    Since 2004, African Impact have delivered life changing and responsible volunteer and internship programs across Africa. Come join our dedicated teams and experience projects developed and grown hand-in-hand with local communities.

    From its rolling hills and verdant forests to its sun-kissed beaches and crystal-clear waters, the continent is a feast for the eyes. A visit to Africa is a chance to experience nature at its finest. The breathtaking beauty of Africa’s landscape is sure to leave a lasting impression. Our volunteer projects in Africa will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in traditional life and witness a side of Africa that few get to see.

    The cultural roots in Africa run deep. There’s an amazing amount to learn if you are open and respectful to these values and beliefs while volunteering. Additionally, life in many African countries moves at a slower pace, it’s a great chance to unwind and experience a different pace of life.

    African nations boast over 2000 different languages, each with its own local dialects. This can seem daunting, but it’s all part of the experience. Embrace the unfamiliar and challenge yourself to communicate in new ways. Who knows, you might even learn a new language or a few phrases!

    African Impact offers volunteer programs in the following locations and countries: 

    Cape Town, South Africa


    Livingstone, Zambia

    Greater Kruger Area, South Africa




    These destinations are full of natural wonders and rich cultural heritage. In every African country we work in, we’ve identified the needs of the local communities and together we work towards supporting sustainable development and helping people overcome these challenges.
