Conservation Travel Africa provides meaningful and ethical volunteer travel experiences throughout Southern Africa. We are focused on supporting grass roots organisations, where volunteers and visitors have a tangible impact. Our volunteer projects in Africa 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
Our projects allow people to volunteer in Africa with a purpose. We believe volunteering is about making connections. Connecting with people of different cultures, with nature and wildlife and re-connecting with yourself. It allows you to open up to new and remarkable experiences. Volunteering means having new physical and cultural experiences, taking the time for personal growth and reflection, and contributing time and energy to volunteer projects dedicated to Africa’s vulnerable wildlife and communities.
