CONSERVATION VOLUNTEERING IN AFRICA

The abundance and variety of wildlife on display across the African continent is truly spectacular. Our conservation volunteer projects are ideal for anyone who is excited at the prospect of living and working among Africa’s spectacular wildlife.

Through voluntary work and education, African Impact aims to positively affect wildlife and environmental initiatives across Africa. We have seen what a difference dedicated and passionate volunteers can make!

As a conservation volunteer, you could find yourself monitoring rhino populations, volunteering on big cat research projects, combating poaching or witnessing the predatory behavior of Great White Sharks – our conservation projects are as diverse as the African continent itself.
