A varied and insightful volunteering, cultural and travel experience. 3 of Southern Africa's beautiful destinations: South Africa, Zambia & Zimbabwe.

Three separate 2-week volunteering projects in three of our project locations.

This compact Southern African Experience is designed to offer you a varied and insightful volunteering, cultural and travel experience through three of Southern Africa's most appealing destinations: South Africa, Zambia & Zimbabwe. In South Africa, travel the gorgeous Western Cape Route, home of the majestic Outeniqua Mountain. Then experience Zambia and Zimbabwe from either side of the awe inspiring Victoria Falls... in Livingstone, Zambia, and at Zimbabwe's Lion Breeding Project, where you can really walk with Lions! "The walk with the lions was the highlight of my entire life!"

This really is a unique experience. With a selection of voluntary work projects to choose from, as well as additional cultural courses available to you in each city, we’ve done all the hard work!
All you have to do is handpick your perfect itinerary… This experience can also be offered in the opposite 'direction' if this fits in better with your travel plans.

YOUR JOURNEY THROUGH SOUTHERN AFRICA

GARDEN ROUTE (SOUTH AFRICA): 2 WEEKS
You will fly first into George or Port Elizabeth in South Africa, where you will be met at the airport by our friendly, lively organisers and settled in to your accommodation.

Knysna and George lie on the world-famous Garden Route and are conveniently placed halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. This is a very social environment where the majestic Outeniqua Mountain lies to the north and the Indian ocean to the South, giving the town a very moderate Mediterranean climate.

"Scenically Knysna, or in fact South Africa, is outstanding. Around every corner you would be met by a postcard image. Even in this winter season, the weather was great, sunny and warm. Because the pollution is at a much lower level in Knysna than back home, the sunsets and stars at night were so much more spectacular!!" Anuji Chahal

VOLUNTEER PROJECTS AVAILABLE ON THE GARDEN ROUTE:
Teaching English
Coaching Sports
Street Kids Project
Animal Sanctuary Project

Livingstone (ZAMBIA): 2 WEEKS
Livingstone acts as a gateway to the magnificent attractions of the Falls and the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park. "We plan on going to Victoria Falls tomorrow and maybe do some activity there this weekend. Our wildlife sighting has consisted of two lizards and the residential cats that roam the hostel and we are so anxious to see some elephants" Verity, Shona, Harriette, and Wanda

VOLUNTEER PROJECTS AVAILABLE IN LIVINGSTONE:
Teach English & other subjects

VICTORIA FALLS (ZIMBABWE): 2 WEEKS
Previously known as Rhodesia, Zimbabwe lies between two great African rivers, the mighty Zambezi River in the north, and the Limpopo River in the south. Covering an area of about 375,830 square kilometres, it is best known by tourists for the Victoria Falls, a great waterfall much larger than Niagara Falls.

To begin with, the Victoria Falls are legendary - a ferocious curtain of water 1,700 metres wide that plunges deep into the gorge of the mighty Zambezi River. Upstream from the Falls the river is placid and tranquil. Zambezi National Park preserves 56,000 acres along the river and there are fishing camps along the shore that take anglers out on river to catch tiger fish. Wildlife can be viewed in cruises along the river or on explorations into the park's interior.



Walking with Lions
"Just a quick note to say that I am having a wonderful time here. The volunteer programme here is just what I was after – plenty of hands-on activities, working closely with animals and helping in the conservation of a species. There are 5 volunteers here at present (there were 7 until this morning) but there is plenty of work for everyone. The work is varied and enjoyable, and the staff here are very friendly" - Madeleine Roberts

TRAVEL AND SUPPORT AND BACK UP

You will fly into George or Port Elizabeth where you'll be met by a member of Travellers South Africa staff. From the airport you'll be taken to your accommodation and settled in. Transport between locations is usually by comfortable, air conditioned bus, and you will be met by local staff on arrival in each new location. On your departure, you will be taken to the Victoria Falls Airport and waved goodbye with much sadness!

You have the option to arrange your own flights or we can assist you with your flight arrangements. If you would like us to do this for you, we will liaise with you regarding available flights and dates to suit you. All arrangements for your flight bookings/payments will be fulfilled by Murray Rogers Travel Ltd., ATOL No. 6856. (Read more about Murray Rogers Travel Ltd.) Where possible, we arrange for two or more people to travel on the same flight and we will let you have the names and telephone numbers of other volunteers on your flight, so that you can chat to each other or even meet up before leaving for your placement.

VISAS:. We'll send you all the necessary forms and information and make the process very easy for you.

Where possible, all flights we arrange for you have changeable return tickets because many of our volunteers choose to extend their stay once they are in their destination country. Changeable return tickets enable you to do so, within the limits of your visa and the level of your air ticket, of course. If you choose to book your own flights, you should endeavour to get a changeable ticket.

We can also arrange your flight dates to give you additional time at the end of your project for travelling around and sightseeing - these are fascinating and wondrous countries!
