Multi-Project Volunteering (6 or 12 weeks)

Check out our multi-project volunteering opportunities with BUNAC!

If you're looking for an exciting and challenging experience for 6 or 12 weeks, work in a range of diverse communities in Borneo, Ecuador, Cambodia, Costa Rica or Tanzania. These programmes are aimed to get you off the beaten track and experiencing real culture as you immerse yourself in the local communities.

On these programmes you swap your pen for a spade and your classroom for the jungle and get involved in lots of different projects from conservation to eco-tourism. Open your eyes to diverse communities and make lots of new friends and memories that you will never forget!

Wildlife Conservation in South Africa (18 or 32 days)

Check out our amazing wildlife conservation project in South Africa!

Get up close to some of the world's most exciting animals by volunteering behind the scenes on a stunning Big 5 game reserve near Johanesburg. There's no shadowing here... you'll be getting your hands dirty, taking on real responsibility looking after African wildlife. You will be working alongside local staff and other volunteers in the great outdoors. 

Work on projects with cheetahs or elephants and rhinos, monitoring their activity and assisting on projects at the reserve. You will stay in accommodation included with the programme where you can chill out with the other volunteers after a long day working.

Sports Coaching in South Africa (5 or 12 weeks)

Do you have a passion for sport? Why not channel this to disadvantaged children living in Port Elizabeth in South Africa, giving them the opportunity to play a variety of sports from netball to rugby. You're not simply coaching sport, you're making a real difference to children's lives... plus it will look really impressive on your CV!
