Close up Encounters With Your Favourite Animals

We need volunteers from all sorts of different skills backgrounds to help us achieve greater standards of animal welfare at a Safari Park near Kanchanaburi.

Participating in our Thailand Volunteer Program at the Safari Park Open Zoo is an immensely rewarding experience. You will work hard but you will also have the opportunity for close, personal interactions with our animals. No two days are the same, but a volunteer could expect a day at the park to include feeding bottle feeding leopard cubs, cleaning cages and checking for storm damage, designing and building enclosures, help take care of the dogs and exercising and washing a lion cub.
