Take your next trip with The Expedition Project

Explore our destinations and choose our projects

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 own expedition with our help

Choose your projects – Depending on the project you will have the option to visit a project for a few hours (tourist option), join a project for a few days (experience option) or make a difference on a project for 1 to 4 weeks (volunteer option).

Choose your accommodation, restaurants and activities – Our unique approach means we support and are supported by hospitality partners who work with inspiring projects in their local communities.

Search our projects and expedition partners: Our partners, which include projects and hospitality establishments, are our collaborators across Southern Africa. Our aim is to connect and collaborate within as much of a town or community as possible and therefore involve local business and projects together. Search our partners here.
