Welcome to the Tshemba Foundation

We give medical professionals (local and abroad) the chance to give back to the community, help those in dire need of medical attention, and find their love of the art of medicine again.

Our medical volunteer programme is one of a kind as our luxurious lodge, situated in the bushveld on a game sanctuary, is a perfect doctor’s refuge. Medical specialists and their partners can stay at the five-star lodge free of charge on a self-catering basis, while they explore Hoedspruit and surroundings, and work at the Tintwalo Hospital and affiliated clinics.

Our Lodge

Imagine a luxurious five-star lodge where you can braai (barbeque) under a star-filled sky undisturbed by pollution and watch game having a drink while relaxing in the pool. You don’t have to imagine, just volunteer.

We know you have questions about what to expect, and who better to tell you about the Tshemba Foundation than the volunteers themselves (many of whom have returned for another visit).
