RWANDA: Family Volunteer Safaris

Rwanda Family Volunteer Safaris
Rwanda Family Volunteer Safaris

If you’re looking to add meaning to your family Rwanda adventure, volunteering is a great way to do so. From week-long Rwanda family volunteer safaris countless culture immersion opportunities in Kigali, Butare and Musanze.

Whether women empowerment project, wildlife conservation to sports and games coaching or an initiative that builds schools for kids or an eco-conservation project, all you have to decide is which cause you’re most interested in supporting as a family.

The benefits of family travel have been well documented: Trips can build empathy, bring families closer, expand your worldview, and expose you to different ways of life. But what about returning the favor by giving back to the places and people you meet along the way?

Go Volunteer Africa is dedicated to wildlife and environmental conservation, education and healthcare as well as community development and commitment to making a difference in the world, leaving our mark.

Family Game Drives Rwanda

Our Rwanda family volunteer safaris focus on conservation and community empowerment and we strive to benefit the community through wildlife and environmental education, not only to make a difference to their lives but to also ensure our conservation efforts will be successful and sustainable.

We have an extensive footprint across in Rwanda, where we proudly offer amazing family volunteer opportunities  since 2013! We will match your skills and family expectations with those of your host project to ensure your placements are a professionally, as well as a personally, rewarding experience.

Our volunteer programs in Rwanda allow our volunteers the opportunity to work alongside local and interesting people that help ensure their survival. Working with very willing disadvantaged communities also forms part of the make-up of these incredible life enhancing programs.

One of the best ways to really get under the skin of any destination is to actually cover a large amount of ground during your travels. Go where very few get to go and join one of our overland tours and breathtaking safaris.
