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 helping with marine conservation in Mozambique!

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

You don’t need any qualifications or experience to volunteer, just a bit of hard work and 100% commitment to supporting the cause. This is a worthwhile and life changing experience helping you to truly get a better understanding of the world we live in.

With 24/7 support, friendly and helpful local teams, 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.
