Earthwatch has more than 20 research projects in Africa ready to put you at the center of majestic places, in touch with inspiring cultural traditions, and in close contact with awesome wildlife.
Whether you want your first encounter with this vast continent to be the “classic” African adventure you’ve dreamed about, or you’re returning in search of something off the beaten path, Earthwatch can give you the experience of a lifetime. With more than 35 years of experience sending people like you to Africa—people looking for something more than just a trip, people who want to make a difference—we’re ready to put you and your passion for helping at the heart of Africa’s endangered beauty.
Your options for an Earthwatch experience in Africa are as varied and exciting as Africa itself. If you’re wondering what’s right for you, explore some of the possibilities at www.earthwatch.org/africa.
Like all Earthwatch expeditions, our African experiences put you in the field to help the world’s leading scientists provide answers to the most urgent questions of our time. Your efforts will contribute to the critical decisions being made in Africa about resource protection and management, conservation, and sustainable development.
If you’re looking for rigorous field activity or just want to get to know Africa a bit more slowly, your African adventure awaits.
Are you ready to experience Africa? As part of an Earthwatch team, you can change the world - yourself.
