Incredible destinations, rewarding volunteer experiences, exciting excursions - one big trip! At African Impact, we are proud to now offer travelers an alternative to the solo volunteer experience and allow our volunteers to share this adventure with one another while also having the chance to see more of the continent and experience everything that makes Africa so great. The people. The culture. The landscapes. The wildlife. The adventure. One trip of a lifetime!
We set out to find a way to combine authentic, impactful volunteer experiences with incredible sightseeing opportunities that can be enjoyed with other like-minded travelers from around the world. With these ideals in mind, our new Group Volunteering Tours were born. Volunteering in Africa allows you to experience a unique and authentic cultural exchange, explore a new country and gain a new perspective on life. There is power in volunteering and we’ve seen the amazing things volunteers can achieve. We also understand that stepping onto that plane all alone, not knowing what is waiting for you on the other side, can be a daunting prospect. Join our group volunteering tour and set your mind at ease. Be prepared to let Africa change your life!
