A fusion of old and new, on a canvas of culture and colour, Africa is a truly stunning continent offering variety in every country. Natural beauty can be found everywhere here, from the incredibly beautiful beaches along the coastline, through the rich green of the tropical rainforests to the rippling red sand dunes of the desert.

With such diversity, you can explore so much in Africa by volunteering to get up close and personal to the Big 5 in South Africa, making a real difference and working with underprivileged children in Ghana, or perhaps making your acquaintance with whale sharks and manta rays on marine conservation in Mozambique!

With castles and buildings to explore, beaches to relax on and so much wildlife to see, Africa does not disappoint.

You don’t need any prior know-how to volunteer, all you need is a bit of hard work and 100% commitment to supporting local communities in a range of unusual and inspiring destinations. This is a worthwhile and life changing experience, helping you to truly get a better understanding of this world we live in.

And if you’re just not sure what you would like to do, or if you can’t choose just one project, then take a look at our 25 day South Africa Experience, or our 6 week African Adventure, where you can travel to 3 different African countries for the volunteering experience of a lifetime.

With 24/7 support, fabulous local teams, our accommodation included and a personal pick up from the airport when your flight gets in, we are here to help you to have the very best time that you can in amazing Africa.
