Come and join us on one of our South Africa programs and experience the wonders that this country has to offer. Volunteers will spend one week working at a crèche for local children and another week working to protect endangered animals on a game reserve.
At the crèche, you will work to improve facilities and resources for the children and their carers; teach English, play games and help with the children’s daily lessons. Previous volunteers have built jungle gyms, clean water facilities, play areas and classrooms for over 180 children. You will be a part of the on-going quest to build and provide safe and secure learning environments for the children of rural South Africa.
During your second week in South Africa, you will be living on a Zululand Game Reserve. Here you will be tracking and monitoring amazing wild animals such as cheetahs, leopards and white rhinos and have a day dedicated to the “Big 5”. Experience working on the front line of conservation and make a real difference!
