Summary

Zambezi Volunteer Experience

Zambia is an African gem filled with fantastic wildlife and beautiful scenery. The Zambezi River itself supports an immense amount of bird and wildlife, and you'll travel down this river on a canoe safari while camping out on deserted islands under the stars - the perfect way to experience the tranquillity of this important river.

You'll spend 3 nights at a game reserve, with ample opportunity for game viewing. Whilst here, you also have the chance to do some volunteer work: participating on animal protection walks, or visiting the children and assisting with the vegetable garden at a local school. 

This trip is perfect for the adventurous traveller who want to experience the Zambian wilderness while canoeing along the Zambezi, enjoy viewing the wildlife in a game reserve, and also leave knowing they have given something back to the people and the area!
