabwe through research and monitoring.
