Volunteering in Africa

From conservation projects protecting Africa’s wildlife to vital community projects, our volunteering in Africa holidays offer a huge choice so that you can really make a difference on holiday. Most are connected with wildlife conservation, however, helping with serious research in the savannah, tracking and filming, collecting data, taking map sightings with GPS and going on night time safaris. Protecting habitats, monitoring species and forgetting the real world in the most wonderful way.
