Fresh Faced New Voluntourism Site Launches With Fabulous New Volunteer And Travel Opportunities
Leading voluntourism organization African Impact is delighted to introduce their new website which offers prospective travelers a great resource for responsible voluntourism and gap year travel in Africa, internships, safaris and adventure travel.
By: African Impact
THE AFRICAN SPECIALISTS
Having already proved themselves as Africa’s leading voluntourism organization, their recent list of accolades includes a British Youth Travel Association finalists nomination for Green Tourism in 2009; as well as finalists nominations in both The World Travel Awards 2009 and South Africa’s prestigious Imvelo Responsible Tourism Awards for 2009, this recent expansion comes as no surprise.
“Introducing innovative travel options through our new ‘Learn with us’ and ‘Explore with us’ portfolios on our new site is our way of expanding our footprint in Africa and continuing our legacy of responsible and meaningful travel. This, coupled with offering travelers more life-changing African experiences to choose from, is really what keeps us motivated and operating with passion and pride” says Founder & Marketing Director Sarah Graham.
African Impact is also in proud partnership with The Princeton in Africa Foundation, facilitating long-term learning opportunities. http://www.princeton.edu/
"Life on the project [in Zambia] is progressing well. In such a short period of time, we have provided electricity to a local school, overhauled an Adult Literacy Course, tended to countless patients in home based care and clinic visits, helped a local farm harvest crops and prepare for the rainy season, placed numerous teaching volunteers in understaffed and underfunded community schools and made significant progress on the completion of a permanent classroom block for a local school. It is amazing to see the progression of projects over time and see the meaningful impact volunteers from around the world can have so quickly. I am excited for the new volunteers and new projects in the months to come."

EXPLORE – ADVENTURE AND SAFARI TRAVEL IN AFRICA
Africa is a place of the senses: the sound of untamed wildlife; the feel of the rhythm of its people; the sight of an African sun rising across open plains; the smell of rain on a dry earth; and the taste of untamed adventure... African Impact’s game ranging and bush courses allow you to explore the magnificent wildlife of South Africa. With extensive operations on the ground in Africa, and a solid network of partners, they have hand-picked their favourite safari and adventure travel trips, and can facilitate groups, short term volunteering, and numerous other tailored travel packages.
