We make every effort to ensure all volunteers are safe during their placement. Our teams on the ground are trained and experienced and ready to handle all and any situations that may arise. Our volunteers are always accompanied by an African Impact staff member while on project.
Volunteers are briefed fully about the area that they are living and working in, with advice on how to go about their daily life as a volunteer. We are also very well accepted in the local communities we work in, having been partnered with them for many years.
Obviously caution always needs to be taken when working with wild animals on a conservation project; however, our experienced staff will provide training and support throughout the placement to ensure the safety of every volunteer.
