About Us


I always hope that volunteers leave knowing that they have contributed to something worthwhile, they have learnt about the beautiful African soul and taken away life long memories from this breath-taking continent.

Dayne Davey(Founder, EDGE of AFRICA)

EDGE of AFRICA was founded in 2007

At EDGE of AFRICA we have formed strong bonds with local people and organisations. They have helped us to identify projects which make a real difference.

These are run solely by the goodwill of volunteers and our small EDGE of AFRICA team, under the guidance of specialists. To this day we maintain those strong relationships and our network base is expanding.

We have become respected in local communities and have a strong ethos of community empowerment and environmental restoration.

We are combining a visit to breath-taking countries in Africa with a life-changing volunteer experience.

Discover the colorful heritage, cultures and traditions Africa has to offer. As one of our volunteers, you can rest assured that you will be making an actual, tangible difference in the lives we touch.

We operate without any official funding. We rely solely on the goodwill, dedication and enthusiasm of our team members and volunteers.

As winner of multiple awards, we accommodate all ages and nationalities, and guarantee an authentic, African experience in a safe and beautiful environment.
