These projects offer volunteers the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with animals, getting up close and personal with some of Africa’s most incredible species!

From helping shelter animals in Cape Town or rehabilitating horses in Zimbabwe, to working with chimpanzees in Zambia and lions in Zimbabwe, African Impact has the perfect volunteer project for anyone who loves working abroad with animals.
