How your Volunteer Fee is Used:

Volunteer tourism, or ‘voluntourism’ as it is popularly known, is loosely defined as a holiday in which you give back to the land you are visiting; contributing to either community development or conservation. But it’s so much more than that. Voluntourism encompasses a new trend of responsible tourism, where travelers are making informed and responsible choices and planning trips which don’t negatively affect the country or communities they are visiting. When volunteering, it is critical that travelers choose a volunteer organisation or charity with a proven ethos and philosophy around sustainable and responsible tourism practices. This applies both to their work with local communities, wildlife and our volunteers themselves.

African Impact is proud to have a 10 year track record of facilitating responsible volunteer programs in Africa, providing 24 hour support and guidance for volunteers and offering on-going support to communities in need. Understandably, these operations cost money to run and this is where the volunteer fee comes in.

You can ride on the Hop-on, Hop-off Cape Town City Sightseeing Bus to explore this unique city, shop at Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, enjoy the many delicious eateries, go on a Cape Point Peninsula Tour including a swim with the penguins at Boulders Beach and taste some of the world’s finest wines on a delectable winelands tour.

The magnificent Table Mountain can be hiked, or you can take the cable car to the top. Surfing lessons, Shark Cage Diving and Sky-diving are also on the ‘adventure menu’.

Beaches & Picnic

Feedback from our volunteers

Megan Petrous, USA

Coming to South Africa to intern with Greenpop was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not only was I able to spend three months in the beautiful city of Cape Town, but I also got to meet wonderful people, make great memories, gain valuable work experience, and get my hands dirty while making the world a greener, more beautiful place. During the three months that I interned for Greenpop, I was entrusted to take on challenging tasks that helped me develop the skills that I will need as I continue in my career. Aside from contributing to my career development, my internship also gave me the opportunity to work with the driven, passionate, and amazing people that make up the Greenpop team. The workplace atmosphere that Greenpop embodies is truly that of a family, and not a day passes that isn’t fun and exciting.
