Spend Your Gap Year Volunteering

At African Impact, we create the most transformative and impactful volunteer experiences on the planet for communities, wildlife and volunteers.

Volunteering in Africa is what we do, it’s in our DNA and what we are awarded for year after year. We’ve built, grown and developed our very own projects, hand-in-hand with local African communities since 2004. We work with the most incredible people to make this happen and surround ourselves with inspiring human beings from every corner of the world. We’re constantly pushing the boundaries of excellence and know that volunteering can achieve even more. So, welcome to what good volunteering looks like. Join us and go #BeyondVolunteering to a place that connects cultures, mindset and ideas. A place that leaves you awed and inspired, able to do more, discover more and to make a real impact.
