Volunteer in South Africa and experience all the different colours of the 'Rainbow Nation'! Visit vibrant and multicultural cities and work with underprivileged children in the townships of Cape Town and Johannesburg. Do you want to use your language skills? Great! Teaching English in local schools is perfect for you.

You're not a fan of big cities? The endless plains and plateaus are home to the most famous wildlife and the coastlines offer amazing beaches and plenty of marine life. Get ready to work with the big 5 such as elephants, lions and rhinos, with big cats in general, or even the great white shark!

What makes this African country particularly interesting for volunteers is the variety of areas you can volunteer in such as:

- helping projects with wildlife conservation
- protecting the nature and environment
- getting involved in marine conservation
- teaching disadvantaged children
- working for a health care project
