Zambia Volunteer and Safari (DZPT)
For travellers eager to give a little something back to the world that’s given them so much, Zambia needs you! This adventurous trip across three countries combines an authentic safari odyssey through national parks in search of the Big Five with time spent working on volunteer projects that benefit the people and animals of the region. Walk with rhinos and gain personal insight into the culture of the Shangaan people one day, participate in the Livingstone community volunteer program the next. Karma—it’s the ultimate travel rewards program.
Highlights: Volunteering at a Livingstone community project, Spotting the Big Five in Kruger National Park, gazing out across Victoria Falls, walking in search of rhinos and searching for wildlife from a 4x4 in Matobo National Park, witnessing Shangaan traditions, discovering the less-visited Zimbabwe.
Volunteer Cuzco Kids (TSPJMN)
Spend two weeks working at a voluntary drop-in centre for children and youth where they can get help with homework, a hot meal and participate in a variety of workshops. Children living in extreme poverty in Cuzco are often forced to drop out of school to work or beg on the streets to help support their families. You will be contributing to a project that provides children from poor families with a place to get guidance and support and getting more out of your vacation.
Highlights: Volunteering at a drop in centre for children, participating in workshops like leather working and jewelery making, exploring the cultures and history of Cuzco.
Volunteer Brazil (TSZPBN)

Spend the weekdays assisting in a community-run daycare that provides support to over 50 children, and spend your weekends touring Rio and the mighty Iguassu Falls.
Highlights: Getting to know the locals, volunteering at a daycare centre in a Rio de Janeiro favela (shanty town).
