Your own African adventure


The EXPEDITION Project connects inspiring, sustainable projects and individuals with each other and with the resources they need, and it shares their stories with the world.

We have been DRIVING CHANGE since 2012. We have travelled 36535km (22701miles), visited 353 towns & 155 projects, with the help of 405 hospitality partners, to meet and understand the challenges communities face. We then connect projects, communities, ideas and individuals with each other, share their successes and help take them one step further with contacts, expertise and funding.

Design your journey

Take your next trip with The Expedition Project

Spend 1 to 8 weeks exploring Southern Africa, meeting new people and trying new experiences

​Our roadtrips cater for researchers, academics, journalists, gap year students, sabbaticals & career breaks, or simple explorers wishing to have a more meaningful holiday.

Our approach means we are a sustainable, partnership driven social enterprise providing a combination of multi-project volunteering and multi-destination travel. This means every trip is different, some might be theme focused, but your involvement will most definitely be counted.
