Fancy Volunteering? Then These Countries Are The Best Places To Travel Too

11 January 2017

Volunteering is not only a wonderful use of your time, but it’s also a great excuse to travel. Keeping that in mind, if you have dreams of volunteering overseas this year, here are the best countries to go to:


Unbeknownst to some but Fiji is a brilliant destination for willing volunteers. There are many things you can do here but the biggest volunteer project revolves around marine life. There’s a problem developing in Fiji where a lot of aquatic animals are dying out and Coral reefs are also being destroyed. The issue stems from poor treatment of the water due to environmental waste, etc. You can go over there to volunteer and join up with a group that focuses on tackling this issues. You’ll be part of a team that surveys the quality of marine life and also helps educate local schools and businesses in the area. By telling people what they should and shouldn’t do, you can help protect the marine environment and save a lot of aquatic life in Fiji. Plus, it happens to be a beautiful island which makes traveling there all the more worthwhile.

South Africa

South Africa is a great volunteer destination for so many reasons. For one, it’s one of the best places to go if you want to work with animals. Many people have gone over there to become a South Africa volunteer that helps preserve wildlife in the area. It’s a country that’s home to lots of animals that are under threat. Consequently, volunteering organizations have set up reservations for these animals to live safely. You can go and join one of these reservations and start fighting for animals that have no chance of protecting themselves. You’ll be keeping them away from poachers and ensuring that some of the most endangered animals in the world are kept alive and out of harm's way. Definitely one of the top places to travel to if you’re an animal enthusiast looking for volunteer work.


We’ll round this article off with another African country that’s got plenty of volunteering opportunities. Morocco is a country that’s perhaps most famous for its soccer team. However, there are many children in this country that don’t get blessed with proper teaching. So, the opportunity is there for you to fly over and spend some time as a volunteer teacher. There are loads of schools that will be eager for your help. They’re particularly interested in teachers that can teach students English or French. Generally speaking, there are loads of countries in Africa that can do with some volunteer teachers. However, Morocco is often seen as one of the best places to go. It's safe that a lot of other areas and there are plenty of opportunities there. Plus, it’s a lovely country with so much to see and do in your spare time.

Of course, there are loads of other great countries you can volunteer in, particularly in Africa and parts of Asia like the Philippines. But, these three are the best places to go when you think about the volunteering opportunities available and the additional attractions in each country.
