Description

Volunteer in projects that go beyond building structures or facilities! With African Impact, you can take part in unique activities that range from using rubbish and plastic bottles to make bricks to conserving elephants by improving their access to water points. Aren’t these amazing opportunities?

If you love being outdoors and getting your hands dirty, sign up for any of these projects:
- Sustainable Building with EcoBricks (Zambia): Multi-awarded for innovation and excellence, as well as the world’s first in this field
- Ultimate Volunteering Adventure (Zambia): A combination of eco-building, sports, and cycle tours
- Desert Elephant Conservation (Namibia): Involves building structures and walls to provide elephants access to water points

Share your passion for the environment by joining African Impact in Zambia or Namibia. You won’t just work throughout your stay. There will be plenty of time to engage with local people and immerse in their culture. You can also take part in exciting activities such as sand boarding, bungee jumping, white water rafting, and several more!

Most of our projects are open to unqualified volunteers who go through an orientation program on arrival to prepare them for work. Our volunteers must have passion, an open mind, and a willingness to learn, participate and contribute. We require all volunteers to speak English, as all inductions and safety briefings are given in English.
