costs & dates

In most cases we ask that you cover the cost of your accommodation and food while visiting a project or organisation. This is worked out at approximately R300 per day and in most cases covers 2 meals - breakfast and dinner and accommodation. Volunteers staying for more than 3 months are entitled to a reduction in the daily rate. For more details on rates and availability please contact us on


Some of our project work according to the South African school term schedules while others are ‘open’ all year round please indicate your preferred dates when making an enquiry and we will advise on availability.

Payment Options

VSA act as a conduit between you and the organisation or program you are volunteering with, we do not take any fees as we are generously supported by The Saville Foundation. Each volunteer program or organisation have their own method of payment which is negotiated directly. In most cases they require a deposit to ensure your place is required with the final payment payable on departure. You are welcome to pay by credit card, direct deposit or in cash.
