Volunteer in Africa

Wildlife conservation

Famous for its Big 5 – lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, and rhinos – Africa offers the ultimate safari experience. See these beasts in the wild or help rehabilitate animals in some of Africa’s wildlife sanctuaries, you could even learn your trade as a field guide in South Africa by taking our FGASA approved course.

Africa has more on offer than the Big 5 however: terrestrial conservation in Madagascar or Tanzania could see you living on a beach camp learning field research techniques that will see you study some of the species endemic to the area. Find lemurs or their arch enemy the fossa in Madagascar, or research bat species and bush babies in Tanzania – Africa has a wealth of natural biodiversity that volunteers are vital in helping preserve.

Marine conservation in East Africa is also vital and Frontier has research camps set up on islands off of both Tanzania and Madagascar. Use dive surveys to monitor vibrant coral reefs and marine species, and work with the local community to improve awareness for the fragile coastal ecosystems.

Or visit Tanzania, the birth place of Frontier, and see the Mafia Island Marine Park that was established in 1989 in a joint effort with the WWF to produce one of the world’s most successful multi-user marine parks. The park still exhibits its founding principles today, where it works closely with local people to help preserve biodiversity whilst creating sustainable economic solutions for Mafia communities.

Community development

Africa is a continent well known for the troubles that face its people on a daily basis. Political strife and agricultural difficulties have often prevented first world development in many parts of Africa. Frontier has many projects that aim to help reduce the impact of these hardships, whether its missionary work, teaching, or healthcare projects.

Working in an orphanage can help provide young children with the care and attention they require growing up, whilst teaching English to older students can help provide them with the skills they need to develop a career later in life. A medical internship can provide the necessary assistance a rural clinic might need to operate at an effective level, or alternative a healthcare internship could see you help raise awareness for HIV and AIDS sufferers and decrease the stigma attached to the disease.

Opportunities with Frontier

Frontier offers a number of opportunities to volunteer across Africa, in Kenya, Mozambique, Cameroon, Uganda, Senegal, Ethiopia, Swaziland, Malawi, Gambia, Ghana, Namibia, Botswana, Morocco, South Africa, Tanzania, and Madagascar.
