Go Volunteer Africa is an award-winning volunteer travel operator. Go Volunteer Africa provides sustainable and ethical volunteer projects, and exciting adventure holidays in Africa. Go Volunteer Africa is number one provider of affordable and meaningful volunteer travel programs in Africa.

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.

    I highly recommend this program

    I volunteered in Rwanda for 2 weeks with Go Volunteer Africa. Paul was our coordinator and he did a fabulous job with everything planning. He was very supportive and always available for help.

    Before I made my decision to volunteer I managed to talk with some of the past volunteers through a connection. I received varieties of feedbacks some were very positive and some were partially positive.

    But one thing I learned from all participants is that the projects associated with GVA are positive life changing and the hosts are very nice and honest. They will go out of their way to help you and make your stay smooth.
    I really enjoyed my hospital experience because I got to rotate through all the different departments in the hospital on different days including surgery, pharmacy, pediatric care, primary care etc.

    It was great to have this hands on experience. Since I had already traveled to Uganda and Kenya for safari, I spent the weekend volunteering with children. It was a lot of fun playing with the kids. Our host family was great.

    I shared a room in the same host family with another volunteer. It was also pretty easy to navigate the bus system between the family, the school and the hospital. I highly recommend this program.
