Via Volunteers

Spend your gap year making a difference and take home some hands-on experience with South African wildlife, community and conservation projects. Via Volunteers offer a wide range of volunteer projects and internships, as well as tours and courses that can be included in your package for an all-round experience.

If you’re an animal-person, you can take your pick of conservation projects for wildlife ranging between the rehabilitation of African penguins and vervet monkeys, the conservation of Great White Sharks and reptiles, monitoring of elephants and rhinos and more. If you’re more the humanitarian, sign up to work with a children’s home or homeless feeding scheme and feel the first-hand reward of helping another human being.


  • Volunteer with a gap year in South Africa
  • Get hands-on experience at animal conservation projects, wildlife sanctuaries, children’s homes, homeless feeding schemes and more
  • Tours and courses can be included in your volunteer package for a full experience
