Uganda Volunteering Safari

We work with different organizations promoting healthcare, education, development and other programs to find befitting placings for our guests.

This volunteer experience in Uganda offers a unique opportunity for a tourist to leave a mark on their travel to Africa. Participants will volunteer in areas such as youth support, women projects, education, medical care and skills development.

During the week you will volunteer at the project for between 3 to 5 hours and spend the rest of your time interacting with the local Ugandan people and discovering the local Ugandan geography, history and culture. Guests will also contribute to the local Ugandan economy by supporting local shops and restaurants and lodging in accommodations owned by local Ugandan people.


Why you should volunteer on tour in Uganda

For many, the highlight of their Uganda volunteering Safari is the chance to get involved locally and lend a hand on a volunteering project. We partner with inspiring, community-based non-profits projects in Uganda that welcome travelers to help with both social and environmental efforts.

Embarking on a Uganda volunteer safari allows you to experience two sides of a fascinating continent of Africa – its local very friendly people and its world-renowned safari and tour offerings.
