During your African Impact volunteer experience in Africa you will be based in the Anosy region of Madagascar, a beautiful and remote part in the south eastern region of the country. You will be placed in the stunning coastal town of Fort Dauphin, or in a rural village. Camping with an international group of volunteers, you will very quickly become like a small family unit, and will work hard and have loads of fun together, sharing the opportunity to explore the surrounding landscape.
Tents and basic camping facilities are provided. When in Fort Dauphin, you will camp at the stunning lake-side site of Lanirano, which is fully equipped with flush toilets and showers as well as electricity for charging cameras, iPods, mobile phones and the like. Laundry services are also available locally. Whilst working at the project sites, the facilities will be more basic but there are always latrines and private washing amenities available.
A resident cook travels with the team and is responsible for preparing meals for you each day. Food is simple, but tasty, nutritionally balanced and locally sourced. A plentiful supply of treated drinking water will always be available and, in addition, soft drinks, snacks, beer and rum are usually available to buy locally.
By partaking in these volunteer opportunities in Africa you’ll acquire a new appreciation for your own life, be bewildered by nature’s amazing scenes and most probably, never be the same again.
