Not just a regular family holiday

Why not think outside the box and do something different this year with your family? While others will be booking the predictable two week holiday sitting in a hotel by the pool in Spain, you and your family could be helping to look after elephants in any one of our beautiful locations in Sri Lanka, Nambia or Thailand! We are a UK company offering family volunteering projects abroad. You can choose to volunteer with a range of animals and conservation projects across the world and give your children the opportunity to see what life is like away from their regular comfort zones.  Our programmes offer the chance to make a difference to the lives of endangered animals and bring recognition to the environmental impact of humans. Your family will be able to stay in locations you never dreamed of and work with unique animals and friendly locals, who will make this a lifelong experience to remember. You can check out our handy volunteer guide to help you decide which project is right for you, and where.
