We used Go Volunteer Africa to plan our honeymoon in October 2019 for two weeks in Tanzania and Zanzibar and I must say they are the best. We wanted to have a meaningful honeymoon with some engagement at a vulnerable children' centre in Arusha, a safari to Serengenti and honeymoon experience in Zanzibar. We were well recieved at the airports by our guides and we got the best deals since they got us the best hotels in both countries. The activities were well planned out and they kept communication throughout our entire trip to ensure everything was running smoothly. They made everything perfect and we would like to thank especially Paul for taking care of us and inquiries. We are definitely going to be using Go Volunteer Africa again because with them you get personalised services. Thank you GVA team for making our honeymoon in Africa memorable!!

I spent six weeks in Zambia with Go Volunteer Africa. It was an amazing and life changing experience to do volunteering work in Zambia! The host family was of great help, both during the project weeks as well as other activities in the weekends. The overall experience was just incredible and those weeks have significantly changed my life forever. The country manager was an amazing man and he is doing an incredible job and there is nothing I can say but thank him. He did not just continuously ask if we were fine and made everything to make us feel comfortable but also organized trips for us and even joined us on several trips so that he can ensure that we were safe. I worked with a local school and the work was also fulfilling and it differed a lot from helping in the classroom to sports and lots of outdoor activities. It is completely up to the volunteer what he/she wants to do to support the projects. There were two other volunteers living with me for the whole time of my stay. I can just recommend going on such an experience as it will change your life forever.

Very memorable experience with Go Volunteer Africa in Uganda. As someone who volunteers quite often I must say this organization was by far the most organized and affordable. My favorite experience of the trip was the home stay and the children we taught (I grew a little too attached to some of them!). Advice for future volunteers would be to pack appropriately (follow the packing list they give you). Not only are they incredibly helpful in your decision making process, always responding to emails within 24 hours, they genuinely take the time to ensure the program is right for you, rather than pushing for the sell. All the pre-booking and booking information is invaluable and gives you a real insight into what to expect from your project. This support is added to by knowledgeable and genuine advisors who have visited the project and have impressive knowledge of what to expect. The actual projects are well selected to ensure your help is definitely needed and logistics including transport was well thought out. Compared to several other volunteering organizations I have spoken to, GVA stand out a mile for their first class service, ethical prices and outstanding organization skills.

I had a really positive experience with Go Volunteer Africa. The level of support and friendship I received from GVA staff members and fellow volunteers made this an incredibly rewarding and positive experience. I researched a lot of organizations before I went to Kenya, some of which were cheaper and some better organized than Go Volunteer Africa, but I really wanted an organization that was part of the community. It was such an amazing experience and I got so much more out of it than I thought, the cultural immersion, chatting with the kids, sharing meals with local families all made me feel so much more than a tourist or even a volunteer, I really felt part of the project. I was in Kenya for 4 weeks and then traveled to Tanzania for another 2 weeks. I would recommend Go Volunteer Africa to anyone but if they do not have what you are looking for just get out there and do it you will not regret it!
