Volunteer & Intern Travel News

Volunteering in South Africa for many international visitors means going to Cape Town or somewhere in the bush if they join a wildlife or conservation project. We know there is a lot more to South Africa than Cape Town and throughout the last 10 years Khaya always has a small presence in Cape Town by providing 1 or 2 projects.

Does volunteering with Khaya appeal to you, but you need some direction on how to get started? No worries, we know it can be difficult sometimes, but here’s a guide to help you become one of us. Just read it through, and in no time, you’ll be in beautiful Africa!

When you decide to go volunteering, most people decide to do it overseas in a far-off destination. Of course, this is amazing; you get to visit a new country and learn all about a new culture, but there is a challenge to it as well, because you, of course, also have to get to that far off country and that means a long-haul flight.

If you’re planning a trip to South Africa, whether just as a tourist, or as a prospective volunteer who wants to do some serious sightseeing, you probably have a lot of questions. Is a developing country like South Africa safe to travel around?
