South Africa has long been known as one of the world’s most beautiful countries. Cape Town, and the likes of Table Mountain, constantly feature highly on travelers favourite places, and for good reason. By volunteering in South Africa, you’ll encounter a colourful mix of different cultures, breathtaking nature and truly unforgettable experiences.

Yet, despite the obvious beauty of this diverse country, you’ll also get an insight into certain areas of a socially weak system. From children, to wildlife, there are areas which desperately need the support that volunteer projects offer.

South Africa is certainly developing towards a functioning society, and has been ever since the end of apartheid. However, active support is still needed in many sectors, and as such, your work as a volunteer here genuinely makes a huge difference to the community. During your stay, you’ll have the opportunity to see some of the world’s most fascinating cities, with Cape Town leading the way.

Thanks to the 2010 World Cup, Cape Town had been extensively developed and now boasts a strong infrastructure network in the city. This is great for tourists, but doesn’t always benefit some of the local communities. With you commitment to such communities, you will help provide vital support to projects doing important work for underprivileged South Africans.
