South Africa

Aweh ma bru! TIA – This is Africa.  South Africa really is a destination where you can experience it all.  In fact, it’s one of out most popular volunteer destinations; you can work at lion and tiger parks, wildlife rehabilitation centers, conservation centers with elephants and rhinos, go on wildlife photography expeditions, be a part of community development projects, educate orphaned children, take part in medical outreach and HIV/AIDS awareness programs, and the list goes on my friends.  South Africa truly is a ground-breaking destination for explorers and adventurers who want to experience life in all its fullness. It’s a destination that allows you to scratch below the surface and experience endless possibilities, and to walk away the richer for having been there.
