Go Volunteer Africa has been leading volunteering and discovery trips since 2009. We have volunteering projects and organize safaris across Africa. From building, to teaching, to childcare, all combined with memorable safaris and tours! You can join a group or take a group of your own, we also have solo programs.

Our projects are established in collaboration with the host community, so we know we are addressing a real need and genuinely making a difference to those communities’ lives – but if you have an idea for a project please do let us know!

Go Volunteer Africa combines community development, service learning, and fun filled adventures! We work on many different projects which support the advancement of education, healthcare and the relief of poverty by focusing on education, Agriculture, health, environment and social development.

Go Volunteer Africa community projects focus on building basic infrastructure to assist local community development. Our approach to community development is different because each project we run is owned and led by the community to ensure its sustainability. We work closely in partnership with village leaders, local organizations and charities and that means each project is fully integrated into village life.

We are dedicated to empowering communities through sustainable service, transformative learning, and adventurous exploration. Go Volunteer Africa leads the way in combining meaningful volunteer encounters and fun filled adventures in Africa – Work Hard and Have Fun.

    GO VOLUNTEER AFRICA IS BEST VOLUNTEER COMPANY IN AFRICA

    I've been checking out Go Volunteer Africa for a few years now before I finally decided to take the leap. Simply reflecting back on my time volunteering here in Uganda makes me tear up. I had the most amazing life changing experience I could have ever asked for.

    I had a genuinely meaningful, fulfilling, and enjoyable time on my first trip. The youth support project is based here in Mukono, east of Kampala the capital and largest city in this nation.
    I connected well with both fellow international travellers, but the rich local community, too. This was the deepest, most profound educational experience is the hands-on volunteering.

    The placement was ideal for me, as it allowed me to deploy my love for / experience with young children and enabled me to help the promotion of education for young women from disadvantaged communities.
    Overall, I developed a deep connection with the country and community, while also diversifying my interactions and experiences with a unique, cosmopolitan group of travellers staying in the hostel.

    It beyond exceeded my expectations. The support of the Kenyan and Ugandan team had me at ease, the local team is very amazing, and the accommodation and food is incredible.

    Mukono is an incredible place – the nightlife is wonderful – I will miss it a lot. I can't say enough good things about Go Volunteer Africa and the experience I had volunteering. I can't wait for my next adventure!
