Why volunteer?

There’s no other place on Earth like Victoria Falls. Known as the Adventure Capital of Africa and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the variety of activities to enjoy in this area is truly unlimited. Make yourself at home at the world’s largest waterfall system.

This is a dream location for any traveller looking to connect with nature in the most unforgettable way. For the adrenaline junkies, you are in the right place. Take a leap of faith as you bungee jump into the gorge of the falls, or take to the water, as you white water raft down the Zambezi River.

For those looking for a more relaxing experience, there are river cruises, hikes and the most incredible sunsets. Now, those looking to experience the falls from a completely different perspective, take a stroll through the rainforest along the edge of the gorge and experience the Falls in all its thunderous glory. Or take the “flight of angels” and view it from above.

For those wildlife enthusiasts; you are in the prime spot. With the town bordering the un-fenced world-renowned Zambezi national park, wildlife spotting opportunities come thick and fast; whether you are on a world-class safari drive, or simply watching an elephant wondering the streets.  Simply Incredible.


About Fuller Forest (Victoria Falls)

Our volunteer village is nestled in Fuller Forest – 4000 acres of pristine forest estate, surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna. You will stay in our spacious and authentic safari tents of 2-4 people with a large ablution block just a few steps away.

In your free time, you can enjoy the volunteer lounge overlooking the watering hole and your quintessential bush surroundings. Enjoy 3 wholesome meals a day, freshly prepared by our onsite chefs and build friendships with fellow volunteers.

It’s only a 20-minute drive to Victoria Falls Town, which boasts a variety of restaurants, bars, shops, steps from the magnificent Falls themselves. The forest is also only a 10-minute drive from the Victoria Falls international airport.

So, you have the best of both – immersed into the tranquillity of the African bush, surrounded by wildlife, our resident lions & nature; whilst moments away from the hustle and bustle of Victoria Falls, a tourist hotspot with a vibrant atmosphere and unique opportunities.

You will be waking up to the sounds of crickets and birds every day, the lions roaring, or elephants trumpeting. Here, each day will offer exciting new experiences and surprises.


“By volunteering with Volunteer Encounter I have learned so much, I have got experience of wildlife and conservation of nature that I could only dream of just by going here for a month. I have grown so much as a person, especially by going here by myself. I have met so many wonderful people, met friends for life. Besides the volunteer work, the weekends have been filled with a lot of amazing activities that you can find here in Victoria Falls. These four weeks will be with me for life.”
