The Destinations

VOLUNTEERING

The first nine days of your expedition will be spent in the back of a safari vehicle, exploring world-class game reserves in the Greater Kruger Area of South Africa, just 45-minutes from the world-famous Kruger National Park. You will join our team of staff, volunteers and interns in a beautiful thatched lodge and get involved in our ‘Big 5 Wildlife Research and Conservation Project‘, helping to gather data on Africa’s most spectacular animals, including elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos and buffalo. The BEST kind of safari, as you are also helping to conserve these amazing species for generations to come.

EXPLORING SOUTH AFRICA

During your stay in the Greater Kruger Region, you’ll get plenty of time to explore some of the more hidden treasures that South Africa has to offer, including the opportunity to discover the Panorama Route (Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and God’s Window are just a few of the sights to see). If you fancy it – and you’re not already overwhelmed animals you’ve seen while volunteering – definitely make time to do a game drive at the world-famous Kruger National Park. Adventure you’re after? Try kloofing. Want to spend a weekend relaxing? Well, there’s a pretty amazing pool at the lodge.

MOZAMBIQUE

Of course, there’s a LOT more to see on this expedition. Namely, Mozambique. Mozambique is a beautiful, tropical country that shares a border with South Africa and has some of the most beautiful coastline in the whole of Africa. You’ll be staying in beach-side resort of Tofo, in a vibey backpackers. It is perfectly situated close to local markets, scuba diving stores and training schools, as well as local restaurants. The accommodation is dorm-style, but is the perfect setting for some R&R. It is the perfect place to mingle with the locals, as well as other travelers from all over the world and, of course, enjoy the stunning beaches and warm waters.
