About

With truly awe-inspiring natural wonders, an abundance of wildlife, and incredible landscapes, Zambia is an unforgettable country for the adventurous and responsible traveller. Zambia's people are hugely kind and welcoming, and their warmth makes for a very safe place to explore.

With the Zambezi river, Victoria falls, Hwange National Park and one of the world's most important lion breeding programs, Zambia is an unforgettable location. However, like many African countries, Zambia still struggles with low resources surrounding healthcare and education. Kaya Responsible Travel offer numerous volunteer placements which allow you to travel through and experience the real Zambia, whilst giving back to the community that welcomes you. From sports coaching, to community development, teaching, healthcare, and even lion rehabilitation - there is a project for everyone keen to immerse themselves into Zambian culture, and to travel responsibly.

Highlights
  • Live and work within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, a stone’s throw from the lion enclosures and the mighty Zambezi River.
  • Empower local women and girls in Livingstone
  • Volunteer in teaching and community work, supporting local schools challenged by large class numbers
  • Contribute to the welfare and rehabilitation of lions
  • In your free time visit the famous Zambezi river and Victoria Falls, hike through the forest and dare to swim in the devil’s pool, or sign up for activities like rafting, abseiling and bungee jumping

You're In Good Hands With Kaya

Booking my volunteering trip with Kaya Volunteer was such a great experience! The staff was very helpful and friendly, and they were able to address all of my questions and concerns through the booking process. They also provide you with plenty of information before you depart, which is extremely helpful to provide a better understanding of the location you are going and what your days may typically look like. I participated on the teaching and community project in Livingstone, Zambia.

We would teach every weekday in the mornings, then have a break for lunch, and then volunteer for a few hours in the afternoon at various places such as after school reading clubs or the old people's home. We had the weekends off to participate on any adventures or excursions that we wanted to!

Volunteering abroad was an amazing life changing experience that opens up your eyes to other parts of the world. Don't be discouraged if you don't have any teaching experience. I didn't either and I was able to catch on quickly with some help from the on-site staff and other volunteers. I volunteered for just 2 weeks and was able to meet tons of lifelong friends from all over the world. The people in Livingstone were so friendly and welcoming, and it is a joy to work with the kids and see how eager they are to learn.

More packing tips or talking to someone who had been on the program already would have been useful before leaving.
