Delivering Experiences
Beyond Expectations
We recognize that it is a big decision to choose to volunteer and travel in Africa, and we want you to have the experience of a lifetime while you’re here. We deliver far more than just “24/7 support”’

Beyond Volunteering,
Creating Global Citizens
Over the years, we have noticed the amazing effects our volunteer programs have had on all involved.  While not always tangible or easy to measure, the biggest impact we make is often on individuals!
Measurable and
Meaningful Projects
Truly understanding of the impact of our projects and your contribution, is what makes African Impact the industry leaders. In fact, we believe this is the only way to justify bringing you here.
We are with
you all the way
