Volunteer in Africa

Africa is a continent with a wealth of conservation and community projects that are working to produce positive and tangible effect, improving the lives of both local people and preserving biodiversity.

Travel in Africa is enchanting and, from the Savannah to the Cape, full of vibrant life. Immerse yourself within traditional culture with community development or teaching projects, or work on a game reserve and see Africa’s big 5 as your help preserve the fragile ecosystems under threat. Work with desert elephants, protect turtle nesting or swim with whale sharks. Taking part in coastal or marine conservation could even mean you see humpback whales!


Volunteering can be a challenge but it is this challenge that makes it so rewarding. Get involved in any of the relevant, meaningful projects run by Frontier and have the experience of a lifetime. Take part in an internship or gain a FGASA or BTEC qualification to add improve your CV at the same time.

Community projects offer up a host of opportunity to really immerse yourself within another culture as you live and work alongside the local people. Teaching can be a fantastic way to interact with people, helping to improve their English or teach arts, dance or even science depending on your own interests!

Medical volunteering projects are perfect for qualified professionals or those looking to gain more experience alike. Skills and commitment are always welcome and depending on previous experience you could be working in anything from midwifery to a rural clinic. You could choose to help raise awareness for HIV and AIDS, diseases to which there is still a huge stigma attached to making life even more difficult for sufferers.

A sports coaching project in Africa is perfect for anyone wanting to see a less traditional side of volunteering; whether you’d like to work in sports as a future career and would like more experience or have a passion for sport you’d like to share.

Get involved now in any of Frontier’s volunteering projects in Africa by starting your application on the Frontier website. Talk to a volunteer advisor about the right project for you or get started on your dream project by click the ‘Apply Now’ link on the Frontier website.
