The EXPEDITION Project is a social enterprise that undertakes annual journeys around South Africa in search of the nation's stories, dreams and heartbeat. This is done thanks to community participation and corporate social investment.

Our primary aim is to take stock of our social and environmental challenges, assist with practical solutions and inspire sustainable change through innovative partnerships. We are looking to connect with individuals with success stories, communities with ambition and projects with passion. If you want to work with us then we want to work with you.

Children's Day Projects


To celebrate 'Children's Day' here is a shout out to a few amazing projects visited by The EXPEDITION Project during our 2012 & 2013 trips:


Along the Sea You Later - #TEP2013 Route 3

Dyer Island Conservation Trust, Gansbaai
We managed to fit in a last-minute but very worthwhile meeting with Wilfred and Allison of the Dyer Island Conservation Trust in Gansbaai. The Trust was established in 2006 and clearly carries the passion of everyone involved. The eco-tourism activities of Dyer Island Cruises and Marine Dynamics, which have been awarded whale watching and shark cage diving permits, provide much of the financial backing for the Trust's core activities.


Hessequa Highlights - #TEP2013 Route 3

Riversdale: Ha!qua Youth Program
From the outside it looked like there was nothing going on, which made sense since our visit fell during the school holidays. At closer inspection, it was clear that we couldn't have been more wrong. The hive of activity and range of projects running at Ha!qua Youth Program surprised all of us.


Southernmost Projects - #TEP2013 Route 3

Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative
We visited the Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative (ABI) offices in Bredasdorp and were intrigued to learn about the similarities between some of the objectives of both ABI and The EXPEDITION Project. Like The EXPEDITION Project and among its many objectives, ABI aims to facilitate and improve networking and coordination between like-minded groups, with a particular focus on conservation in the Overberg. Specifically, its objectives are known as their “5 C's”:


Hearts of the Garden Route - #TEP2013 Route 3

Plettenberg Bay is known for its stunning beaches and glitzy holiday homes, but we found a gem of a different kind in Kranshoek on Plett's Robberg Peninsula. This was a re-visit for The EXPEDITION Project and Phillip navigated the team around to the ongoing projects of Kranshoek.
