The Wildlife Centre rescues around 100 animals a year, and is currently home to almost 200, including vervet and blue monkeys, baboons, servals, antelope and a variety of reptiles and birds.  Volunteers are critical to the rescue and rehabilitation of the animals at the Centre and assignments are carefully matched to your skills. They also offer vet externships, medical courses and research placements.


Located in the heart of Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe Wildlife Centre welcomes about 35,000 visitors each year. The Centre is located in a 180-acre protected nature reserve which is home to a beautiful forest and river as well as wild populations of birds, monkeys, duikers, bush pigs and even hyenas. Visitor attractions include a network of walking trails, an on-site cafe and gift shop, an arboretum and an education centre.
