Volunteer South Africa

 

Volunteer South Africa


If undertaking volunteer opportunities in South Africa best ensure you leave some time in your schedule to take in the country's wonders from Table Mountain to God's Window, from mountains to forests, from a craggy 3000km coastline to deserts and, for the more adventurous, there's even shark cage diving and, of course, Kruger National Park that covers vast shrublands populated by big game. Whatever takes your fancy in your volunteer downtime, you'll find it in the Rainbow Nation!


Please note that many volunteer opportunities in South Africa have been put on hold because of travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully they will be back up and running soon. In the meantime, if you run or know of a volunteer work project in South Africa let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!
