Volunteering in Africa

Africa is a vast continent, and covers all varieties of landscape from desert to jungle, savannah to vast mountain ranges. This variety means Africa is also home to a huge range of animal life, including many of the world’s most iconic animals. For the wildlife volunteer, this means an amazing array of options are available. From working on a cheetah conservation project, to carrying out marine conservation work on a protected reef, to monitoring lemur populations in Madagascar, and even becoming a qualified game park field guide, volunteering in Africa offers unparalleled choice.

With Africa also being home to some of the world’s poorest communities, social volunteering is also hugely popular. Whether you are a trained teacher, medic, sports coach or social worker, or if you would like to gain experience or qualifications in any of these areas, community volunteering in Africa can offer a rewarding and eye-opening experience.
