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.

Work & Impacts

Dsc 5021

A major part of the Orphan Care and Teaching Volunteer project is community upliftment and development, bringing hope for the future of this nation.

Caring for the vulnerable

Caring for the Vulnerable

By volunteering with children abroad, simply playing with them, giving them a smile or a hug can have a life-changing effect. Positive interaction increases their self-worth, instilling a sense of acceptance and giving them vision for a happy future.

Many of the children also benefit from chatting with volunteers, practicing their English and learning about different countries and cultures. HIV/AIDS sufferers and the elderly are also vulnerable to rejection, prejudice and negligence from the community. Recognition and care brings much hope to them.

Community upliftment

Community Upliftment

An improved standard of living brings about a sense of pride in ones work and a desire to better one’s life and community. By painting, renovating and providing basic sanitation facilities your volunteer work has a life-changing impact.

Community development

Community Development

Community upliftment projects are vital for the sustained and prosperous future of Zimbabwe. From getting your hands dirty in the vegetable gardens, healthcare volunteering or sharing your skills and expertise in improving and facilitating community projects, you can make a lasting difference.

Education

Education

The most powerful weapon for the future of this generation is contributing to education in the local community. Teaching volunteers play a big role not only in imparting knowledge but also in life skills development and basic physical development and health through fun sporting activities.

Conservation

Conservation

As one of the main tourist attractions in Zimbabwe, the Victoria Falls is an important part of economic sustenance in this community as well as a source of hydro- power generation. You can play an important part in conservation efforts through conservation education. The volunteer location also provides the opportunity to see the Lion Rehabilitation Programme.

Fun & Travel

Things to do in your spare time

On your doorstep

On Your Doorstep

Volunteer accommodation is a mere 2km from the breath-taking Victoria Falls and mighty Zambezi River. Vic Falls is a quaint tourist town and full of great restaurants and bars for you to visit. As a volunteer you will enjoy barbeques together, group dinners at local restaurants, night research drives and sun downers.

Adventure seekers

Adventure Seekers

The Victoria Falls region has ample activities to appeal to the adrenaline junkie in you. Adventures include: white-water rafting, canoeing, elephant rides, walking with lions, helicopter & micro-light flights, bungee jumping, gorge swinging and to stock up on souvenirs to remember it all, a trip to the craft market.

Leisure activities

Leisure Activities

Once you have had your adrenaline fix the leisurely options of a sunset cruise, horseback safari and steam train trip await. Vic Falls is also a great destination for birdwatching.

About Victoria Falls

About victoria falls

About the Destination

Victoria Falls Town is not only host to one of the Seven Wonders of the World but also welcomes its guests with warm smiles and friendly hospitality. Volunteers stay at the Outpost Lodge, which is a private property for volunteers and staff complete with a great dining area, pool and indoor and outdoor living spaces. People are incredibly friendly and hospitable and love to welcome you in sharing the beauty of their surroundings. Victoria Falls is a safe town with the most remarkable sunrises and sunsets.

This beautiful area of Zimbabwe is the perfect place to indulge your senses, with the majestic site of the Falls and the sound of its thunder and feel of its spray. An array of wildlife such as buffalo, elephant, baboons, warthog and elephants are common sightings and occasionally lions and leopards have also been spotted nearby. Bushbuck, waterbuck, crocodiles, hyena, hippo and eagles also make their home in the vicinity of the Zambezi waters.

Volunteers can enjoy some unusual cuisine at local restaurants by trying warthog or crocodile meat, and for the less adventurous you will easily be able to find the standard ‘safer’ fare of pizza, burgers, locally grown vegetables and fruits.

Your eyes will be opened to a life far removed from your own and you will leave with a deep sense of gratitude, love for those whose lives you touched and who touched yours and your soul will always thank you for taking this journey in volunteering abroad.

Feedback from our volunteers

Olivia Frank, Canada

It was a life- altering journey, both externally (for the new location) and internally. The people, the animals, and the environment awaken different parts of your mind that you may never have known about (such as a different view of the world and a hope that you can help in the future even once you have left), and you learn so much about yourself, the people you meet, and the part of the world you visit.

Celine Leeuwestein, Holland

You meet a lot of amazing people and are involved in many projects. I loved that we all lived together in the lodge and had fun during the projects and in our freetime. You really bond with the other volunteers, and with the amazing country in a way that would never happen when you just travel as a tourist. Here you get to know the people and the way of living in the community.

Frederieke Veenenbos, Holland

Volunteering to me is a way to say thank you to the world for treating some of us so right, and helping out with giving this same loved feeling to others. My experience is that volunteering also is the best way to meet local and honest people, you learn more than they could ever learn you but that is okay. You will be thankful for being there, they will be thankful for you.
