Camp South Africa Overview

Soar towards a Summer Adventure, prepare for a wild trip with Camp South Africa.

With trips to a Lion Park, Bloukrans/Storms River as well as an enthralling road trip across the Africa to Cape Town, we’ve mapped out a splendid Summer packed with pleasure!

There are an array of roles available for our applicants – tailor your Camp application to suit your preference and depart to the depths of South Africa in search of your once-in-a-lifetime voyage.

Partake in the Camp South Africa teaching project, with the option to combine this option with sports coaching. With an itinerary comprising time in a Primary School and Special Needs School, you’ll gain a wealth of diverse experience and develop a range of new skills.

If you’d rather avoid the classroom, don’t worry! Our sports program is the most-popular option amongst Camp South Africa applicants and has consistently proved a sure-fire hit with students and participants alike; no experience is necessary, simply bring a positive attitude and a desire to make a difference in the local community via sport. While PE isn’t a subject included on the curriculum in South Africa, rest assured, students are sports fanatics and your influence will be appreciated!

Why not extend your stay and combine your South Africa sport experience with our animal conservation project? Delve into the realm of a world-class game reserve, and make a difference to the lives of these incredible animals (lions, African elephants, buffaloes, rhinos and leopards).

South Africa is home to incredible opportunities that can truly transform your post-Camp experience: buckle up for an eight-day road trip from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town, scout some of South Africa’s stunning wildlife with the Camp South Africa Safari Experience, brave a bungee jump or ten-thousand feet skydive, or even shack up in an underground cage next to a shark – the choice is yours!

Begin your reign and crown yourself King (or Queen!) of the Jungle with Camp South Africa.

“I had an amazing time in South Africa as all the reps were very helpful and friendly, as they always went the extra mile to make the experience great. The accommodation was lovely and all the trips I took part in were excellently organised. I would go back in a heart beat.”

– Veronica Scotton

Camp South Africa Schedule

Animal Conservation
  • Operations run from approximately 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
  • Evenings are yours to relax and get to know all of your new friends who are also joining you on the experience.
  • There may be a need for early morning or late night activities dependent on the tasks at hand.
  • Weekends are available to enjoy at your leisure! We can advise on a range of local adventure and leisure activities. These range from cultural tours to adventure activities which include canoeing, quad biking and horseback beach rides. The beautiful City of Port Elizabeth is just a short drive away and boasts one of the most beautiful shorelines in all of South Africa. Why not try your hand at surfing? Or really step outside your comfort zone and do a Skydive, or even better, get up close and personal with the Great White Shark during a Shark Cage Dive!
  • If you prefer, you can choose to spend the weekend relaxing on site, relishing in the peace and tranquility that living on a game reserve has to offer.
Sports Coaching
  • Coaching takes place from Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm
  • On a normal day, you will leave the accommodation at about 8:30am and return at about 5:00pm. We say ‘on a normal day’ because as you will quickly find out, the way of life in South Africa is very relaxed and plans often change, so you may get a few half days off here and there!
  • Participants will coach in three different schools a day for about an hour and a half at each, and you will be transported to and from each by the team in South Africa.
Teaching English
  • Teaching takes place Monday-Friday 9:00am-1:30pm.
  • On a normal day, you will leave the accommodation at about 8:30am and return at about 2:30pm. We say ‘on a normal day’ because as you will quickly find out, the way of life in South Africa is very relaxed and plans often change, so you may end up only doing half a day.
  • Teachers will usually stay in the same school for the day, and alternate the schools during the week. However, volunteers can choose which school they prefer if wanted.
  • Due to the varying amount of children that may need extra help each day, teachers often volunteer for slightly fewer hours than coaches.
