Jobs in Africa
If you have fallen in love with Africa and want to find a job so you can stay longer, there are plenty of opportunities. Africa is not lacking in unskilled labour, so most jobs that are open to foreigners usually require a skill or a university degree. Working in a developing country is also fun and rewarding. Whilst in Africa, working as a volunteer is a great way to be a responsible tourist and make a positive contribution to the local communities. If you volunteer in Africa it’s also an ideal opportunity to fully immerse yourself in African culture and get to know the continent on a far more intimate level. In order to volunteer in Africa the vast majority of projects don’t require volunteers to have any specific skills or qualifications – simply plenty of energy and enthusiasm.

If you volunteer in Africa with wildlife you can get close to an incredible range of animals – from lions in Kenya’s Masai Mara game reserve to Mountain Gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest! The other main Africa volunteer option is to help care for disadvantaged people and there are also many opportunities – from helping to care for AIDS orphans to teaching in schools. There are also many active conservation projects within which you may actively participate.

If you are looking for work in Africa, whether it be Voluntary, Travel, Hotel & Hospitality, Tourism, Game Wardens or Rangers, Conservation and so on, then we suggest you make contact with us and we may just connect you with your dream job. So, DO NOT hesitate to Contact Us>>>

Volunteer Opportunities: Conservation Projects

For those looking for volunteer work in Africa there are plenty of opportunities available. Volunteer work / programs give you is a unique opportunity to make a real difference in the world. Most of the volunteer jobs require the participant to pay program fees as well as travel costs. Most short-term volunteer jobs will not pay. You are usually expected to pay the organization a fee
which would cover your flights, accommodation and food. Volunteering means something different to almost every organization you come across. Some agencies will cover your flight and cost of living while you are working and some are true "volunteer" projects and expect you to cover all costs for the privilege of the experience.

If you are looking for a more meaningful way to spend a few months in Africa than simply traveling around, volunteering is a wonderful way to spend your time. Most jobs that last less than a year or so are going to be the ones you have to pay for. Jobs that require a commitment of more than a year will often offer a basic stipend to cover some of your costs.

Here are additional organizations involved with volunteer work in Africa. However, please note that these organizations require participant to pay program fees as well as travel costs.

Conservation Africa is a British based organization that offers conservation volunteer projects throughout Southern Africa. As well as offering many opportunities to get involved with major wildlife reserves in Southern Africa, there's also a compelling 2 week game ranger course.

Ecovolunteer.org offers volunteer opportunities in Cameroon to work with elephants, in Zimbabwe to work with wild dogs and Swaziland to work with rhinos. You pay for flights and program fees.

The Earthwatch Institute offers expeditions all over Africa to help scientists and conservationists with their research. You can help survey the coastal ecology of the Seychelles; work with cheetahs and their race against extinction in Namibia; Find out how the Samburu people of Kenya traditionally use plants as medicine; and much more.
