Volunteer in Africa
for the experience of a lifetime
Conservation Travel Africa provides meaningful and ethical travel experiences throughout Southern Africa. We are focused on supporting grass roots organisations, where volunteers and visitors have a tangible impact. Our volunteer projects include the conservation of endangered and priority species, wildlife rehabilitation, research and marine conservation.
We also offer ethical safaris and off-the-beaten-track adventures to some of Africa’s best-kept secrets!
“Africa will change you forever, like nowhere on earth.
Once you have been there, you will never be the same.”

What volunteering means to us
Volunteering is about connections. Connecting with people of all cultures and backgrounds; connecting with nature and wildlife; connecting with yourself, and opening yourself up to remarkable experiences. Our dream is to allow people to travel with a purpose; to engage in new physical and cultural experiences, take time for personal growth and reflection, and contribute their time, skills and energies to projects dedicated to Africa’s vulnerable wildlife and communities.
