EDGE of AFRICA
Company (0-10 employees)
EDGE of AFRICA is combining a visit to breath-taking countries in Africa with a life-changing volunteer experience.
Our vast variety of wildlife, environmental, sports, medical and community projects ensures exposure to the colourful heritage, cultures and traditions these countries have to offer, with the valuable benefit of making an actual, tangible difference in the lives we touch.
Our private organisation operates without any official funding. We rely solely on the goodwill, dedication and enthusiasm of our team members and volunteers.
As winner of the 2010 Welcome Awards for best South African tour operator, we accommodate all ages and nationalities, and guarantee an authentic, African experience in a safe and beautiful environment.
The main aim at that time was to contribute towards conservation putting emphasis on community-conservation projects.
Within a year, it became clear that there was a great need in various sectors of the local community for support and specialised assistance. EDGE of AFRICA stepped in and began forming strong bonds with the local people and various organisations.
By the end of 2007, we had established community, sports and medical projects which were run solely by the goodwill of volunteers and our small EDGE of AFRICA team.
To this day we maintain those strong relationships and our network base is expanding. We have become respected in the local community and act as an umbrella organisation encompassing a variety of organisations and individuals.
