If Safari, beach holiday or sight seeing trip, South Africa offers an exciting variety of experiences. Why stop after a short holiday and not do something different with a purpose? BUNAC offers you the opportunity to take part in life-changing volunteer projects and as part of a group of other volunteers make a real difference to local communities and wildlife in South Africa.

Want to combine your passion for sports with your passion for travelling?

As a volunteer on our Sports Coaching South Africa programme this is exactly what you get for 5 to 12 weeks. As a sports coach you will pass on your passion for sports to South Africa’s disadvantaged township kids and strengthen their social awareness and confidence. Sport is not part of their regular school schedule and by visiting their school on a daily basis and coaching various sports, you and your fellow volunteers really make a difference to their lives.

You will spend your free time in your communal volunteer house in Port Elizabeth, where you will be sharing a room with 4 -8 other volunteers. The communal house is guarded by security staff, located in a quiet and residential area and equipped with a pool, wifi room and lots of other fun facilities.


  • Orientation workshop in Port Elizabeth
  • Coach football, hockey, rugby, tennis, netball, basketball or swimming
  • Improve social awareness and confidence of disadvantaged kids
  • Live togehter with other sport coaches
