The oldest and one of the most majestic continents of the world, Africa is wild, vivacious, culturally rich, diverse and still in a developing phase. This leaves Africa with an enormous potential of hosting numerous volunteering and travel opportunities for nature, wildlife, and culture lovers and also serious volunteers who aim to contribute to bringing a change in the lives of the African people.

Honeyteering in Africa

The Republics of Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda created the Borderless Borders brand to open new opportunities for travel throughout the region. This comes as a result of the decision made by the Heads of States to issue a single tourist visa known as the East Africa Tourist Visa. Travelers from any country can obtain a multiple entry visa that will allow entry to the Republic of Kenya, the Republic of Rwanda, and the Republic of Uganda for tourism over period of 90 days.

Country Of Entry

The holder of the East Africa Tourist Visa shall enter the region from the country that issued the visa and move within the two other countries without applying for another visa or paying another visa fee.
