South Africa is African Impact’s home, and is consistently rated one of the top travel destinations in the world. Watch the sunrise from the top of a mountain, catch a wave in the ocean and spot an elephant roaming at dusk all in the same day! As an African Impact volunteer in South Africa, you will directly focus on the sustainable development of local communities or conserving the country’s precious wildlife.


Zanzibar is a unique island just off the coast of Tanzania in East Africa that is famous for its rugged island culture, fascinating history, and mesmerizing beaches. It is a place where the air is fragrant with the smell of spices and the tropical beaches will take your breath away.


Livingstone in Zambia is a beautiful, rural town that many call “the real Africa.” Just a stone’s throw away from one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World – Victoria Falls – Livingstone is the ultimate playground for those who love adventure sports, wildlife and the great outdoors.
