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.

Volunteer in South Africa – The Wildlife Sanctuary

Hartebeespoort, South Africa

MeMy name is Jens; I am 21 years old and from Germany. I volunteered at the Wildlife Sanctuary near to Johannesburg, for a period two weeks. It the first big journey I had taken on my own and besides volunteering in South Africa, I had also planned a three week trip through South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana afterwards (I can only recommend this combination). I always wanted to visit the southern part of Africa and get close to animals on a deeper level than what is possible as a normal “Kruger Tourist.” I looked for an animal sanctuary near Johannesburg and found this wonderful place!

Gabi : October 23, 2013 5:04 pm : Africa, Education, South Africa

Volunteer in South Africa – Orphan day care

St. Lucia, South Africa

I always wanted to help people and children around the world, to contribute in their lives, and make a difference. Volunteering in South Africa was my perfect opportunity.
I entered into the world of the Zulu Tribe. I learned their language so I could communicate with the villagers and the children in their native tongue, and I learned a bit about their customs.
