South Africa is a picturesque country with sprawling garden route towns, historic national parks, and a stunning coastline famous with surfers worldwide. The bigger cities like Cape Town are crucibles of cosmopolitan culture and cuisine. The country offers rewarding opportunities for travelers, whether you are the adventurous kind or someone with a penchant for exploring urban culture.
Our Volunteer Abroad Programs in South Africa are centered in and around South Africa. It is aptly named the “Rainbow Nation” for its fight for several decades to overcome aparthied and other racially discriminatory practices. Although aparthied is a thing of the past, the country still suffers from economic disparities, gender-based violence, and illegal wildlife trade. Our Volunteering Abroad in South Africa tackle some of these issues. As in any other developing country, South Africa needs volunteers who can help with achieving the short and long-term objectives of humanitarian and animal welfare programs.
