There are usually two application deadlines per year, around February and October. The exact deadlines will be published here. When there are additional application deadlines, they will be advertised here as well.
Applications can also be submitted early, during the year, they will be evaluated at the next application deadline. If there are early openings these applications will also be considered. Interviews will take place shortly after the application deadline via video Skype. Decisions about positions will be made later that month. Accepted volunteers will have a period of several weeks to months to apply for a South African VISA before their start date.

The cover letter must state whether you would be able to stay for the full 12 months; that you have a driving licence and your driving experience; and when your first possible start date is; and, of course, it should list your relevant experience and motivation for joining the KMP.
Send this PDF document to: meerkat . volunteers @ gmail . com (please remove all spaces from the email address, this is to prevent automated spam emails) with ‘volunteer application’ as the email subject.
