I got the experience I wanted in Uganda

Views: 204 Visited: Sep 2019 Reviewed: Jul 13, 2020

I wanted to have an international experience and combine it with an internship in Public Health. I ended up going with GVA to Uganda, Ashley at GVA arranged for me to intern with a hospital in Mukono, a lively town east of Kampala.

I had an amazing experience; they found the perfect hospital for me to work at. GVA team treated me well from the first time I ever sent them an email regarding placement positions in Africa.

I had mentioned t... read more

We used Go Volunteer Africa to plan our honeymoon in October 2019 for two weeks in Tanzania and Zanzibar and I must say they are the best.

We wanted to have a meaningful honeymoon with some engagement at a vulnerable children's centre in Arusha, a safari to Serengenti and honeymoon experience in Zanzibar.

We were well received at the airports by our guides and we got the best deals since they got us the best hotels in both countries an... read more

It was an amazing and life changing experience to do volunteering work in Zambia!

I spent six weeks in Zambia with Go Volunteer Africa. It was an amazing and life changing experience to do volunteering work in Zambia! The host family was of great help, both during the project weeks as well as other activities in the weekends.

The overall experience was just incredible and those weeks have significantly changed my life forever. The country manager was an amazing man and he is doing an incredible job and there is nothing ... read more

Award winning organisation?

Views: 193 Visited: Reviewed: Mar 15, 2020

I booked a wildlife conservation project in Maun, Botswana in January 2020. After I paid $1620 and travelled to Maun, the project was cancelled 4 days before it would start by Jim Kruche, the Sales Officer. Which of course is unbelievable on such a short notice. He apologised and promised to refund the $1620.

It is very hard to get in touch with someone of Go Volunteer Africa, since they only have a general mail address. But finally, after... read more

I recommend Go Volunteer Africa

I would recommend you coming to volunteer in Uganda with Go Volunteer Africa - I have been here for 6 weeks and had an absolutely fantastic time. There was a real sense of pleasure in arriving at the school and having children running towards me with a smile and a shout of 'Tommie' or 'Hello teacher'.

The volunteer work I have been doing in Mukono, very close to the Lake Victoria, over the last few weeks has definitely been as personally re... read more

I had a really positive experience with Go Volunteer Africa.

I had a really positive experience with Go Volunteer Africa. The level of support and friendship I received from GVA staff members and fellow volunteers made this an incredibly rewarding and positive experience.

I researched a lot of organizations before I went to Kenya, some of which were cheaper and some better organized than Go Volunteer Africa, but I really wanted an organization that was part of the community.

It was such an amazi... read more

Our experience in East Africa was excellent and rewarding

All we could say about Go Volunteer Africa is wow and thank you for making our Christmas holiday memorable and awesome! As a family, we were so confused in the beginning, we had lots of interests and we wanted to volunteer in Rwanda, see gorillas in Uganda, go to the coast in Kenya and spend some time in Zanzibar too.

We wanted to use various companies and we didn’t want to put all our eggs in one basket. Although GVA offers products and se... read more

I recommend the program

Views: 104 Visited: Sep 2019 Reviewed: Dec 19, 2019

I spent 2 weeks volunteering in Tanzania working on the childcare project. It was an incredible experience which has given me an insight into their different culture and way of life. The pre departure information was informative and helpful.

The host family was very accommodating and couldn’t have been more welcoming. The accommodation was okay you get used to the cold showers. The childcare project was very enjoyable although not what I e... read more

We have participated in Go Volunteer Africa’s family volunteer and explore program in Mombasa, Kenya for 15 days and we really enjoyed our time with them.

Tim, our coordinator, answered every question and request for changes very fast and patiently. So he planned the perfect program for us and volunteer guesthouse in Mombasa was really the perfect wish for our family.

Salim, our Project Manager and Guide, was very professional and really... read more

It was a life-changing experience

I spent 4 weeks in Rwanda with Go Volunteer Africa and I was able to participate in different programs, mostly teaching English to children and working with women projects. But they also have programs with sports and young men enterprises and lots of outreach activities.

It was a life changing experience and we could connect with the communities and get to know the people who live there. For me, this was the number one reason why I loved th... read more

Musanze is an amazing place

Views: 925 Visited: Jul 2019 Reviewed: Sep 16, 2019

Musanze is an amazing place and my experience at the women’s center and with Go Volunteer Africa was incredible. It was very well organized right from the moment I signed up, Jim supported me throughout the entire experience, all of my questions were answered thoroughly and promptly and I had the experience of a lifetime.

Although I had wanted to stay in Kigali, but Jim’s offer for Musanze turned out to be the best. I stayed with a local h... read more
