Want to Volunteer?


Thobeka Backpackers is the ideal accommodation base if you are an education, medical intern or exchange student wishing to volunteer or simply make a difference during your gap year, career break, leisure travel or working holiday in South Africa.


Volunteers are given a program depending on the length of stay, transport if necessary - many schools are within walking distance - and mentoring throughout the volunteers stay.


Special rates and excursions are available to all Thobeka volunteers.




The benefits of this extraordinary experience are plentiful and include the opportunity to speak English daily if you are from a non-English speaking background, gain hands-on experience in your field of interest, share your skills, meet like-minded people, contribute to rural communities, learn about Zulu culture and discover yourself.

Teachers and education interns are also encouraged to offer their services in educating children and adults living in our rural village thus contributing to the growth and development of South African people.

Visit Thobeka and be a part of the positive change and development of this extraordinarily beautiful African country.
