We offer a range of volunteering trips for schools, colleges, universities, sports clubs, families and charities and we do everything we can to provide you with the worthwhile experience you are looking for.

What sets us apart from other group expedition providers and travel companies that offer the opportunity to volunteer in Africa, is our absolute commitment to our partner projects and our firm belief that volunteering is a two-way street which greatly benefits not only the children in Africa but you too. We ensure that you can make a tangible difference to the communities that you work in and we are confident that you will return from your volunteering experience a different person.
