Responsible Travel Destinations: South Africa with African Impact

South Africa is African Impact’s home (so we may be a little biased), but volunteering in South Africa is completely unique to any other destination on earth. Despite their complex history, South Africans are hugely welcoming to international travelers and are extremely proud of their tourism industry. Outside of it being one of the top destinations in Africa for those looking to go on safari or experience the continent’s iconic wildlife, it’s also an adventure-junkie’s paradise. You can surf, sky-dive, bungee-jump, go whale watching, ride horses, dive with Great white sharks, and even ski (yes, it can snow here!). Tourism is the backbone of the economy and an income-generator for a lot of communities, so South Africa is the perfect destination to volunteer if you’re also looking to tick some bucket list adventures off your list.
