Welcome to Vervet Monkey Foundation

The Vervet Monkey Foundation (VMF) is a non-profit organization (#020 694 NPO) established in 1993. Our centre is based in Tzaneen in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. We rehabilitate and provide sanctuary to over 600 primates, orphaned, injured, abused, ex-laboratory or unwanted pets.

About us

Volunteering Opportunity

100% of your contribution will go straight in to our operating budget helping us build new enclosures, purchase medicines and do more for the monkeys in our care.

Support our mission

The VMF is not funded by the government and therefore relies entirely on contributions from the public and volunteers. Donations are vital to help us not only provide sanctuary to orphaned vervet monkeys, but in also helping us protect the future of this unique primate.


The Vervet Forest

The film documents the monkeys’ arrival as helpless infants at the Vervet Monkey Foundation, following their growth into intelligent, playful juveniles until they are adopted by foster mother monkeys and integrated into one of the foundation’s existing troops.
