By volunteering in Cape Town I made so many new friends, volunteered on rewarding programmes and explored everything Cape Town has to offer during my free time
I volunteered in South Africa during may 2022 and it was best experience of my life and by far the best country I’ve ever been to.
I was a little bit worried I’d be on my own but as soon as I walked through the door I made so many friends from all over the world and I still keep in contact with most of them.
"I always say to anyone thinking of going to South Africa DO IT! You will have the best time of your life!"
On volunteer days I’d go to my placement for a around 4 hours then afterwards would meet up with the other volunteers and go to the beach, shopping centre, beautiful walks etc...
I was actually surprised with how much there was to do! I’d also recommend going to the ‘gold restaurant ‘ for a true African experience, it’s definitely one not to miss. There is also a lot of great night life .
My placement was at Kiddies college school. The kids were adorable we painted, blew bubbles and sung nursery rhymes. All of the staff were lovely.
The hostel was very nice and had a lot of room, Kevin and Noel (who are part of the local team in South Africa) were also great and so welcoming.
