We offer responsible volunteer programmes, gap year travel, package tours and student leadership experiences for adventurous individuals and groups of all ages. Whether you want to volunteer for two weeks or six months, with rhinos, wild dogs or with children, we have a project to suit every taste and budget.
What makes your company different from the competition?
Conservation Travel Africa works with existing conservation and development projects that are committed to long-term environmental and community principles. We collaborate with conservation experts and community leaders to identify the areas of need where volunteer contributions will have the greatest impact.
Our programmes are designed to meet real conservation and community needs through voluntary efforts, NOT to meet tourist needs through contrived conservation and cultural experiences. We believe that supporting these projects is more beneficial and meaningful than setting up a new project simply to meet the desire of an overseas visitor.
Our programmes endeavour to use responsible tourism practices to build sustainable economies in Africa which place increased value on wildlife and environmental conservation from the ground up.
How many people do you employ or train each year?
We have eight carefully selected volunteer projects and our volunteers stay for an average of 3 weeks each.
Why are you a good company to work for or train with?
Our projects aim to benefit the environment and wildlife in the areas which our projects operate and the people who live there. We also aim to give an enriching experience to the volunteers who participate on these projects and ensure they leave with new knowledge, skills and awareness of the world around them.
