You’ll be housed in the bohemian suburb of Observatory. The secure, fully furnished property is a 10 minute drive from Cape Town city centre. It is staffed with a friendly cook and housekeeper and Wifi is available for a small fee with a small lock-up safe for your valuables. You will share a room with two to four other volunteers, also over 30.
Cape Town has a plethora of wonderful restaurants catering to all culinary preferences. You can explore the city by taking the Hop-on, Hop-off City Tour bus and shop at the markets or spend a day at the V&A Waterfront. Visit heritage sites such as the Castle of Good Hope and maybe even spot whales and dolphins off the coast.
Capetonians are friendly people and as you work and travel in Africa you will build meaningful relationships and gain valuable insights into the complexities of both poverty and social development. You will gain new perspectives and an appreciation for your own luxuries, learning about yourself, as you give to others.
