VOLUNTEER IN AFRICA
Let us awaken the humanitarian in you!
Using your skills to help others or playing a role in wildlife research or conservation can be very rewarding, plus you’ll take home loads of new skills, knowledge and practical work experience. Taking part in a volunteering program abroad can add immense value to your resume and make you infinitely more employable.
The benefits of volunteering in Africa are infinite and we’re very proud of the remarkable things our volunteers have achieved so far and the wonderful relationships we’ve fostered with local community members, leaders and other organisations. Volunteering is also a great way to meet people, especially if you're travelling solo, as you will usually be a part of a larger group during activities on the volunteer projects.
The uniqueness of the experiences can help you form lasting and meaningful friendships with fellow volunteers from a multitude of ethnic backgrounds and it’s an opportunity to learn about different cultures from all over the world. Also becoming more popular is the option of volunteering with your family or group of friends, which can be a great bonding or team building experience. So if you want to know how to volunteer in Africa, the answer's easy - join our journey, bring your passion, your skills and your energy and let's do something amazing, together.
“This is not a five star, resort holiday. Travelers who want much more than the tourist experience of South Africa and who are willing to live and work, as part of a community, will find themselves wishing they had more time at the project and wondering how they can organize to return.” Ann Gagan, volunteer on our South Africa Over 30s Community Project.
