Volunteering at Bluemoon Backpackers South Africa


Volunteering in South Africa is much more than just a vacation trip! South Africa gives you a new way of life and will quickly captivate you. Let yourself be infected by this multi-faceted and fascinating world. Your volunteer work in South Africa means for you a colorful mix of different cultures, breathtaking nature and unforgettable experiences.

As a volunteer in South Africa you will experience the sunny sides of one of the most fascinating travel destinations in the world, but also get insights into a socially weak system. South Africa has been on the way to becoming a functioning democracy since the end of apartheid. However, active support is still needed in social, craft and conservation alike.

During your stay as a volunteer you will get to know the town of Cullinan, which impresses with its unique surroundings. However, there are poor communities in the outskirts of Cullinan. Here are the so-called townships. With your social commitment in one of our volunteer service projects, you will provide active support and get to know the boundless hospitality and joie de vivre of South Africans!
