Your Uganda Volunteer Adventure

The Uganda volunteer adventure projects in Uganda are based in Kyampisi Subcounty, a rural community with over 60 villages in Mukono district. An up and coming community based tourism hotspot with relaxed villages, farms and culture sites.

You will be able to easily explore everything else Uganda has to offer, such as the Mabira forest experience, Kampala city or head to the west for gorilla tracking and wildlife safari with easy transport links and our organized weekend trips.

The community based projects will offer an insight into the Ugandan way of life and everyone will provide you with the warmest of welcomes so you feel at home from day one.

Our programs start every first Sunday of every month throughout the year and you can choose to join us from 1-12 weeks.

Our structured and safe programs make volunteering in Uganda ideal for first time and / or solo travelers. Volunteering is the perfect way to meet like-minded people and allows you to explore Ugandan as a group.

You will be based outside the small T-junction town of Kalagi, where you will start and end your volunteering trip no matter which program you choose.

Uganda is renowned for its diverse and fascinating wildlife, including mountain gorillas! Get up close and personal with these iconic animals while topping up your tan – with sunshine!

Volunteering is FREE, you pay for your accommodation and meals after 4 weeks of free living.
