Namibia Volunteer in Namibia

"Lying under the tarpaulin while volunteeering in Namibia, looking out on landscape lit by the nearly full moon and admiring the (occasionally shooting) stars, it was hard to feel anything other than enormously privileged."

A land of stark contrasts and unparalleled natural beauty – you are invited to leave the rat race far behind to volunteer in Namibia. Bordered by South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, and Angola, and boasting a stunning 1572 km coastline, Namibia is a destination like no other. Known as one of the sunniest countries in the world with around 300 days of sunshine annually, it offers more than just bright days; its clear, starry nights are a spectacle of their own.

Why Volunteer in Namibia?

  2. Wildlife Conservation: Get involved in protecting and studying Namibia’s unique wildlife, from the Desert Elephants in Damaraland to the African Wild Dogs in Mangetti and Dolphins in Walvis Bay. Your contribution can make a significant impact on these species’ conservation.

Geography and Climate of Namibia

Namibia, often characterised by its harsh desert conditions, is actually divided largely into five geographical areas. This means there is some diversity across regions and there is the possibility to see different natural spectacles and experience various climatic conditions. With that said, immense heat is definitely a typical occurrence and temperatures can soar as high as 40°C in summer times.

Namibia's History and Culture

Namibia is a young nation, having only won independence in 1990. German and then South African colonisers held control of the country prior to this and many of the towns still demonstrate the intricate colonial architecture. Despite this, the multitude of ethnic groups across the country still hold closely onto ancient traditions and are famed for their relatively untouched culture and their unique beauty.
