If you want to volunteer, have a gap year or are just looking for an adventure then Africa Hands On is the perfect way to see Africa. We will sort out the important things while you explore volunteer or exchange ideas in Uganda. We think Uganda is a perfect window on Africa. It is the home of everything you would like to find or would like to experience in Africa! From Bio-diverse rain forests to Savannah landscapes. There are plenty of opportunities to learn, share your knowledge as a volunteer or just have an amazing experience. The people are friendly, the weather is lovely….

Africa Hands On will also organise trips for families with young children looking to give their children a genuine hands on experience of Africa.

Our groups are always small, we can offer you authentic experiences such as trips to a school in Uganda, drumming and dance workshops and of course a safari looking for the “BIG FIVE.”

We’ll sort out everything you need so you can relax and have an amazing experience, meet people and get stuck in. We are here to make your stay stress free. We’ll sort out your accomodation, we will pick you up from the airport, transport you everywhere and help you find the volunteering organisations you want to work with.

Whether it is for short term volunteering or for a gap year. Africa Hands On will help you find exciting volunteering opportunities with our various partners in Uganda. From schools to babies home, hospitals and many more….

We think it is a wonderful thing that you are willing to generously give of your time and expertise to others and we respect that. We carefully select our volunteer opportunities and closely monitor the various projects so that you do not have to worry about anything. Your trip to Uganda will be one you will never forget. From white – water rafting at the source of the river Nile to Gorrilla trekking and chimpanzee safaris, or walking in the Rwenzori mountains, the possibilities are endless…
