Established and supported by Born Free, the Zambia Primate Project (ZPP) is one of Africa’s most established and successful primate release programmes. Its mission is to rescue and rehabilitate injured, orphaned and illegally held vervet monkeys and yellow baboons for release back to the wild. Volunteering opportunities of 1, 2 and 3 months are available in Zambia.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to play an active role in contributing to the successful running of the rehabilitation and release aspects of the project. Please note that this is a working conservation project so you will need to come prepared to roll up your sleeves and get involved with whatever activities the project is tasked with at the time of your visit. We offer volunteer opportunities at both the wildlife rehabilitation centre and out of our release camp deep in the bush.

To join our field team releasing and monitoring our rescued baboons and monkeys in Kafue National Park, or to assist with primate care and pre-release preparations at the rehabilitation centre please contact ZPP's Senior Technical Advisor Dr Cheryl Mvula on for further details and costs.
