When you think of traveling to Africa, the first things that come to mind are safaris and maybe some beach time. While those are both great ideas, there is much more to see and do in South Africa than just that. If you’re looking for a great mix of culture, breathtaking natural wonders, and adventure – then you should consider visiting South Africa. But even better to travel with a purpose! Volunteering is a great way to see the country through a different scope while giving back to the community.
There are many reasons to travel and volunteer in South Africa. The country is full of natural beauty, from its stunning coastline to its vast game reserves. It’s also a land with a rich history and culture, which you can explore in its many museums and heritage sites. And, of course, it’s a great place to volunteer! Whether you’re looking to help out in a conservation project or you want to work in education with children there are plenty of opportunities to make a difference in South Africa. So why not consider spending your next holiday volunteering in this amazing country?
INLEX partners with trusted sustainable projects in South Africa. Volunteers can expect support from the minute they sign up for the program to the moment they leave South Africa.
Projects are inspected by local staff to ensure safety, sustainability, and relevant tasks.
There are two set dates per month for volunteers to join other participants in orientation. These start dates are preferred so all participants start at the same time and get to know each other during orientation.
Participants fly into Cape Town airport (CPT) where they are greeted by the South African team.
If you are arriving via bus or are already in the country we can arrange for your pickup elsewhere in Cape town.
Please note that some wildlife projects required you to fly into Johannesburg instead.
