Go Volunteer Africa programs are run in partnership with in-country NGOs, small community based organizations, local research institutes, academic organizations and conservation agencies. Project descriptions and information are supplied directly by our partners or field staff and are accurate at time of publishing.


We aim to keep information up to date and accurate, however, the nature of our projects and programs and in particular the fact that they are constantly evolving and developing in response to changing needs means that project activities, travel schedules, tour itineraries and daily timetables can change overnight and without notice.
