About Program

Volunteer in South Africa and experience all the different colors of the 'Rainbow Nation'. Visit vibrant and multicultural cities and work with underprivileged children in the townships of Cape Town and Johannesburg. You want to use your language skills? Great! Teaching English in local schools is the perfect job for you.

You're not a fan of big cities? The endless plains and plateaus are the home of the most famous wildlife and the coastlines offer amazing beaches and plenty of marine life. Get ready to work with elephants, big cats, rhinos, great white sharks, you name it!

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.
