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.

Volunteering Duties

Holiday club

Holiday Club

During school holiday in Zambia, we offer what we call a “Holiday Club” project where all of our volunteers gather in the mornings and work together at various primary schools.  Holiday Club is extremely important as it offers students valuable time to catch up on learning they missed during the term.

During this time, you will develop fun and engaging lesson plans to teach the students including space and the solar system, pirates, geography and maps, ocean animals and more!   Students love learning about your country and culture so feel free to bring things from your home country to use for lesson plans, such as pictures, coins, flags, maps, music, foods, and more!  You will also incorporate arts and crafts activities and sports/recreational games into your lessons.  

Afternoon clubs

Afternoon Clubs

Reading Club

Volunteers assist in running reading clubs to support the development of literacy and reading skills among Livingstone’s youth. As a volunteer, you will help give the students the extra support that they need, including teaching them the alphabet, phonics, spelling, pronunciation and general reading and comprehension skills. Competency in English is imperative to Zambian children’s education, as it allows them to understand all other academic subjects, which are tested in English.

Art Club

You will plan out artistic and creative activities including masks, finger painting, Christmas/Easter crafts, and paper mache.  

Adult Literacy Club

Work with adults in the community to help improve their literacy rate and subsequently their chances of employment. This is by far one of the volunteer favourites!

Building and farming

Building and Farming

You will be involved in our on-going building projects with the community and local schools. We use a process called Eco-Bricking - a unique, sustainable and FREE way to make bricks to build incredible structures.  An Eco-Brick is a PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottle filled with soft plastics. Using eco-bricks, volunteers will build greenhouses, chicken coops, compost bins, benches and more.  It’s a great way to leave your legacy in Livingstone! 

Further to that, we also work with sustainable farming programs and assist by helping to prepare the land, planting, watering, weeding and harvesting. It’s fun, hard work with brilliant results.

Things to do in your spare time

Relax

Relax

During your stay at your “home” in Livingstone, the Livingstone Backpackers, you have the opportunity to play volleyball with the locals, explore the variety of restaurants and bars in town, have a “movie under the stars night”, and braai with your group of new friends. The backpackers has beautiful big swimming pool and bar area which is a great place to relax after a hard days work.

Go on safari

GO ON SAFARI

Livingstone, Zambia is safari country. Here, you can spot a whole lot of wildlife, do rhino bushwalks or get up close and personal on an elephant-back safari. You can also go on weekend outings to the world-famous Chobe National Park, which is across the border in Botswana.

Experience vic falls  zambezi adventures

EXPERIENCE VIC FALLS & ZAMBEZI ADVENTURES

Livingstone is your ticket to adventure. Take advantage of your proximity to the great and mighty Victoria Falls, as well as the other adventures the Zambezi has to offer. Zambezi boat cruises, river safaris, river fishing safaris and canoe trips are all ways in which you can encounter these great waters. You can also ride quad bike trails or view the scenery from the air in a microlight or helicopter.

Enjoy cultural tours  markets

ENJOY CULTURAL TOURS & MARKETS

Although you will be spending time in the community, you will also be able to embark on a cultural tour to a local African village, giving you further insight into another way of life. You can also shop at some of the many markets and stock up on locally hand-made goods for your loved ones back home.

Victoria Falls, Zambia

Victoria falls zambia

About the Destination

Livingstone, Zambia is a beautiful, rural town that many call “the real Africa.”  Just a stone’s throw away from one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World - Victoria Falls - Livingstone is the ultimate playground for those who love adventure sports, wildlife and the great outdoors.  Whether you bungee jump, swim in the 'Devil’s Pool', feed some crocodiles, white water raft down the mighty Zambezi or just enjoy a breath-taking sunset, you will experience things that only Livingstone can offer!  Don’t worry, you will certainly not miss out on wildlife. There are many national parks where you can observe lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, elephant and giraffes and often, we spot some of these animals along the road on our way to project!

As Livingstone volunteer, you will be fully immersed in the rural community every day but you will be staying in a private volunteer house within the popular and welcoming Livingstone Backpackers.  You will have access to a lovely swimming pool, hot tub, lounge and bar area and if that wasn’t enough, a full climbing wall as well!  Your accommodation is a 5 minute walk away from Livingstone's town center, which has many stores and a great selection of bars and restaurants, so it's an amazing place to spend Christmas and celebrate the New Year!
