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. Your mornings are focused on the project you select - medical, sports, teaching, environment, gender empowerment or building. What makes being a Livingstone community volunteer so unique and different than any other project is that you are able to experience so many different activities because every afternoon is different. You will join in a variety of activities that help uplift the community including After School Club, Reading Club, Math Club, Art Club, Maramba Old People’s Home, Linda Farm, Adult Literacy Club, Life Skills workshops and more! This gives you a well-rounded experience and exposes you to all parts of the community.
You’ll 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. You won’t want to leave your “new home” as the staff will become your new family!
Come join us in this special place that will fill your heart with compassion and love. We look forward to welcoming you!
