The Kruger to Coast Volunteer Expedition will take you through some of the best that southern Africa has to offer in terms of wildlife, culture and beaches.

You’ll have the amazing opportunity to see some of African most incredible wildlife, snorkel with whale sharks and paddle to tropical palm fringed islands but you will also have the opportunity to participate in an important community development projects.

Begin in Swaziland where you will get involved in grass roots community projects. Embark on a 5 day camping safari through the world famous Kruger National Park to spot big game. Venture to tropical Mozambique where you spend time on world class Indian Ocean beaches.

Project Details

There are 3 distinct parts to this travel experience each with its own interesting flavor. In Kruger you will be joining a camping safari holiday. Here your days will be spent on game drives searching for the incredibly diverse wild life that this world renowned national park has to offer, while at night you will be camped out under the African stars, sitting around a crackling campfire listening to tales of the African bush. While in Kruger your guide will teach you about the animals and plants of the African Savanna and how important it is to protect this beautiful but fragile eco-system.

When you arrive in the beautiful mountainous Kingdom of Swaziland your role will switch to volunteer as you get involved in projects that aim to uplift the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children. Volunteers have the option of orphan care in local communities, building projects for schools or households, sports development work such as swim classes and horseback riding lessons, or wildlife conservation research and data collection in Mbuluzi Game Reserve.

The final week of your experience is spent on the beautiful golden sand beaches of sunny Mozambique. After two weeks of hard work in Swaziland it’ll be time to relax in this tropical climate and swim the blue waters of the warm and inviting Indian Ocean. Mozambique is a colorful and vibrant African country like no other and it is here that you will get to spend the last days of your trip.--a wonderful finale to an inspiring tour.
