Your Base

With all accommodation included in your experience, you can relax after a hard days work volunteering. With varying types of accommodation in keeping with whatever project you might find yourself doing, be prepared to bunk up with your new buddies in tents, hostels, volunteer houses and more.

Be sure to bring your rubber gloves and culinary skills though, as you’ll be expected to pull your weight and help with the cooking and the cleaning in the evenings. Don’t panic if you can’t cook; anyone can chop vegetables!
