The real African experience

Gozololo Volunteer and Travel provides a great, positive, and sustainable immersion into South Africa culture at a very local family and community level, and extends that beyond going across provincial borders and to other countries. It is therefore extremely multifaceted. Also, Sandile is a very experienced global traveler himself, so his experience and expertise provide a full and rich experience for anyone that signs up. Go experience Africa, by Africans, for everyone!

Amazing organization to work with

Sandile and the rest of the team at Gozolo, is amazing. They offer a true community oriented volunteer experience, where volunteers can offer their hearts and their hands to helping an organization that is already making a difference in people's lives, make more of a difference. This is not an experience or an organization to come and try to change and make more to your liking, but rather a chance to open your own mind and heart as a volunteer to learn and experience South African culture and community in its finest forms.

Having a great time

Our time in Umgababa was amazing and we enjoyed every singel day. To work with the children is so much fun. If u see them u have to love them. In the center is a lot of work to do. Teaching and entertaining the children, preparing the food, cleaning up and help where help is needed. Our work was to support the two lovely women who are working at the center. It was a great experience to work with them together. We felt very welcome and when the work was done we always had a lot of fun. U will spend your time with Sandile on the weekends and he will show u nice places in Durban and surrounding. Our weekends were the best. We went out for dinner, went to concerts and other events. To live with Sandile is very nice and u get closer to the Zulu culture and the real african lifestyle. We also visited the other children center in Kwa Mashu and celebrated the Heritage Day together. Best day in South Africa! If u want to come here we promise u u will have a great time. Most important things are that u can work in a team and u should be openminded for new things. Buy be aware that the life here is different. Thank u so much for having this awesome time together. Best regards to everyone and we are pretty sure we will see u again !!!!!!
