Volunteering in Zanzibar- Taking in the sights, taking pictures, taking a ferry, taking your time … no wonder they call it taking a vacation. Instead of always taking something away when you travel, why not give something back? There’s no better cultural immersion than to earn respect by working side by side with locals.

Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous region of Tanzania. It is composed of the Zanzibar Archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 25–50 kilometres (16–31 mi) off the coast of the mainland Tanzania, and consists of many small islands and two large ones: Unguja (the main island, referred to informally as Zanzibar) and Pemba Island.

The options are endless in Zanzibar; pick one you’re passionate about and leave the land, animals or people better off than before you arrived. The bonus is you may find you take away more from your travel than ever before. All of our volunteer projects in Zanzibar have been formulated by our team, to give our self funding volunteers the most meaningful of experiences.

You’d like to combine sightseeing with the opportunity to roll up your sleeves, you’d like to volunteer in Zanzibar but don’t have more than a few days or weeks, you want to make a difference and give something back, you want to see and experience something different without missing out on the highlights, then you should check out what our volunteering in Zanzibar opportunity has to offer.

While having a holiday in Zanzibar brings wonderful experiences, our volunteer program in Zanzibar allows you to give something back to the places you visit. Not only this is a great way to scratch below the ‘tourism surface’, but you’ll also make a real difference to communities at grassroots, and we’re sure you will make some special friends at the same time.
