All Out Africa Volunteer Projects
Going traveling will be an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. You will learn, discover, grow, get active, make friends, take in nature, explore wildlife, immerse yourself in new cultures, get your adrenaline pumping and you will never be the same again!
All Out Africa is made up of a group of companies based in South Africa, Eswatini, Mozambique and Botswana. We cater to people of all ages and backgrounds, looking for a wide variety of African experiences, from tours, volunteering, research and internships. Our goal is to share our passion for southern Africa’s people, places and wildlife with the world and offer adventures that change lives.
Want to see as much as possible whilst you are visiting Southern Africa? Whether you want to dive amongst Whale Sharks in the Indian Ocean or ride in an open-air safari truck through Kruger National Park, All Out Africa Tours will give you an adventure of a lifetime.
Our volunteers experience Southern Africa, its people and culture more than any ordinary tourist. They work alongside members of the community to build shelters, teach classes or learn a new game– this experience is sure to give back as much as our volunteers put in. Combined with our Volunteer Tours division, we also offer in-house Volunteer Tours combined with volunteer and intern experiences; giving us totally unique products and the opportunity for clients to both give back and have a holiday.
Step out of the classroom and gain some exciting skills in your field, whilst living in southern Africa! Perfect for Interns and school groups.
Our Savannah Research Centre and Marine Research Centre are perfect partners for university students and groups looking gain field training from the African Ecosystem. Our projects have received international recognition for their good work, including 60 scientific publications!
All Out Africa is serious about our community. That is why we set up our Foundation to help us expand and sustain our projects from community development, childcare to Conservation. We value the support of our sponsors and donors- let us know if you would like to join our family.
Our Work in Eswatini
Despite its stable history and peaceful reputation, Eswatini has the world’s highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rate which has taken its toll on the population leaving many children orphaned or vulnerable. It also has an unemployment rate of about 30% which rises to over 50% among the youth. These factors combine leading to approximately 63% of the population living below the poverty line. Young people, in particular, are increasingly becoming vulnerable to poverty; around 31% of children in Eswatini experience health challenges due to malnutrition and on average children attend school for just seven years. Many of Eswatini’s children have lost their parents and thus face food shortages, lack of adequate shelter and care and most of all lack of attention and love.
Our work here involves creating a brighter future for orphaned and vulnerable children and supporting local business and economic empowerment. We particularly focus on six Neighbourhood Care Points (NCP’s) where basic education, life skills and two meals a day are provided to vulnerable pre-school children. To support these NCP’s we have 3 core projects volunteers can take part in; Sports Development, Childcare and Building. We also have a Savannah Conservation Project located in Mbuluzi Game Reserve.
