AFRICA VOLUNTEERING - travel tips

Traveling to a country in Africa or some other country abroad? Here are some quick tips to make your trip much safer and easier:

  • Be careful when taking photographs, videos or using binoculars. Such activities may be misunderstood, especially near military installations

  • Familiarize yourself with local conditions and laws: While in a foreign country, you are subject to its laws.

  • Check whether it’s safe to drink local tap water — if not, stick to bottled water and avoid salads, non-peeling fruit and ice in drinks

  • Use your judgement when buying and eating food you’ve not prepared yourself

  • Respect the environment – don’t buy wildlife souvenirs, conserve resources like water and don’t drop litter
