Volunteer Costs

The minimum stay requirement is two weeks and is charged at $375 per week up to 12 weeks. Thereafter a reduced fee of $300 per week is applicable for the additional period of your stay.
If you stay for 6 months then you will contribute $300 per week for your whole duration.

The volunteer fee covers all of your accommodation requirements including:
• A bed in a single-sex four-bed dormitory
• Three meals a day, two of which are prepared by our cook
• Housekeeping
• Laundry
• Airport transfers for Ukunda Airstrip ONLY. All tranfers for Mombasa can be arranged at an additional cost of KES3,500 one-way
• Drinking water
• WiFi
• Security
• Training for your role and a much needed financial contribution for the monkeys and Colobus Conservation programs.

A non-refundable deposit of $250 is required within one week after the application is approved and dates confirmed. Should a deposit payment not be received within this timeframe then your volunteer placement is automatically cancelled. Payment of a deposit allows us to block dates for your placement and accommodation and is non-refundable.

For volunteers who opt to stay offsite, and come for work every day, they are required to pay a deposit of 50% of the total fee contribution within two weeks after application approval and dates confirmed. If payment is not received within this timeframe this will result in an automatic cancellation.
