We have many years of experience in dealing with volunteers, travelers, tourists, organizations and community tourism projects looking for volunteers and travelers. Each month more than 500 volunteer travelers sign up to volunteer and travel with us across Africa. Go Volunteer Africa is the leading and largest volunteer travel organization in Africa.

We’re happy to offer support and advice for both people wanting to offer their own time and those interested in exploring Africa and organizations and tourism social enterprises looking to recruit volunteer travelers and manage them as a part of their workforce or to showcase their beautiful countries.

Who We Work With?

Go Volunteer Africa works with any not-for-profit organization in Africa – this may include charities, community groups, co-operatives and statutory organizations such as health centres, schools, hospitals, etc.

We also work with social enterprises in form of tour companies, community tourism projects and impact focused businesses. We ask to see your volunteer program, tours or set of projects.
