Welcome to Volunteer Southern Africa! We are proud to offer life changing volunteer programs that focus on the conservation of some of the most majestic animals on the planet – in their natural habitat. Whether you have dreamt of nursing lion cubs or caring for a herd of elephants, we can help make your dreams come true while making a difference for the planet.

Offering a variety of volunteer opportunities in South Africa, we utilize the passion and dedication of our volunteers to help make a difference in the ecological preservation of some of the most revered animals on Earth. As the climate continues to shift and land is continually decimated for urban growth, it is increasingly difficult for wildlife to survive. They need our help, and our staff and project managers have dedicated their lives to increasing their chances. Make a difference in the world by volunteering in South Africa with animals and you will have memories and photos to last a lifetime.

Volunteer SA proudly offers a number of volunteer projects that cater to your wildlife preferences. Certain projects focus on big cats like Lions and Cheetahs while others let you focus on helping children and orphans. No matter which cause you hold closest to your heart, our South Africa Volunteer experiences will change you while you help change the world. You can apply to specific programs online or contact one of our customer representatives to learn more about our incredible opportunities and Add On Tours to help you make the most of your volunteer experience.
