Mature Travel

Whether you are approaching retirement, already retired or just taking a well deserved break Amanzi Travel welcomes mature volunteers on a wide variety of projects. Having worked hard all your life, now is the time to do the things you have always dreamed about. Whether you want to travel with your children, grandchildren, partner, friend or on your own, Amanzi Travel has a wide range of options and choices for you.

No qualifications are required for the majority of them, only enthusiasm and a desire to use your life skills, experience and patience, to make a real difference to the people and wildlife in Africa!

It is often found that mature volunteers have the greatest impact on the projects and the communities in which they are based and gain enormous fulfilment and satisfaction from their work.

While volunteering alongside people of all ages is a popular choice for many mature volunteers, Amanzi Travel recognises that some would prefer to work and travel together with people of a similar age. Amanzi Travel can advise you on particular projects and find out the ages of the other volunteers scheduled to be on a particular project at a particular time. Amanzi Travel can also put you in touch with other mature travellers who have previously volunteered or are planning to go.

Amanzi Travel can also offer advice about the climates in particular African countries, the seasonal temperatures and altitudes which may be experienced and any individual concerns you may have. Amanzi Travel are happy to discuss travel insurance and are also able to advise on countries which require more limited injections. Not all African countries require Yellow Fever or even Malaria tablets. Amanzi Travel can also recommend a number of particular locations which have accommodation suitable for couples or for people who prefer private rooms.

Amanzi Travel can offer a wide variety of short-term or longer-term options, whichever is more suitable to you. For example, there is the 5 day Wildlife Photography Course, the 7 day Kilimanjaro Climb or 2 weeks helping on the Zanzibar Rural Teaching and Community Project; or longer-term projects such as 2 months at the Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary and Bushman Medical Clinic and up to 3 months on the Cape Town Teaching and Community Development Project. The options are endless.
