You can volunteer in Africa as an independent traveller!
Some opportunities give you free food and a place to stay in exchange for your help. Others might ask you to pay for food and accommodation. Keep in mind that in some places in Africa, volunteering isn’t always completely free.
If you want to make a big impact in a short time, choose the opportunities that aren’t free. 🔍 Your money will support the NGOs, and you’ll help even more. Our website, Voluntouring, doesn’t work like a travel agency, so we don’t charge extra fees. That’s why the fees for volunteering, when they’re required, are usually lower than what you’d pay with other organizations.
