Intern & Volunteer in Zambia
Zambia has stunning natural beauty, abundant wildlife, rich cultural heritage and is full of adventure. Most of Zambia’s wilderness remains untouched, providing an unspoiled experience through the authentic plaines of Africa. Volunteering in Zambia means you’re able to contribute to sustainable initiatives whilst being able to explore this beautiful country.
Kaya has a variety of volunteer projects and internships in Zambia. The country has high HIV rates, but lacks the resources in education and healthcare to alleviate these problems on their own. You can provide valuable healthcare advice and assistance, through our health promotion and community volunteering. Additionally, Zambian girls are often forced to support their families instead of receiving education. If you are interested in working in education for communities or rescue and release conservation programs, our community and wildlife projects are perfect for you.
Zambia’s location provides incredible opportunities for your free time activities. Visit the famous Zambezi river and Victoria Falls, on the country’s border with Zimbabwe. In these areas, you can hike through the forest and dare to swim in the Devil’s Pool at the edge of a sheer drop, or sign up for activities like rafting, abseiling and bungee jumping. In the city of Livingstone, visit the bustling Maramba market and try the local delicacies, such as caterpillars!
If you want to travel further afield after volunteering, you can make a short journey to South Africa on a safari and get the chance to see South Africa’s Big 5. Go on a ‘walking safari’ in South Luangwa National Park, which boasts the most concentrated wildlife populations in the world. Spend time with other fascinating animals at the Chimpanzee sanctuary and Animal Orphanage near Chingola.
Join us on an internship or volunteer in Zambia project working on a community or wildlife initiatives to make valid contributions to the long-term goals of local projects and explore a world unlike any you’ve seen before!
