Rich culture and adventure are abundant in this African nation, considered one of the safest countries in the world. Between exploring the world’s biggest waterfall, Victoria Falls, and enjoying the spectacular safaris on offer, you’ll love getting to know the people who call this paradise home.

Zambia is spoiled with ample sunshine and wandering predators. Get up-close and personal with chimpanzees and lions, or give something back to local communities in the form of sustainable buildings and classroom support.

Hi Corky, Unfortunately we don't work with giraffes in Zambia. However, we do a lot of work with wild animals in South Africa. In fact, we run a Wildlife and Field Research Internship in the Greater Kruger Area that could see you researching and spending time collecting data on wild giraffe populations. If you're interested in learning more about that opportunity, please visit: https://www...

My experience with African Impact

Working with African Impact was the most profound and fruitful experience of my entire life. I advise any potential volunteers to embrace the culture and keep an open mind in order to learn more about yourself and the world around you through the experience of giving. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to build relationships with so many wonderful people from all ages and walks of life in the beautiful community of Livingstone!

Best Experience of my life!!

Volunteering in Livingstone allowed me to soak up the culture whether that was through Home Based Care or just chatting to the children at family support. It changed my perspective on life; it made me a more positive person and showed me how people in Livingstone live such a difficult life yet are still so happy and how back home we should appreciate everything that we have. The medical programme is very well put together; from the organisation beforehand and getting it booked to the support from staff on the project. I fell in love with Africa and hope to return in the very near future.

They have the most helpful staff, making an amazing impact on local communities! Always so much going on. Weekends free to see local sights such as the amazing Victoria Falls. I met some friends for life and wouldn't have changed a single thing about it!!!
