The volunteering in Zambia program places volunteer in a variety of projects including teaching, childcare, conservation, construction, healthcare or sports coaching. Our focus is to deliver an enriching and adventurous Zambia holiday for people who also are dedicated to promoting ethical tourism principles. You might also be based in Livingstone where several projects with disadvantaged communities are operated. Wildlife programs are located throughout the country in places like the spectacular Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Volunteering in Zambia will provide you with a life changing experience, once you see the smiles and feel the warmth of local people you will not want to leave.

One of the most exhilarating projects in Zambia is volunteering with lions which are facing a difficult fight for a future in this country. You can help rehabilitate animals and work to release these incredible creatures in places like the Mosi-oa-Tunya NP. Getting photos of baby lions might be the highlight of the experience. You could also apply to help at a chimpanzee sanctuary and wildlife orphanage, there are sanctuaries which care for over 100 chimpanzees that you will live and help in close contact.

 

Education & Teaching Projects in Zambia

 

We run rewarding educational and teaching programs in Zambia, you could help with lessons or coach sport programs like instructing football and fun outdoors activities. These types of programs can be found at orphanages and community centres which are safe and fun. There may also be the chance to assist local teachers in the village pre-school with basic classes or visit a feeding program at a nearby orphanage. Your help would also be greatly appreciated after school, playing games, sports and helping with homework.

 

Medical & Healthcare Projects in Zambia

 

If you are looking to gain medical work experience or would just like to help people consider medical and healthcare volunteer programs working within poor communities. By joining our medical volunteer projects you can work with people and make a positive impact. Traditional beliefs and witchcraft are still widespread and many people still consult traditional healers instead of seeking professional medical help. More efforts are needed on the ground to reach people in rural areas.

 

You might not know but Zambia also has a shocking rate of HIV and AIDS, this country has around lots of people living with the disease. Due to efforts being made on the ground the numbers of people being infected has decreased in the past few years and you can play a role in helping by either working in clinics or working within communities raising awareness.

 

Environmental & Conservation Projects in Zambia

 

Go Volunteer Africa runs nature and conservation initiatives which need assistance all year round, you could help tree planting activities or work to protect the local environment in places close to the magnificent Zambezi river.

 

We run educational counter-deforestation initiatives where you will get to work with local communities, helping prevent the destruction of the local nature and also help grow trees. These projects have people from all around the world helping make a positive change, you will also get to attend environmental workshops.

 

Volunteer with Animals in Zambia

 

One of the most exhilarating projects in Zambia is volunteering with lions which are facing a difficult fight for a future in this country. You can help rehabilitate animals and work to release these incredible creatures in places like the Mosi-oa-Tunya NP. Getting photos of baby lions might be the highlight of the experience. You could also apply to help at a chimpanzee sanctuary and wildlife orphanage, there are sanctuaries which care for over 100 chimpanzees that you will live and help in close contact.

 

Some other animals which are cared for include baby monkeys and squirrels. Witness incredible animal relationships in close knit chimpanzee family structure, and be part of the day to day care of the orphanage inhabitants. This is a very hands on program whilst others can include monitoring, researching and gathering data on animals and biodiversity. Joining wildlife conservation volunteer programs in Zambia is a worthwhile way to help the preservation of animals and the environment. Full training and safety instructions are provided on arrival and there will be lots of free time to see these animals up close in the wild.

 

Building Volunteer Projects in Zambia

 

Experience a life in a South-West Zambian community and make a contribution to worthwhile volunteer work on short term mission trips which usually include a safari. You will get to experience rural African life in Zambian villages like Mwandi; you will be getting stuck in with community work by helping to build traditional African style houses for families in the village.

 

You’ll be working side by side with community members young and old, as well as trained staff who will show you how it’s done.  You will usually get to round off your trip with some time to relax and explore in Livingstone, home to Victoria Falls where you can choose to organise some adventures of your own before heading home.

 

Start Dates

 

Assistance is needed all year round, we will ask you donate a minimum of 2 weeks but there are other shorter and longer term opportunities available. There are short and long term placements available from 1 week and over, we recommend staying at least 2 weeks so you can make a bigger impact.

 

Go Volunteer Africa provides safe, affordable and meaningful volunteer placements in Zambia. Volunteering  in  Zambia with Go Volunteer Africa is a fantastic way for travelers to be able to give back to communities in need. Go Volunteer Africa programs are the perfect way to meet new people, immerse yourself in new cultures and make a difference in deserving communities in Africa.
