Volunteering in Africa takes you one step further than the average tourist into the true character of this unique continent. To us, volunteering is a two-way thing. It’s not only about the hands-on help and skills that volunteers bring, but also about what this magnificent continent, its warm people and amazing wildlife can give volunteers in return.

African Impact is a multi-award winning volunteer travel organization which runs and manages meaningful and responsible volunteer experiences and internship programs throughout Africa. Founded in 2004 in Zimbabwe, African Impact has grown into the leaders in African volunteer tourism, having facilitated over 12,000 volunteers and interns in 12 countries across the African continent.

Our internship division is really important to us. We feel strongly that ethical internships can play a big role in helping us achieve our mission of providing amazing experiences which contribute to worthy causes in a viable way. With the nurturing of close partnerships across the continent, we have access to over 120 internship placements all individually managed to match the applicant.
